Now the intriguing part of the research is a couple of real questions: what about India attracted them, aside the visible aspects of say religion & business. And, what body experiences did they have which met that craving the desire to travel & stay put, greater than the need. In the Lacanian world, desire can never be satisfied but it comes to fruition with the creation of a desire. And while I do think it is possible to answer what you do as a result of it, I do not think there’s a reason why you don’t have a desire.
Lacan: “desire begins to take shape in the margin in which demand becomes separated from need.” And as Slavoj Žižek puts it “desire’s raison d’être is not to realize its goal, to find full satisfaction, but to reproduce itself as desire.””
Sometimes I travel to go away, to think through. Sometimes I go away because I do.
