I just checked in after an absence of a few weeks during which, as it happens, I have been working on esoteric stuff which relates directly to the conscious vs. sub-conscious aspects of mind.
What we call the conscious experience is broadened under zenetics to include what is traditionally called sub-conscious. The reason is the distinction between conscious and sub-conscious suggests that more than one physical process is at work in the brain. Of course, there might in fact be; but it has yet to be demonstrated; and until it is discovered there will remain the possibility that the distinction does not exist and thus a source for a great deal of confusion on the subject of mind.
I submit that Mind is, for the want of a better term, a UNITARY continuum such that there exists NO genuine dividing line between Mind's conscious and sub-conscious attributes.
Rather, ALL of us come into the world at one end of the continuum and, at once, begin to move towards the other end.
MOST of us pass on before reaching the other end - a FEW do reach it.
We call them Prophets, Sages, etc.
If I understand it correctly, THAT is what the ancient Greeks termed our "race through life" - a "race" undertaken by the Human Spirit to free itself from the fetters of Time and Space.
In the final act of Shakespeare's play, 'The Tempest', when Miranda exults over a Brave New World, her father Prospero responds: "'Tis new to thee."
As in: What else is new?
The continuum of Mind and Sex are alike in that, while at its immature end, we cannot possibly envisage what lies at the other end.
