Subconscious: consciousness and unconscious
What does the unconscious hide? Secrets of past lives or the memory of every second lived in this one? Something that we ourselves do not want or are afraid to know about ourselves? Or does the subconscious store tons of invaluable information about our mental state in the same way that the genome owns the code of the physiology of our body?
What does the unconscious hide? Secrets of past lives or the memory of every second lived in this one? Something that we ourselves do not want or are afraid to know about ourselves and our unconscious? Or does the subconscious store tons of invaluable information about our mental state in the same way that the genome owns the code of the physiology of our body? To comprehend the unconscious humanity has been striving since the distant times of Plato. For many centuries, scientists, philosophers, psychologists have been trying to distinguish between consciousness and the unconscious, or at least define what it is? However, no definitions are found. Why does the unconscious continue to hide in the subconscious? Where is this transition from consciousness to the unconscious hidden from us and is it possible?
And as before, the subconscious seems to be something truly incomprehensible, mysterious and, perhaps, omnipotent, giving an answer to any conscious question - it is not for nothing that it is called unconscious! But the most important question remains - how to reveal this secret, how to make the unconscious conscious, how can people use all that is hidden in themselves? How does the collective subconscious compare to our personal unconscious? What is our “I” and how is it interconnected with the billions of others, even more incomprehensible for us “I” of other people, who are likewise lost somewhere in the unconscious? System-vector psychology brings together consciousness and the unconscious, making it clear what is hidden from us and allowing us to take control of everything that moves a person from the depths of the psyche.
Consciousness and subconsciousness. Let's reveal the secrets
Man lives according to one natural principle - the principle of pleasure. Regardless of any differences between people, everyone wants one thing (and for this there is no need to look into the unconscious) - to receive good for themselves and not to receive bad. In this simple desire lies the whole nature of man. People are united by common for everyone, basic desires and needs - to drink, eat, sleep, breathe … And the main thing is to survive. Survive at all costs. Conscious and unconscious force us to survive and continue ourselves in time, that is, to give offspring, a new life. We deliberately flee death and cling to life. But why is this life given to people? We live this life, we want to get pleasure from it, but what kind? These answers are hidden by the unconscious.
In this we are no longer equal with each other: everyone has different desires for pleasure, everyone sees pleasure in their own way - the way the unconscious sets it. And we also perceive the world differently. For example, vivid impressions, colorful pictures and memorable images affect the subconscious of not every person - one is impressed and dreams, while the other remains indifferent - this is the mystery of the unconscious. And so in everything - because in the unconscious of everyone there are various desires that we strive to fulfill throughout our life, and, accordingly, we are given different properties that ensure the fulfillment of these desires.
If the unconscious sets before human society a common collective task - to survive, then each individual person is faced with a particular task, also coming from the unconscious, - to make its own contribution to the fulfillment of this common task, to play its role in the movement of a single whole. How this is ensured, what is our consciousness and unconsciousness in this process, as nature conceived for the harmonious and unerring action of a multitude of separate "I" - only the unconscious knows.
System-vector psychology is a psychology about the unconscious. It defines a person through his unconscious desires. Desires are the very basis that makes up the personality, they, in fact, are our subconscious and a thin thread to the unconscious. Each "I" is a set of desires in the subconscious, the realization of which brings pleasure. This set of desires constitutes a natural species role, which is embedded in the human unconscious to fulfill its function, to ensure the implementation of the collective task of survival.
All this is an ideal, well-oiled system of human interaction with the outside world, the intricacies of the conscious and the unconscious, when we do not just follow the desires from the subconscious that lead us nowhere: we enjoy the realization of our desire coming from the unconscious, but realizing it, we perform the necessary function, which is important for the survival of the entire society. This is how the unconscious guides us.
Where is the guarantee that our unconscious desires can be embodied in reality and we can fulfill the task assigned to us by nature? How does the unconscious control this process? The physical and mental are inextricably linked, any of our unconscious desire is supported by the necessary properties, one does not exist without the other. This is how the unconscious works. For example, at the very dawn of mankind, the primitive flock needed a person, whose unconscious forced him to monitor the environment and, having noticed the danger, warn about it in time. Naturally, such a person turned out to be the owner of the best vision - that is, the visual vector, the visual erogenous zone (in terms of system-vector psychology). The role of warning about danger, given to the unconscious, was performed by it not becausethat he was specially assigned to him by someone, but because he enjoyed initiating the visual erogenous zone by observing the world around him: his subconsciousness, his desire by itself pushed him to perform this important task. Conscious and unconscious have acted and are acting without failure, you just need to understand the mechanism of its action.
In a similar way, humanity exists today, the unconscious continues to guide us with the only difference that over the entire period of our existence we have incredibly developed and complicated the world around us, and it, in turn, has complicated us, our interaction with each other, ways of realizing desires and our unconscious. If in primitive times the owner of the skin vector saved food supplies, because the unconscious ruled him that way, today skin engineers save time and space, creating all the benefits of civilization - telephones, airplanes and computers.
If everything is so simple, then why does our unconscious not by itself lead everyone to happiness from the realization and fulfillment of their unconscious desires? The psychology of the unconscious also answers this question.
Consciousness and subconsciousness live in a person according to the principle "given, but not provided." Inherent in the unconscious will not necessarily be involved. Yes, our desires are supported by all the necessary properties, physical and mental, in order to realize them. But these properties require development, a lot of work, considerable mental effort in order to achieve the desired. And the unconscious does not help us in this, because it is hidden from us.
The degree of fulfillment of desire, both conscious and unconscious, fluctuates colossally from more to less: the more developed we are, the more contribution we can make to the development of the common, the more pleasure our unconscious will give us for this. This is another ingenious idea of nature, which can be revealed only by knowing the unconscious. We get more pleasure from the greatest return from us outward, while with insufficient development of our properties, although we can get a share of pleasure for ourselves, nevertheless, this will never be enough to feel a full sense of joy and satisfaction from life. The psychology of the unconscious will help you understand this and act, getting the most out of life.
Our nature, our conscious and unconscious are always pushing us to more and more development, we are always in pursuit of great pleasure. We can see the results of this pursuit in all the achievements of mankind: from the invention of the wheel to the creation of spaceships, from the very first philosophical discussions about the nature of things to the theory of relativity. Aspirations coming from the unconscious help us develop.
So what's the problem? Why, if everything is given to a person, initially everything is inherent in the subconscious and all that remains is to take - why is it so difficult to do this, to get the necessary information from the unconscious? The problem is that consciousness and subconsciousness are not intertwined, it is impossible in the first to distinguish between the real motives of actions and desires, to which the second pushes us.
We understand our conscious desires - to understand the rest, it is necessary to study the psychology of the unconscious. What can a person answer to the question - what do you want? Everyone can name different things - who is hungry for money, who is respect, who is love, who is glory, who is spiritual advancement - the unconscious determines the path of anyone … Despite the particular differences, all the diversity of desires, the collective unconscious is connected in one general direction - this is the desire to be happy. What is happiness? How can this desire be explained consciously? What are our properties ensured the realization of this simple desire coming from the subconscious - to be happy?
The answers are still in the unconscious. Everyone understands happiness in different ways, depending on the set of unconscious desires set by nature, desperately requiring realization. Both the skinner and the visual person want "money and love", but they will realize these desires by different properties that the psychology of the unconscious reveals. And rash advice from one will not help another if the ability to implement them is not in his unconscious.
System-vector psychology differentiates eight conditional character types, eight vectors, eight desires and reveals the treasures of the unconscious hidden in the subconscious: eight ways to be happy, revealing your unconscious, and makes it possible to realize which path is right for you.
