Taking a Walk Through The Mind by philoedu(m): 2:21pm On Mar 23
This write-up is just to have an idea of how our mind works and here it goes. There seems to be three major parts of the mind that connects and operate to work together to create our individual reality. These three minds are known to be- (a) Conscious mind (b) Subconscious mind and (c) Unconscious mind and they are seen as the three level of the mind, of which Sigmund Freud, the famous Austria psychoanalyst was probably the first to popularized into main stream society as it come to be known today.

However, S. Freud tends to be the one who create the useful model of our mind into three tier or section, through the concept of triangular illustration for easy understanding. According to the triangular illustration, at the upper end is our Conscious mind, that occupies a portion at the top of the triangle, like an iceberg with a fraction of it showing above the water, represents just about 10% of our brain capacity. The question is, what is our Conscious mind is all about, and the answer to that, is that it is the part of our mind that people often associate with who we are, and which is responsible for our logic and reasoning. The reason is clear, the unconscious mind, could not reason clearly like the conscious mind.

It is in the Conscious mind that most people live on daily bases, because it is where all our action takes place. Such voluntary action as in our communication to the outside world and our inner self through speech, physical movement, thought and writing. The same is true, that unconscious mind can only communicate to the conscious mind through the subconscious to provide us with the meaning of our interaction with the outside world.

The Subconscious mind being responsible for our involuntary actions, like our breathing rate, heart beats, and the store house of our belief, memory and past experiences, filtered in the subconscious mind, the like of our belief, habit and behavior formed before reaching out to the conscious mind. Our Unconscious mind cannot take control of any of our actions, like the conscious mind does, hence, the Conscious mind act as the gate keeper of the mind.

[b][/b] And when someone tried to tell us we are “dumb” our conscious mind will intervene through reasoning and filter the statement, if we are really dumb or not. The same is true, when you are been criticized and called names . But the Subconscious mind only communicates through our feeling and emotion, imagination and sensation and dreams to the conscious mind after these concepts has been filtered.

Therefore, the Unconscious mind communicates to the conscious through the subconscious which is larger than the conscious and account to about 50-60% of the brain capacity. The section below the triangle, is the width of the base of the triangle of the Unconscious mind that fill out 30-40% of the bran capacity, which is however deep and largely inaccessible to our conscious thought, which is a bit like an ocean dept.

On how the subconscious mind affect our behavior, S. Freud, will made us to understand that, this is due to the fact that, the unconscious mind continues to influence our behavior, and experiences, without our least awareness. Therefore, being unconscious can include a repressed feelings, hidden memories, habit and reaction and desires under the control of the subconscious that operate without our awareness and which we do not even have control.

For the fact that our emotion are controlled by the subconscious mind, becomes one of the reason we might sometime be afraid, anxious and down cast simply because we are unwilling to experience such feeling. And also because they are still under processing in the store house of the subconscious before communicating to the conscious mind for the revelation of the reality of things.
