Time and space are interdependent elements that constitute the basis of the feeling to be alive. In the psychotic world there is a zone, due to a lack of elaboration of a primary mourning, where time is still and cannot flow. Time is cancelled or substituted by space (schizophrenic dimension), or is so quick that can overstep space and swallow it, finishing to set up to zero even itself (bipolar dimension). The atypicality of the psychotic mental functioning must be deeply explored in its relationship with the time-space representation, in order to give the patient the possibility to reach an insight of his own defensive organization and to re-approach the feeling of being alive.
