Some analysands persistently ask "how can I change?", or "how to change?". This is understandable; however, representing the change is a way for eluding the analysis. Likely, the change is imagined as the substitution of a belief/behavior with another (more functional?) belief/behavior. But this has nothing to do with psychoanalysis. Instead, the very idea of change, or improvement, or substitution are feeding the loop, the repetition. If the fantasy (or the phantasme) is not analyzed, the change is just an acting out. The analysis instead allows to loose or to lose some belief, and to listen to the ambiguity of the speech rather than acting (out).

thinking about castration. I find interesting how the super heroes are normally represented without genitals, although they are actually "non-castrated" characters. They are non-castrated and then they have no fears. Indeed, it is only when they accept the castration that they can become human.

Superheroes are normally depicted as characters who can do anything. Actually, they can do almost nothing: they do not rest, laugh, have sex and/or tell a joke. They do not age and/or retire, and of course do not die. There may be many changes in their story, but finally all remains the same, there is no advancement in their life. They are superheroes because have defeated the unconscious.

in the #obsessive discourse, the head is fought at least as much as it is needed. And being needed, it is experienced as a persecutor
