AbstractExistential psychoanalysis argues that our primal repression is not sex but death; the repressed returns symbolically as all the compulsive ways we try to make ourselves immortal. The Buddhist claim of "no-self" carries this a step further:even death-fear projects the problem into the future; my deepest dread is the quite valid suspicion that "I" don't really exist. The consequence is that our sense-of-self is always shadowed by a sense-of-lack,which it always tries to escape. Dogen implies that life-confronting-death is an unconscious game each of us is playing with him/herself. This conclusion is used to criticize Heidegger's Being and Time.
