The nucleus is ambiguous and persists in adults because the psychotic a part of the personality.
Symbiosis has a tendency to immobilise the analytic approach, so the analyst needs to mobilise, fragment and discriminate the agglutinated nucleus, whose ambiguity has a tendency to ‘blunt’ persecutory events. The psychoanalytic environment features as a silent safe haven for the psychotic a part of the character, the place it creates a ‘phantom world’. sooner or later, consequently, the environment itself should be analysed and the analytic courting de-symbiotised, as Bleger observes in a celebrated bankruptcy at the atmosphere.
