What is “toroidal”?
That which is in the shape of a donut, with a hole in the middle. That’s what we really are like. If you imagine any human body without limbs, just a torso, you will see that there is a hole/tube running through us. It’s the GI (gastrointestinal) tract.
What is “oral”?
Consult Freud regarding the meaning of this term.
