Subconscious Phenomena


Been researching the subconscious and lying for a book. There is lots and lots out there. But this is a little gem from a paper written in 1910 is really something. Interesting how more than a century later, the subconscious mind remains such a mystery.

Subconscious ideas are dissociated or split off ideas split off from the main personal consciousness from the focus of attention if that term be preferred in such fashion that the subject is entirely unaware of them though they are not inert but active These split off ideas may be limited to isolated sensations like the lost tactile sensations of anesthesia or may be aggregated into groups or systems In other words they form a consciousness coexisting with the primary consciousness and thereby a doubling of consciousness results The split off consciousness may display extraordinary activity.
