What does this quote by Freud mean - 'Where id was, there ego shall be'?

    I'm going to say that he meant that when we allow ourselves to reveal our more basic nature--our "pleasure" self, we will then have to use our ego, "Higher thinking-rational side" to explain it, or justify it, or give it validity.

    Freud had a naming system.  Id was one of his terms he loves to use...i forget what they mean though...i mean they are the pointless ravings of a madman after all...they mean nothing!
