Over the years, we have heard hypnotists tell us and even demonstrate the power of the subconscious mind in front of live audiences. Then we began hearing motivational speakers talk about how it is our inner minds that are driving our actions and thoughts. We also heard from psychologists talk about the remarkable power of the subconscious mind – as did Sigmund Freud.
The latest confirmation of how reality is driven by our subconscious minds comes from the world of neuroscience. Research indicates that what we have always believed to be objective reality in the world around was actually created by our subconscious minds. David Eagleman, the man who filmed and created PBS documentary during the year 2015 that was entitle “inner cosmos,” commented:
“Neuroscience has drifted off a little bit from the directions that Freud was going in terms of the interpretations of whether your unconscious mind is sending you particular hidden signals and so on. But the idea that there’s this massive amount happening under the hood, that part was correct and so Freud really nailed that. And he lived before the blossoming of modern neuroscience, so he was able to do this just by outside observation and looking at how people acted.
Nowadays, we’re able to peer noninvasively inside people’s heads as they’re doing tasks, as they’re thinking about things and making decisions, perceiving the world. We’re able to go a lot deeper into understanding this massive machinery under the hood.”
Obviously, in the near future, we are going to learn many new facts as to how our mind operates as it perceives the world around us. Understanding this process will reveal secrets about how we think that has been a mystery throughout the history of all mankind.
