Last quote by Alexander Carpenter

The Dutchman's seemingly endless cycle of going out to sea, only to return to shore every seven years seeking but never finding salvation, reminds me of the repetition compulsion that underlies the death drive: the compulsion to repeat trauma, and to get stuck in a loop of activity that never arrives at a goal, in a spiral towards self-destruction.feedback
