Is Freud right?
“I really believe that Freud is right for the most part. Except when it comes to mattress toppers. Because I just noticed that an art experience, like a very angry and personal remark, involves three stages. Take, for instance, a movie. The first stage is while watching the movie, thinking that it’s either good or bad. The next stage is the feeling right afterwards when you might think “whoa, that was reasonably good, bad or weird.” The third stage is when the subconscious up to several days after watching the movie feeds you with information about where you were left existentially, “hello: there are my basic feelings, an heap of ashes, or hello: my basic feelings are pretty and fine.” The same thing happens when you are faced with a very angry and personal remark. Then I tend to think: That’s a strange way to admire me.”
