After a presentation of the adolescent process the author shows how this process fits into a scene that is anamorphic with the structure of virtual networks on the internet.
Leaning about what he calls the other’s tracks in the object, he demonstrates how the computer object induces certain specific forms of link between the subjects in the network. These forms are close to the phantom that structures the original and the adolescent process: the self-generation in the presence of the other and the two extreme derivatives, the self-generation at the expense of the other and the mono-generation. Taking up all these elements again, he demonstrates how adolescent initiation is a dual initiation, that of the adolescent by the establishment and that of the establishment by the adolescent.
