Objective - A want. A desire. The lead must by trying to get something or to get away from something
Confrontation - what prevents the objective?

The Macbeth Effect — people who are reminded of sinfulness of some sort will feel the impulse to wash themselves — usually a correlated body part.

“I want to be a writer who reminds others that these moments exist; I want to prove that there is infinite space, infinite meaning, infinite dimension.
But, I am not always in what I call a state if grace. I have days of illuminations and fevers. I have days when the music in my head stops. Then, I mend socks, prune trees, can fruits, polish furniture. But while I am doing this, I feel I am not living.” — The Diary of Anaīs Nin
