The Functions of the Unconscious and Conscious State of Mind against Perception

82000 Perception and the conscious-unconscious nature of mind are directly related to each other. Perception is driven by the unconscious and conscious observance. For decades, all human processes were thought to be of conscious nature. only recently have scientists begun to understand the unconscious mind. Over the decades, the term “unconscious” has been defined as unintentional thoughts/actions. The things we do consciously are influenced by the unconscious mind – our actions are the effects of stimuli that we are unaware of. There have been various interpretations in this regard. According to cognitive psychology, unconscious information processing likened to subliminal message processing (idea opposed by authors because they thought the definition was unnatural and restrictive). (09No)In Evolution: evolutionary changes occurred as a result of unconscious processes – there was no conscious thought that went into evolution and adaptation. For example, things like culture and early learning – we don’t think about our culture – we are surrounded by it from an early age and information gets stored in our unconscious mind without our being aware of it – it is inherent.&nbsp. Same with Early Learning – we learn lots of things at a very young age, which are inherent traits of humankind, which we again, don’t consciously think about (for instance, kids, especially infants, learn behavior by “passive imitation” of parents or friends. as infants we unconsciously learn by experience – as we grow up, those learned behaviors/actions/values stay with us, and are stored in the unconscious mind – later in life, we don’t consciously think about these things – we just know them to be true)All these characteristics have been oft associated with conscious goal pursuits for quite some time. There is a distinct line between conscious and unconscious goal pursuit. Keeping in perspective the recent evolutionary arrival of modes of thought and behavior, it is probably that the conscious goal is directly or indirectly related to unconscious motivational structures.
