As a child Jack learned that love was dirty and desire reprehensible; that passions must be controlled by logic. As an adult Jack was taught that he should love for good reasons,, so now he is a reasonable lover whose passions are directed by logic and send out confusing signals to Jill. An analysis of Jack's behavior indicates that he behaves according to how you would expect a lover to behave-- because he is fulfilling conventional expectations. Jill does not feel fulfilled by Jack's logical desires and she desires that Jack would desire her with passions which were not controlled by logic. Instead, Jack behaves as he thinks that he should behave in order to be a passionate lover. Jill is mixed up by Jack's mixed up signals and can not analyze them in any meaningful way. Her logical analysis turns out to be meaningless, even though correct. Her passions threaten Jack's cover over his passions and intensify his tensions. Their love for each other occasions their double binds. Jill is confused by Jack's double level behavior. It is as if Jack is doing a very good job of acting out an assigned role in a play. His role is to act the part of a man who is passionately in love. He is such a good actor that in spite of his sexual inhibitions he behaves so much like a passionate lover that no logical analysis can tell the difference between his behavior and that of a passionate lover. Yet Jill feels the difference. She gets signals of the inhibited passions which lay covered up under the logical expression of their reasonably controlled initiations. Those signals occasion her doubt of the authenticity of Jack's passionate actions, and she feels that they are an act. She feels that Jack is acting passionate, rather than being passionate, because he has a duty to be passionate without being passionate. While the injunction against the desire holds on Jack (desire holds, Jack tries to to fulfill a duty to act out the expression which society assigns to the desire. The levels are virtually impossible to work out with clarity. Jack and Jill are very confused and can not figure out what the origin of their confusion is. The culture which put them in their double binds does not offer to release them from their double binds. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
