Desire is made of taboo breaking and restraint.
At the beginning of the endless chain of men's desires, the desire for food is the most fundamental. You can even find here the basis of all social relations. The men are sitting at the table, they are hungry and suddenly drunk to devour, to swallow, swallow constantly, without ending, hunger for power, sexual dominance, always more.
Once at the table, under their apparent elegance, they reveal a part of themselves, their unconscious desires in their purest and elementary forms. Nothing seems to moderate them, neither the highest considerations, nor religion ...
All desires have a common essence.
The appetite for power pushes man to use his surroundings and to eventually devour everything around him, to destroy himself and to stay finally alone. Loneliness and desire echo one another.
