Qua binary signifier?

Him: The subject appears first in the Other, in so far as the first signifier, the unary signifier, emerges in the field of the Other and represents the subject for another signifier, which other signifier has as its effect the aphanisis of the subject. Hence the division of the subject- when the subject appears somewhere as meaning, he is manifested elsewhere as “fading”, as disappearance. There is, then, one might say, a matter of life and death between the unary signifier and the subject, qua binary signifier, cause of his disappearance.
Me: Have you seen the trailer for Quantum of Solace yet?
