Default Re: Our unconscious mind

Peter Watts wrote a brilliant work of science fiction that’s all about the unconscious mind and how almost everything everybody does is below the level of consciousness.

Of course, that’s not the plot. The story is about first contact (with the weirdest aliens you’ve never imagined), but he’s constantly having the characters discuss what may or may not be consciously controlled.

Absolutely riveting reading if you’re into understanding the stuff we’re chatting about in this thread.
