In the classical setting the limited physical space of the consulting room contains the possibility of real action and allows unrestricted transmission of unrepresented states. However strong the illusions of presence created by telecommunications, we should therefore be extremely cautious about treating them as equivalent to real, physical presence for the purposes of psychoanalysis. The problem is not that the virtual reality created by telecommunication is "not real". Rather, it concerns the specificity of psychoanalysis as a peculiar kind of personal relationship and clinical practice, and one which requires a setting that meets specific conditions of intimacy.
Keywords: Presence, setting, telecommunication, body-schema, prosthesis, remote analysis, intimacy
