Unluckily ... a dream can turn into its opposite the idea accomanying an affect but not the affect itself. Accordingly, I woke up in a 'mental fright' , even after the successful emergence of the idea that children may perhaps achieve what their father has failed to -- a fresh allusion to the strange novel in which a person's identity is retained through a series of generations over two thousand years.
(Freud, 1900 [SE 5], p. 455)
