Abstract
In this paper the author explores the idea that the analytic field – that is co-created by and shared between patient and analyst – may be a resonator and instrument for revealing the presence of other fields. These “other fields” – to which the patient or those of his close or extended family belongs to – may produce favourable or even disturbing effects on the analytic field itself. He retraces the path that led him to his main subject passing through three main concepts, such as the “significant other”, the “modal operator” / “exploration of the field” and “the awareness of the existence of a shared field”. Eventually, he illustrates through a case history a specific type of field, namely, the “umbral cone” that may be projected even over vast distances by anything bearing a relation to the element of the sacred and by institutions connected with religion.
