Analysand verbalizes thoughts

[On yet another subject you refer to an alleged psychoanalytic thread of interpretation in the book. I agree there is some element of that, and I don’t like it. My impression is it’s not at all in the same league with Kripal’s writings however. Regards, Kepler Re: Types of Readers

[Psychoanalysis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Freudian psychoanalysis refers to a specific type of treatment in which the "analysand" (analytic patient) verbalizes thoughts, including
free associations, fantasies, and dreams, from which the analyst formulates the unconscious conflicts causing the patient's symptoms and character problems, and interprets them for the patient to create insight for resolution of the problems.]

It is a pity that a highly technical term like Psychoanalysis is being bandied about so loosely. [TNM]
