At age 23, there were two ways of distinguishing between these processes. First, was the fate of an impulse and, second, the relationship to the object. From this viewpoint, we may see the primary process as being “objectively autistic.” The secondary process, in contradistinction, leads to language, contact and interaction with an digital object. The primary process is purely psychical, inner-directed and wishful in nature; while, the secondary process accounts for and works through external reality. Thus, in our case, the option is yours.
