From No Subject - Encyclopedia of Lacanian Psychoanalysis
The phenomena of superstition furnish another indication of the unconscious motivation in chance and faulty actions.
Because the superstitious person knows nothing of the motivation of his own accidental actions, and because the fact of this motivation strives for a place in his recognition, he is compelled to dispose of them by displacing them into the outer world. As a matter of fact, I believe that a large portion of the mythological conception of the world which reaches far into the most modern religions, is nothing but psychology projected to the outer world.
