Subconscious Mind - How I See It
What is the Subconscious Mind?
What is the subconscious mind? I see this question more and more on various forums.
I imagine our mind as a whole, like a great area where information is stored, and processed. In my hallucination, everything we experience is recorded. Even things that we are not aware of, things like background noise, objects and scenery in our peripheral. I see the mind separated by a kind of mental firewall. Our focus is the gateway between the two great areas of conscious and unconscious mind. We can focus on the exterior world around us, or turn our focus inward and draw from information we have stored.

I think when we focus on something in the exterior, we record the information differently. We are conscious of what we focus on in the present. It’s like our focus has caused a direct pathway, charged with vitality, to connect with, and index information stored in the mind. Because the information is linked by a charged pathway, we can easily reach back and draw upon it.
The strength of the vitality, that charges the pathway, to the stored information, is governed by our emotions. Whenever an emotion is associated with information, the information is charged. The charged information leaves a kind of trail, or series of links back to it. The stronger the emotion, the stronger the trail.
All the other information is still there. It is the subconscious. It is like the sum total of all the information each of us has gathered during our lifetime. It is not only the information we have gathered through our senses, but all the information that our own creative thoughts have processed.
I believe the subconscious also includes hereditary information; like programming for body functions such as our heart beat and breathing, reflexive action, our immune system, and tons of other processes needed to keep us alive. These programs are like informational scripts that run without our knowledge. They have been altered by each generation, and passed down to each of us by our ancestors.
So, what is the subconscious mind? I see it as a warehouse of information. It is a sea of information so vast, that no man-made computer hard-drive could hold it. It is a detailed record of our lives; although one with a poor index in most cases. It holds the blueprint for how we are built. It has recorded within it every single one of our experiences filtered by our own unique set of filters.
