like schizophrenic, or such. It's a curious thing to consider how we would be viewed and how we would act.
I do believe we have moments of total awareness of our subconscious, but we may not be cognizant of what it is we are experiencing.
The ignorance may come in not identifying what we have become aware of.
My question (to myself and to you) is - are these moments that my subconscious literally screams at me and makes me connect to it moments in which some thing (whether it be a realization or a threat or an idea) so important to the subconscious me that it breaks through the barrier of unawareness to get its message across?
Very interesting mental fodder surrounding all of this.
Go stand in front of someone, and face eachother. Stand directly in front of them, facing them, and ask them to raise their right hand. then raise your right hand. Are your right hands on the same side?
Questions for you to ask yourself:
1) How many animals are familiar with their reflection in a mirror?
2) How many animals can acknowledge their own reflection?
3) How many animals can recognize their own reflection?
4) How many single celled organisms can acknowledge and recognize and accept a mirror image for what it is?
5) How many single celled organisms are within you?
I wonder how conscious of my self's subconscious has to be to realize that my brain cells have difficulty exchanging information between them, because the cells that are taking in the information do not have enough empathy to comprehend that the signal they are recieving is a mirror image of the signal sent to them.
