Sample text

There are other experiences of nameless dread during the war, reminiscent of the first viewing of the tank, when he is gripped by horror and dread, for which “even now I can find no words” (p. 237). They seem associated with the re-emergence of night-time terrors from his childhood in India, which now appear to be acted out in actuality. At the beginning of the war, he is kept “mercifully ignorant” by a “sense of unreality”, and dissociated from the knowledge of his own fear—”which, for practical purposes, is as good as not being afraid”.

How can I wag my vestigial tail when I am made to think? Obviously—work at both ends, below and above the umbilicus, caudal and cranial. [p. 65] Bion’s self-analysis had begun. Like his baby daughter, he had to get off his bottom and start crawling: tail and cranium co-operating on both sides of the diaphragm. He was on track for the thought “invasion” of the Empire of the Mind, which was to be depicted representatively in the “artificial dream” of the Memoir of the Future. Aftersong And I include all, even of the enemy, I looked into my heart as comrades, Let orders say what they will to regulate Hate: few, but some I found, men and women To love as comrades.

P. 208] His “topological enthusiasm” represented another attempt to keep fear at bay, to stop fear from swallowing him up, devoured by his own nightmare: “Watch the Head devour its Tale”, as he puts it in the Memoir (p. 119). ” It is as if, “remembering” his own fear, he suddenly feels remembered by the Arf Arfer of his childhood, punished for the loss of his mother, which was nevertheless outside his “ghost-ridden” control. Bion regards himself as already having “died” in spirit when, at the place named, absurdly, Happy Valley (at Sequehart), he evacuates himself and his crew from the tank, and sends the cretaceous “skull” on alone to destruction minus the vulnerable “brains” housed within it.
