Projective identification, container/contained—the problem of language—clinical example—audience questions—the mystic and the establishment
Moderator: This is the second lecture, this is April 14, (1967) the second lecture of Dr Bion. We'll start now, Dr Bion, please.
Bion: I wanted to take up in some detail now this theory of projective identification, and really it also concerns the internal and external objects. Now, I want to do this by making use of visual imagery. I put it like this—well I think you'll see why I do so. I don't think that what I'm going to say ought to be taken as a description of facts, in fact I think we ought all to revise our views about this matter of reporting, or trying to report psychoanalytic sessions rather for the reasons that I mentioned last time. Namely, the whole of our vocabulary is concerned with sensuous experience, experience which can be picked up by our senses, when in point of fact, it simply is not applicable to the things that we deal with, while the things that we deal with are of unmistakable reality. So we are all the time suffering under the difficulties of having to use an inadequate vocabulary. So what I want to say about this is that one has to regard it as being a kind of simple way of describing a situation in pictorial terms, because doing so gives body to what is otherwise (or very liable to be, otherwise), a meaningless manipulation of abstract terms—in short the kind of thing that people complain about when they say we talk jargon.

After the north-end hub of Science World and the nearby Olympic Village, the main action on Main takes place further south in two key areas: around the intersection with Broadway and then south from 18th Ave: these are the twin hearts of Vancouver’s hipster scene. The first, the center of the Mount Pleasant neighborhood, is lined with independent bars and coffee shops, while the Riley Park area past 18th is perfect for airing your credit cards: it’s full of one-of-a-kind fashion, arts and accessories stores. Consider an afternoon of window shopping here, followed by dinner and a few beers in either area. Bus 3 runs along Main from the Main St-Science World SkyTrain station, but make sure you hop off regularly for some on-foot exploration. If you’re still hungry, stay on the bus south past 48th Ave where you’ll find the Punjabi Market district. Known by some as Little India, it’s a colorful, compact strip of Asian clothing stores and some of the region’s best-value, all-you-can-eat curry restaurants.
Wild Florida factoids, brought to you by Capt. Charlie Patrick, who runs a pontoon-boat tour on the picturesque Dora Canal in Lake County:
Leaving Charlie's neck of the woods for a little while, you'll find nature and natural history playing a large role in this region, which reaches from Flagler and Volusia counties on the Atlantic Coast inland to the scenic interior veins in Lake, Marion and Sumter counties.
Volusia County's name may not ring any bells, but say Daytona Beach and most folks know what this place is all about - the five Bs: beaches, bikinis, bullet cars, bikers and (spring) break, not necessarily in that order. The anti-glitz crowd may want to steer clear of this land ing site, at least the A1A/Atlantic Avenue strip where all the neon has managed to settle, but there are some nifty places to visit from touring and adventuring perspectives. For instance, there are more than 23 miles of beaches, in some cases 500 feet wide. Nine miles of them are open to traffic. The rest is closed because the sand is a nesting site for endangered sea turtles, including loggerheads. Speaking of the beach, it was the original Daytona International Speedway. In 1902 a car was clocked at 57 mph (a bit slower than some of you tackle the driveway) and 33 years later Sir Malcolm Campbell rode his Bluebird V, equipped with an airplane engine, to the tune of 276 mph. Today, the speed merchants earn their reputations at Daytona International Speedway, which is a couple of miles inland, far from the turtles and tides.
In the previous 13 chapters, we established a good foundation. You now have a better understanding of how Windows Vista works, what technologies it is built upon, and how it represents a departure from previous versions of Microsoft’s operating systems. Now we’ll get to put some of that knowledge to use in solving some of the everyday problems that can arise.
Computer troubleshooting is in many ways more art than science; it’s more of a marriage between your basic computer understanding and all the peculiarities of your specific environment. Truth be told, this chapter actually possesses very little capability in terms of helping you troubleshoot your network. What it can do, however, is get you pointed in the right direction so that you have a better idea of the troubleshooting resources that are at your fingertips.
Of course, there’s no way any computer book can possibly foresee every possible computer troubleshooting scenario. If you want to really know whether a particular troubleshooting approach will work, my best advice is to give it a try. It’s just a machine, after all, and you aren’t going to break it with a few clicks of the mouse.
