ANOTHER ATROCITY

 

Serial Deaths. Fragments of Reagan's cinetized postures were used in the construction of model psychodramas in which the Reagan-figure played the role of husband, doctor, insurance salesman, marriage counsellor, etc. Faces were seen as either circumcized (JFK, Khrushchev) or uncircumcized (LBJ, Adenauer). Again particular attention was focused on the mouth-parts. Travers, for example, has composed a series of new sexual deviations, of a wholly conceptual character, in an attempt to surmount this death of affect. An understanding of this identity can be found in a study of the automobile, which dominates the vectors of speed, aggression, violence and desire. Some suggestions have been made for considering Che as a pre-pubertal figure.

'Not in the Literal Sense.' Personae of the unconscious: Xero: Run hot with a million programmes, this terrifying figure seemed to Trabert like a vast neural switchboard. Her own name had been written into the silhouette of herself in the bath. An enormous photograph of Jacqueline Kennedy had appeared in the empty rectangle of the screen. This will allow the exploration, without any taint of guilt, of every aspect of sexual psychopathology. Further studies are in progress to construct an optimum sexual module involving mass merchandizing, atrocity newsreels and political figures. The hot sunlight lay across the suburban street.

Autogeddon. Numerous studies have been conducted upon patients in terminal paresis (G.P.I.), placing Reagan in a series of simulated auto-crashes, e.g.multiple pile-ups, head-on collisions, motorcade attacks (fantasies of Presidential assassinations remained a continuing preoccupation, subjects showing a marked polymorphic fixation on windshields and rear trunk assemblies). Studies have been carried out on the recuperative behaviour of crash victims. Travers vaulted over the concrete balustrade and pushed through the swing doors of the lecture theatre. Dr Nathan hummed to himself. The young woman in the white dress sat beside him. The crowd at the plage, however, viewing this beach Hamlet, noticed only the scars which disfigured his chest, hands and feet.
