The "Conscious / Unconscious"
Some Thoughts

"Consciousness poses the most baffling problems in the science of the mind. There is nothing that we know more intimately than conscious experience, but there is nothing that is harder to explain. All sorts of mental phenomena have yielded to scientific investigation in recent years, but consciousness has stubbornly resisted" (Chalmers, 1995).

A significant problem of the 'conscious' mind was voiced by Bertrand Russell: "Most people would rather die than think; in fact, they do so."

A major result of our socialization was described many decades ago by Wilhelm Reich who, like Freud and others, had realized a very important human reality given their personal and professional experiences with psychoanalysis as a Knowing / Understanding of Self endeavor:

You think you can determine your actions with free will? Far from it! Your conscious action is only a drop on the surface of the sea of unconscious process, of which you can know nothing about which, indeed, you are afraid to know (Reich, 1948: 33).
It would therefore seem that "conscious" people - or the "normal" ones - have always been unconscious, meaning that true consciousness may only be possible if one's "unconscious" was made conscious again (See: Chalmers, 1995). A part of that "unconscious" also includes all(?) of the Self WE had before "infantile amnesia" became an attribute of our psyche, the implications being that becoming "as a child again" may be required to be fully conscious, or whole as we once were. (Tremblay, 1999)

Have we therefore been doing was Buckminster Fuller recognized as a part of his reflections on his own genius status? The child has everything needed to be "a genius," but that almost all children are "degeniused" as the result of education / socialization? (Buckminster Fuller & Kiyoshi Kuromiya, 1992: p. 37)

Note: Kiyoshi Kuromiya was gay and died on May 10, 2000. Indications are that both Kiyoshi and Bucky, as well as Jung and others, have been in what I have called "The Save the World Kids" category. See Tremblay (1997-2000) and other related web pages.
