The Suffocating Super-Ego: Psychotic Break and Claustrophobia

Karnac Books ePub

A.A. Mason


This paper is an expression of gratitude to Dr. Wilfred R. Bion who supervised the first psychotic patient I treated by psychoanalysis eighteen years ago. His support and understanding helped me to complete a successful analysis of that case. This encouraged me to continue the psychoanalytic treatment of psychosis in ten further cases, eight of which continued analysis unto completion.

One of the findings of this experience is presented here with the hope that another generation of analysts might be encouraged to pursue the treatment and investigation of these disorders.

The Suffocating Super-Ego: Psychotic Break and Claustrophobia

This paper has arisen from my experience with two different clinical problems: First, the acute psychotic breakdown arising spontaneously or in the course of psychoanalysis. Second, the treatment of claustrophobia.

I found at times that these two apparently separate clinical problems unexpectedly turned out to be different facets of a similar problem. Patients who develop psychotic breaks suffered anxieties, symptoms, and defenses which had a marked similarity to those experienced by patients who had been treated for acute claustrophobic anxiety. Similarly, these claustrophobic patients frequently developed symptoms and anxieties of a psychotic nature. This, quite often, was especially noticeable when the claustrophobic anxiety diminished.

5. Serial I/O

Elliot Williams Maker Media, Inc ePub

Square-Wave Organ

This chapter gives you a lot of bang for the buck. Before it’s all over, you’re going to have learned how to communicate between the AVR and your desktop or laptop computer and constructed a cheesy computer-controlled musical instrument.

Along the way, you’re going to learn a little about serial communications protocols, and how you can generate quick-and-dirty audio with the AVRs. Serial communication is the simplest possible way to interface your microcontroller with your desktop or laptop computer, your first step toward bridging the world of the physical and the virtual.

In addition to the basic kit, you will need:

How do computers or integrated circuit components actually talk to each other? The (too-short) answer is that it’s almost exactly like what we were doing in Chapter 3. One side sends a signal by outputting high and low voltage pulses on a wire that connects it to the other device. The other side, in input mode, listens to the voltages on the wire.

10. Email Management

Thomas A. Limoncelli O'Reilly Media ePub

How we manage our email says a lot about how we manage our time. Most system administrators let email manage them, not the other way around. This chapter discusses dos and don'ts for managing email. I propose a better way to manage email, how to deal with the backlog you may currently have, and other email-related issues.


Your email reader is not the most effective time-management tool. Anyone who has tried to use his inbox as his to do list quickly discovers this. It works great for a day or two, then suddenly you get a flood of emails, and it all goes to hell in a handbasket. Messages are mixed with to do items, and there is no way to prioritize or keep track of things.

Therefore, my recommendation is to keep your inbox clean.

To keep your inbox clean, you need to have a plan for what you're going to do with every email message you receive. Each possibility has to end with "delete the message," or your inbox will start to fill up. In fact, if you don't delete it soon, you'll be stuck going back over old messages to figure out what to do with them. That means you'll read each email message twice (maybe more) before acting on itnot very efficient.
