The Other is Immensely Powerful. A consequence of which is inevitably trauma becomes our fate. The unconscious response to trauma i think almost always is to bring back equilibrium by exercising power over the Other. However this is impossible and only brings further humiliation and misery. Consciousness gives us a gift: It makes us aware of this status quo. That: In the face of the All-Mighty there is nothing but surrender to the situation He has us in. In this acceptance is our escape from every situation.
Discomfort that surfaces is our brawl with existence.
