combination is a combination of complex units, while we were,
inhabited men, our pleasure was inhabited, our manias, grupal.
combination where sex and death are no more than positions related to the same
complex combination and not as is believed, that between the mute sex and the
spoken sex, death is placed as a difference and that in that burst, between
lights and shadows, the complex is determined.
also like to speak with you personally, what I don't at all know is when the
detour to Buenos Aires to speak with you, will occur. You know about my
haven't yet reread what is written, but this doesn't sound to me as a good
letter, especially considering that when I started to write it, I began with the
firm purpose of explaining everything
to you very clearly, as we can see good will doesn't exist.
although I have in my ways, oriental ways, I think that anyway what I want is a
meeting of the great ones in Madrid.
this time I have also learnt to read our own texts and let myself be modified by
them, as many times I let myself be modified by any other text. During this time
I have learnt what I shouldn't have learnt, I learn, for example, that the
written word modifies people, societies, states. And these findings are far too
many for a solitary man. I have been able to see how the cellular ageing is, by
today's standards, to foolishly accept one
by one, the laws imposed by the current systems.
so many years together, we have learnt that death doesn't exist because even she
can be adapted for love, but love, we know it, doesn't
exist because love can be adapted for death. And to end this crazy
letter, and hoping that you have understood that if INTERSUBJECTIVE RELATIONS
EXIST, WHAT CEASE TO EXIST ARE THE FEELINGS.
Cero Group International Congress
Psychoanalysis and Medicine
- Second Meeting -
Opening words by Miguel Oscar Menassa
I became 18 years old, in the year 1958, exactly 42 years ago, I started my
medicine course of studies and a few weeks after my psychoanalytical treatment.
At that age I already knew love, I had written my first poem and
had collected my first salary five years before.
glad to say that these words accompanied
me along the last 42 years: Poetry, Psychoanalysis, Medicine, Work, Love. I mean
that those five words opened all of my doors and built all of my limits. Daily
the combination of these words produces my desire and I know, though
theoretically, that this final knotting will produce my death.
now, standing out of me, I'll accept like all the known world accepts, that
today's man cannot live without poetry, without love, without work; then we only
need to demonstrate why Psychoanalysis and Medicine are so important for man's
we are already inaugurating the 21st Cero Group Congress, that for
the second consecutive time, wants to work in the development of a Medicine able
to incorporate Psychoanalysis as one of the most efficient therapeutic tools for
an endless number, and I'm not exaggerating
when I say an endless number of illnesses that only the psychoanalytical theory
can explain how they are produced and that therefore, only psychoanalytical
theory will define the way in which they will be cured.
we don't want Medicine to become psychoanalytical as is ambitioned even by the
media, because we all have a soul even if it's poor, and besides, we would like
Medicine to remain where it is Medicine, because the good it has done to
humanity has no parallel, but we simply think that not all illnesses belong to
Medicine. That is what we ambition, that the illnesses whose etiopathogeny,
production and development, possible treatment and cure depend on unconscious
processes, belong to Psychoanalysis.
if someone exaggerating would say that the patients who are about to undergo
surgery have also unconscious processes, and the mothers when breast feeding and
rheumatic people, who only complain when they work or make love, have also
unconscious processes, I would say to them tranquilly, because I have it
build with our work, a psychoanalytical consulting room in surgery rooms, in
delivery rooms, in emergency rooms, in paediatric rooms, a psychoanalytical
consulting room near our house so that relatives and friends who suffer these
illnesses that Psychoanalysis cure, start a psychoanalytical treatment without
young doctor might compete with the psychoanalyst, even knowing that in that
special case the appropriate medicine is a psychoanalytical treatment, he
doesn't derive the patient to the psychoanalyst.
had never occurred before to this young doctor to compete with the great
laboratories which manufactured the medicines that cured some illnesses,
especially when he made the right diagnosis.
are young practitioners of psychoanalysis who think that what they can't do,
their psychoanalyst can and what their psychoanalyst can't, psychoanalysis can.
Now they will have to learn with the same intensity that there are things which
neither psychoanalysis can.
young doctor has already learnt something: It isn't about all of us having a
soul that is unknown to us, but about that which man doesn't know, is the direct
responsible of certain illnesses.
complex unconscious affections are capable of producing, without the help of any
pathogenic element, bodily illnesses which can lead a person to death.
young psychoanalyst has lost his faith. Desires, even unconscious, die with man.
are illnesses, there are cosmic catastrophes that don't even need one gram of
what is psychic to kill.
are hungers that don't cease nor even speaking about them, there are wars in
which no peace treaty is of any use.
are sinister jails that wait for the one who speaks and loves that in naming
them, kill us for love.
hope that during the Congress I'm opening, we can converse, talk about words.
Madrid, Carbonero y Sol
I know that you hide among your fragrances,
among your resentments,
herb under the earth and under the water,
I love you.
COW WAS ALWAYS
A LITTLE CRAZY
BETWEEN THE COW
AND THE MORIBUND
A book by MIGUEL OSCAR MENASSA
am tense, I have appetites, hungers of millenniums and now they'll want to
content me with some piece of cheese, excrescence of some pastoral cow, or the
same cow beaten to death and quartered on the table, recalling
ancient rites, where men ate
each other, and that was love.
I stab my small knife mercilessly into the cow's heart and the cow moos, it tears itself with passion in front of the murderer. I, with surgical precision, separate grease and nerves and I give my beloved one a morsel from the cow's burnt ovaries.
-We're free, she says to me, while she entertains herself with the noise of her teeth trying to chew the burnt parts of the universe. Later, lighter, making a mirage of everything, a lie, she says to me with ease:
A magisterial cow that moos and murders all the time lives in me. Sometimes she seems in pain, but nothing matters to her, she knows that she was born to be beaten to death, and then she shits everywhere and the mad flowers eat what is essential of shit and grow rapidly towards the future."
