Since we have not found the solution that we hoped for and required, we mark it with a written notationa simple letterthe opaque hole of our ignorance; we put a letter in the place of a response that is not given. Object a designates thus an impossibility, a point of resistance to theoretical development. With this notation we canm spite of our obstaclescontinue our research without the chain of knowledge being broken.
