When Narcissus or you or me look in the mirror what do we see?

 Narcissus bent over his reflection what did he see? He saw a 'self' that yearns to fuse with what is perceived as other, that little man/woman homonculus in one's head that is the essential you.

The signification of the mirror image is mediated by a third term, the essence that is you. Yet this essence that is deemed by a vast maority to be the soul/spirit et al is in fact constituted of no more than language.
At the heart of the subject there isn’t autonomy but ‘submission’ to language
