"By assimilating something, you have the sense of being someone, or you imagine yourself as someone (an ego or self), who was accomplished a certain difficult task: you picture yourself as a thinker. 'True understanding,' on the other hand [...] is actually a process which goes beyond the automatic functioning of the symbolic order and involves an incursion of the symbolic into the real: the signifier brings forth something new in the real or drains off more of the real into the symbolic." - Bruce Fink, The Lacanian Subject
