Bessel van der Kolk
“As long as you keep secrets and suppress information, you are fundamentally at war with yourself…The critical issue is allowing yourself to know what you know. That takes an enormous amount of courage.”
Bessel A. van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma

Sigmund Freud
“Properly speaking, the unconscious is the real psychic; its inner nature is just as unknown to us as the reality of the external world, and it is just as imperfectly reported to us through the data of consciousness as is the external world through the indications of our sensory organs.”
Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams

Sigmund Freud
“The interpretation of Dreams is the royal road to a knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind”

Eoin Colfer, The Atlantis Complex

Emily Dickinson
“One need not be a chamber to be haunted,
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
Material place.

Far safer, of a midnight meeting
External ghost,
Than an interior confronting
That whiter host.

Far safer through an Abbey gallop,
The stones achase,
Than, moonless, one's own self encounter
In lonesome place.

Ourself, behind ourself concealed,
Should startle most;
Assassin, hid in our apartment,
Be horror's least.

The prudent carries a revolver,
He bolts the door,
O'erlooking a superior spectre
More near.”
Emily Dickinson, The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson

Erik Pevernagie
“Ignorance is killing poison. When people do not communicate, they are doomed to remain ignorant. If people do not get together and share views and exchange ideas, they remain unconscious and unaware. A world without dialogue is a universe of darkness. (“Because the world had corona”)”
Erik Pevernagie

Stefan Molyneux
“If the sound of happy children is grating on your ears, I don't think it's the children who need to be adjusted.”

“If I know better than you know what I am up to, it is only because I spend more time with myself than you do.”
Daniel C. Dennett, Freedom Evolves

Daniel J. Siegel
“Our dreams and stories may contain implicit aspects of our lives even without our awareness. In fact, storytelling may be a primary way in which we can linguistically communicate to others—as well as to ourselves—the sometimes hidden contents of our implicitly remembering minds. Stories make available perspectives on the emotional themes of our implicit memory that may otherwise be consciously unavailable to us. This may be one reason why journal writing and intimate communication with others, which are so often narrative processes, have such powerful organizing effects on the mind: They allow us to modulate our emotions and make sense of the world.”
Daniel J. Siegel, The Developing Mind: How Relationships and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are

Criss Jami
“Seemingly minor yet persistent things penetrate the mind over time making it difficult to ever realize the impact; hence, though quite unfortunate, the most dangerous forms of corruption are those that are subtle and below the radar.”
Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile

George Orwell
“Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.”
George Orwell, 1984

Viktor E. Frankl

Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Ultimate Meaning

Alain de Botton
“Intuition is unconscious accumulated experience informing judgement in real time.”
Alain de Botton

Stefan Molyneux
“Baseless victimhood is usually the last stage before outright aggression.”
Stefan Molyneux

“The river in front of her was black. She thought it contained many things.”
Gisele Prassinos

Anthon St. Maarten
“A misleading perception or false belief is increasingly being perpetuated that the unconscious or the intuitive is all that really matters in any spiritual endeavor, and that the conscious, rational, logical, analytical mind is the mortal enemy of spiritual awareness and soul growth.”
Anthon St. Maarten, Divine Living: The Essential Guide To Your True Destiny

Milton H. Erickson
“I am very confident. I look confident. I act confident. I speak in a confident way...”
Milton Erickson

Fredric Jameson
“Žižek seems to have got Hitchcock out of his system, if not out of his unconscious—one never does that.”
Fredric Jameson

Dianna Hardy
“It took Pueblo a few seconds to take in his surroundings. The first thing he realised was that he felt bruised all over; the second was that his clothes were waterlogged, even more than before, from the quicksand; and the third, was that he had landed on his front and was lying on a large, uncomfortable stone.

No, wait… In his disoriented state, he shifted his weight. The stone didn't move. He was lying on his own fucking erection.”
Dianna Hardy, The Sands Of Time

Sigmund Freud
“Here libido and ego-interest share the same fate and have once more become indistinguishable from each other. The familiar egoism of the sick person covers them both. We find it so natural because we are certain that in the same situation we should behave in just the same way. The way in which the readiness to love, however great, is banished by bodily ailments, and suddenly replaced by complete indifference, is a theme which has been sufficiently exploited by comic writers.”
Sigmund Freud, General Psychological Theory

Richard  Adams
“Plot as such is not a major ingredient in my novels... it's often better to sail on the unconscious sea.”
Richard Adams

Toba Beta
“The gamecock proudly stepped into the slaughterhouse.”
Toba Beta, Master of Stupidity

Walter de la Mare
“Thinking is like a fountain. Once it gets going at a certain pressure, well, it almost impossible to turn it off. And, my hat! what odd things come up with the water!

("Out Of The Deep")”
Walter de la Mare, Great Tales of Terror and the Supernatural

Peter Redgrove
“In fact, unconscious scanning goes on all the time. It seems more than ever that what we know as the visionary or poetic mode is our response via the unconscious senses to what is really there in the environment. We are not trying to 'explain it away': it is rather that we symbolize this kind of awareness.”
Peter Redgrove, The Black Goddess and the Unseen Real: Our Uncommon Senses and Their Common Sense

Toba Beta
“Bukan doa orang lain yang membuat anda sukses atau gagal,
tapi karena anda telah mengaminkannya, sadar atau tak sadar.”
Toba Beta, Master of Stupidity

Terence McKenna
“We cannot afford the continued existence of the unconscious. It is a neurotic excuse for not getting our act together as a species. The way in which the unconscious is eliminated is by turning the language machinery back upon itself and reflecting on the process of attention. This is what Buddhism is all about; attention to attention. Awareness of the modality of the cognitive process. Doing that to oneself has a kind of morphogenetic field effect, a kind of chain-reaction which sweeps through society. It's simply that the act of conscious self-inspection creates more conscious people which creates a more conscious society, which erodes the possibility of the poisonous and toxic effects of ideology.”
Terence McKenna

Bessel van der Kolk
“Desensitization to our own or to other people's pain tends to lead to an overall blunting of emotional sensitivity”
Bessel van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma

“We should understand that dream symbols are for the most part manifestations of a psyche that is beyond the control of the conscious mind. Meaning and purposefulness are not the prerogatives of the mind; they operate in the whole of living nature. There is no difference in principle between organic and psychic growth. As a plant produces its flower, so the psyche creates its symbols. Every dream is evidence of this process.”
Carl G Jung, Man and His Symbols: A Popular Presentation of the Essential Ideas of Jungian Psychology with Over 500 Illustrations

Nozer Kanga
“Free will affords us two fundamental choices: either we can make conscious choices that draw us closer to God; or we can listen to the physical mind instead of the higher mind, make unconscious choices, and alienate our souls from God.”
Nozer Kanga, Living with Consciousness: Everyday Inspirations for Spiritual Growth and Personal Fulfillment
