The point of this is to bring a few interesting findings and ideas together and possibly see how experiences may correlate with others who have the common experience. That being said, I'd like to hear your observations of, or thoughtful reply to the subject. It's been about three years since I've taken interest in figuring out the subconscious and since then I've come across a great deal and I'd have to say that thinking about these things when your young with a flexible mind can have it's advantages. When I say "these things", I am referring to how the mind works and relates to itself and the world; the subject of subconscious was just a stepping stone and one of many at that. While I base my theories mainly on personal observation and experience, outside references or context which may explain them better or more fully would also be much appreciated. (Honestly, I would rather have simply cut to the chase, but this is how things usually come out when I start typing, even though I suppose it's appropriate.) There's probably around a hundred things related to the original idea (related to the title) I'd like to discuss, however I guess It would be better that I Just add to it over time (similar to the way the ideas developed in the first place). Someone once mentioned to me that when we think, it takes up a certain amount of 'space' or size of part within our mind in which we are aware (conscious) and that intuition is a function of it's own and requires 'space' in order to work just as thinking does. Now the point of what they were saying was that this particularly function called intuition develops when it is given more opportunity to work. Interestingly enough what this involved was quite literally a ceasing of thinking in order to make room for what was quite a foreign process in that space at the time for me. The function was very difficult to trust because it just jumped to an answer without verification and no visible process to check for error (at least not until I became familiar with it). Instead of figuring something out like usual I would have to let an answer form on it's own. The department switch gave me a chance to look at the function which I wasn't used to seeing and to compare it with my main mode of thought. To make a short note, I seem to be having more ideas go through my head than I've actually put down, I think it's because I spend so long with just one and then try to tie it to the next. A few tidbits of interesting observations: -Observing the mind means the mind observing itself and results in change. Think of it as two mirrors, one the observer, the other the mind -- the more they are directed towards each other, the more distorted the image becomes. -When we do something for a long time and become used to it, there is a tendency to make many parts of the task autonomous. Automation works like assumption, the more there is, the less flexibility and the less possible outcomes. This brings up an interesting comparison of computers and the subconscious. The mind's incredibly complex and there's too many places to go from one idea so I"ll stop here and hear what anyone has to say before going on.
