Obsessive fears are unconscious desires. The woman who is obsessively afraid that her phone is tapped actually wants her phone to be tapped; that is, she wants someone to pay attention to her. A neurotic fear of such and such is actually an unconscious desire for such and such, this being the topic of this brutally honest exchange.

I liked the rapid-fire dialogue, and I liked how the dialogue was, indeed, dialogue, not monologue posing as dialogue.
The insightfulness. The author is a path-finder, not a dull secondary figure.
The quickness, the understated irony, combined with a reserved intelligence.
That neurotic symptoms are consciously experienced as their opposites.
Yes, this guy is a genius, but his recording equipment is wretched. He has substance, and even quite a bit of style; but I get the feeling that he needs to invest a little more in himself.
Far out claims that are all obvious truths once you think about them.
'The woman who fears that her phone is being tapped wants her to be phone tapped.'
The part where he is talking about how he hated working with machines; so he became compulsive about it, to counteract his real desires.
The part where the female character (played by a man...not ideal) is talking about her hysteria.
Yes, Kuzyssky narrated both parts; he should have gotten a female actor to do the female part.
