And the mother’s own capacity to tolerate patiently the initial refusal may affect the Phantasy 21 outcome. Expecting an ideal breast, which would return one to the imagined bliss of intra-uterine existence, the infant has to tolerate the breast that falls short of such an ideal. But, even though reality-testing has to start from the beginning of life, the real battleground for the development of a mature relation to reality lies in the move from the paranoid schizoid to the depressive position.
Growth and evolution of an individual are due not only to physiological growth and the maturation of the perceptual apparatus—memory, and so on—but also to accumulated experience and learning from reality. Learning from reality in turn is connected with the evolution and changes in phantasy life. Phantasies evolve. There is a constant struggle between the infant’s omnipotent phantasies and the encounter of realities, good and bad. The little girl who in the session could express her phantasies of a biting, spitting, dirtying ‘lady on the wall’ did not during the break have phantasies of a visual kind; nor dreams, as far as we know.
Melanie Klein came to the conclusion that if symbolization does not occur, the whole development of the ego is arrested. In this paper she concludes that excessive anxiety in relation to the mother’s body and the onset of guilt bring about a paralysis of symbol-formation.

She describes here a process which she conceptualized much later on.
