We have seen time and again that despite their apparently capricious, haphazard nature ("paranormal" events) are governed by the same laws which apply to the dream, to the neurotic symptom and to unconscious processes in general. This was also the view of Freud in his famous essay "On the Uncanny" and of Jung in all his writings. Since a dream conventionally requires a dreamer, Joyce as early as 1923 (one year into the writing of the book, which required 17 years) selected the name Earwicker for the waking ego of the protagonist. This is the point at which most Wake scholarship has gone wrong: since Earwicker is the waking ego, exegetes have thought Earwicker is the protagonist, but he is only one part of the protagonist. E or Ego or Earwicker is only part of the system-function.
