People don’t even have the right to work anymore. This is crazy! If people are denied the right to work, they very quickly get sick or die. Let’s continue.
Client: I'm very pleased because this year I didn't buy any new clothes. Analyst: What do you think about that?Client: I guess it means I've given up my mask.

Analyst: It refers to when people live more by their senses, the inferior elements,than by their psychological life.Genuine well-being is without a doubt spiritual (psychological) well-being brought about by contact with truth and beauty, because the human spirit isauthentic and harmonious, like a container receiving fresh water, as it is meant to.
CLAUDIA:So it looks like Keppe is speaking about another world, another planet, anotherhumanity, something totally opposite from what we live. But this world he is touching isnot some utopia. This is what we were once. We have decayed, we have declined from this
