The creator and master of Dragonweb showed me a caféteria, where he introduced the notion of Phantom and the concept of Subliminal Trauma to me. Well, I don’t know how confident this project should be treated but it really grasped my attention. What came to my mind is that the mechanism of the notion of ST correlates to the lacanian sinthome, where, simultaneously , there is something at the same time there isn’t. The very core of our existence is there, but we cannot grasp that. One might be reminded here of some sort of a poststructuralist way of interpreting this lacanian formula, still, what I want to emphasize as a parallel feature that is, there is a trauma (that had been secretly decoded into our mind), which is unknown to us. (Further corrections might be needed, indeed!)
But the ultimacy -questionwise- is the following: if a previously alienated trauma gets integrated and has effects on us, can’t we say that the situation is more complex? Namely, this is the work of the phantom, reminding us of traumatic past experiences.
