Lacan's Belief

The influential French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan would have much to say about the above clip. Fortunately for those concerned with Lacan's interpretation, I have applied his theories to this clip. On the most fundamental Lacanian level, the pilots who survived this terrible crash will never be able to overcome their trauma. Because, according to Lacan's theory on the unconscious, these pilot's unconsciouses will never be able to return to their previous selves. Severe trauma will always permanently negatively affect an individual, that is, according to Lacanian theory.
