Here’s the fourth episode of one of the “storyboard visualization” experiments that we conducted to extract the perceivedrepresented, and interpreted information from one of our early subject’s dreams (read this earlier blog post to learn more.)

Umberto Prunotto, CEO
================================

“I go to the door and open it.”

“It’s a tunnel to the other hotel. I start to enter.”

“I stop. Two policeman are at the front desk. I am afraid again.”

“I enter the tunnel and close the door behind me. No one saw. I realize that if I stay in the kingdom, I’ll either be its subject, living with regret, or a rebel, living in guilt.”

While he is in the lobby of his hotel, he notices a little door in a hidden corner: he draws closer – he knows that it gives access to a secret underground passage connecting the two hotels. The man cautiously opens the door and starts to go into the tunnel, but all of a sudden he hears the concierge speaking with two policemen. Fear assails him, and he goes out hastily, closing the door behind him, careful not to be seen by anyone…

[While he is in the lobby of his hotel, he notices a little door in a hidden corner that gives access to a secret underground passage connecting the two hotels. The law of the Kingdom prohibits communication with one’s own soul and with one’s own feelings. The man cautiously opens the door and starts to go into the tunnel, but all of a sudden he hears the concierge speaking with two policemen, guardians of the pre-constituted Order. Fear assails him, and he goes out hastily, closing the door behind him, careful not to be seen by anyone. The super-ego is an infallible cop who does not treat lightly those who seek liberty and joy, true communication and union. An Ethos deprived of Eros dominates everything: an unnatural Ethos, cruel and perverse, that can only generate fear, frustration, anger, and violence. There is no solution. If I live in the Kingdom I can only be a subject, that is, someone who will live with regret, or else a rebel, that is, someone who will live in guilt. In the Kingdom, no color is possible, only an irritating gray. There is no breath, only suffocation, no lightness, only unbearable weights. It is necessary to live in your own Kingdom, becoming at once King, subject, and rebel. The Father (the King, the super-ego), the Son (the subject, the ego), and the Holy Ghost (the rebel, the id) united in a single “person”, the triune God: a transformation of the Kingdom into a family, of the castle into a home, of fragmentation into recomposition, of contraposition into dialogue…]
