What if the subconscious is conscious during sleep, and the conscious is conscious during the awake state. What if the "unconscious" is actually an altered state of consciousness? Wouldn't it be innapropriate to call it subconscious just because we don't experience it when we're awake? What if we have a world as large as our conscious world when we're asleep?
But why would I say that?
I mean...our brain is more active (from what we've measured) when we're asleep. Which is really confusing. Wouldn't our Consciousness have priority???
These things are confusing.
And the collective unconscious is even more confusing... I read that a long time ago and didn't understand shit
The subconscious has some practical uses...like in therapy...telling people their behavioral patterns...but seriously...we can't measure anything in it...it just seems one big web of inter connected stuff...one big blob.
In order to get a better picture of the subconscious, we need to understand sleep. Not just how it happens, but why it happens. We need to know if our minds actually store the stuff that happens throughout our lifetimes...or throws away permanently most of the stuff.
It's not the "how" that's hard to understand ...it's the why.
The reason for having a subconscious is quite obvious...it's like in windows when not all of your stuff appears as it's working...who would buy windows if you would see all the source code on the screen? It would be ineffective. You need a user friendly interface
