In the past, the resistance blocking these contents from becoming conscious caused them to be considered non-analysable. The other category of memories, the psychic memories, have time, because they have passed through consciousness, and, therefore, their pathological expressions are manifested as psychoneuroses or transference neuroses. In each memory, we find intimately interrelated components: actual, action, psychic, and texts1.
