Example text

1 The phenomena of automatic writing were Mrs. Verrall’s personal products. She carried out a long series of experiments, some 322 in number, upon herself, and obtained as many “consciously” written pieces of script. That she was already accustomed to having her subconscious mental life “tapped,” so to speak, is expressly stated. In 1889–1892 she had recorded and later published a series of observations on herself in crystal gazing. She allowed this faculty to remain dormant, however, until after repeated attempts, she found herself able to produce automatic writing in 1901.

This term he further subdivides into “coconscious,” meaning an active thinking process, and “unconscious,” which is equivalent to unconscious brain thinking, a process which is unaccompanied by consciousness of any sort. The following scheme will make this clear: THE SUBCONSCIOUS 15 attack may be representative of and produced by a dramatic incident in the subject’s life, but which lies unconsciously active’ in the memory, in other words, the patient is unaware of the cause of the convulsion. An unconscious idea, therefore, may be weak and fail to penetrate consciousness or it may be strong and over active (overdetermined).

This artificial reproduction of the unconscious complex is at the basis of all psycho-analysis. So we see that this reproduction may have a beneficial effect because once the complex is discovered it can usually be rendered harmless. If complexes were always present in memory it would be unnecessary to dig for them through psychological methods. But they are not always present in memory; in fact, a complex may be unconscious and lead to a mental dissociation. Dissociated complexes are removed from the censorship of the conscious mind and, therefore, act in an abnormal manner.
