Kinds of Power 2

"The unconscious is exactly what the word says: what is least conscious because it is most usual, most familiar, most everyday."

Typically, when depth-pyschologists speak of the unconscious, they are referring to the field of awareness that is below the water-line so to speak. What's interesting about Hillmans words here is that the unconscious is also whatever simply ceases to register on our senses because of it's consistent normalcy. Makes you wonder at the work place or at home what is present and either wonderful or destructive that you've ceased to notice.
