UNDER THE TABLE
Where he cannot be fully seen by others, the “strength” of a man is useless. Beneath the line of sight–under the table–he is merely a servant. He cannot use his strength or size as a means to suppress his need to surrender, and he cannot rely on the reaction of others for a sense of who he is deep within himself.
Being under the table is a metaphor for the subconscious. He is most fulfilled being hidden. He has more permission because he is out of sight and in a world beneath the judgments of others.
