I do not know if this is a redundant topic, but I was wondering if our subconscious was our memories. People often talk about repitition driving an idea into their mind, i.e. their subconscious. Repitition is also how we learn, how we remember. Our subconscious minds basicly go over what we did and learnt in the past, noticing details we didn't, and making assumptions based on this. When we think on something for days, or weeks, sudden inspiration comes after you stopped actively thinking about it. What is happening is that when you let your subconscious take over it rapidly analyzes everything you know, far faster then your conscious mind could. When it finds the solution, it presents it to you, thus the inspiration. This would make it appear as if subconscious is nothing more then how the brain stores information, that is memory, and how it keeps track of and searches this information. I'm not much of a phycologist, but this seems logical to me. Any thoughts?
