This abject spectre, which continually haunts the ego and seeks to disrupt the continuity of body image, is all the more terrifying because it is a ghost incarnated in flesh, blood, spit, mucus, faeces, vomit, urine, pus, and other bodily fluids. Hence, the boundary between the body image and what it is not is not (merely) a symbolic one; rather it must also be understood as a corporeal refusal of corporeality.
