Their disturbing and sometimes symbolic explanations of their unconscious thoughts launched his study into dreams. He concluded that when you are awake, the desires of the id are suppressed by your superego. Through dreams you get a glimpse into your unconscious. Because your body is relaxed, your mind can run wild. Your unconscious takes the opportunity to act out the hidden impulses of the id.
This is a subsystem of the waking default network, which is active during mind unsettling and daydreaming. Dreaming could also be seen as emotional duplication of real life experiences in one's life. Another possible reasoning for why we dream is because dreams are highly essential reflections of unconscious mental functioning. With an experience of the present, processing of the past, and arrangement for the future, are uncommon state of consciousness that incorporates
Freud says” In order to deal with problems and conflict in life ,the ego consumes a variety of different defense mechanisms. These defense mechanisms work at an unconscious level and make good things feel better for the person. A few examples of defense mechanisms are Repression which is burying something like a horrible feeling from your awareness this can sometimes be considered as a basis of other defense mechanisms, Denial is another defense mechanism which would be not accepting reality because it is too painful to come to terms with it and a final example would be Regression this would be like regressing back to an earlier age in life, a less mature way of dealing with certain feelings or
Relationship: This refers to the qualities of a given relationship taken as a form of communication. For example, if I provide criticism to someone while consciously taking care to provide it in a loving way, then the content of the message is auditory but the message of the feeling tone is in the relationship channel. Relationship troubles often occur when the people are aware of the content but not aware of the relationship channel. In this case, the relationship channel is said to be “unoccupied,” which actually means that it is occupied by the secondary process. 6.
First of all, lack of empirical evidence is one of the major flaw in his psychosexual theory. The proposals of the stages were mainly based on his personal experiences, and even though his theory was focusing on childhood development, he did not really experiment on children. Secondly, cultural difference is a big consideration that he did not notice. There is no evidence to show that his theory applies to every ethnic group. Lastly, Freud’s psychosexual theory was strongly criticized by opposite gender- female.
Moreover, he claims that he has mental images about the external world and explains how he gets those images when he doesn’t have a body or senses. He is a thinking thing, which has an ability to form mental images, and gain wisdom about the outer world through senses. But since, he assumes that he is in a dream all of his senses are falsified so, he just thinks that he sense those things and concludes that sensing is just thinking. He later continue with the physical objects and their reality, he takes a wax as an example because taking a general concept
Although these dreams occur while we are falling asleep, they interpret a completely different meaning. Falling can mean you are insecure, you are losing grip, or you simply have fears that need to be faced. There are many interesting facts about dream such as when dream occurs, theories of dream and what they mean. Dream interpretation is important for everyone because being able to analyze the information in your own dreams can allow you to solve problems in reality. Understanding when dream occurs, theories of dream and what they
A paradox is a sentence or statement that contains 2 contrasting/ opposite ideas, such as waking and sleeping. One cannot be sleeping when they are awake. If we take this in its literal sense, it can be said to be circular… just like how you can travel as far west as you can to reach the east. Another paradox in the first stanza is “I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.” This is also another circular form or content in the poem. Normally, we take fear in what we don’t know, like fate, because it is unknown, which can’t be felt or anticipated.
I think we want to blindly believe that the unconscious has little to do with our actions but I believe we are wrong. The unconscious mind has much more power over us than the credit we give it. John Searle “argues that an unconscious mental state is one that in principle could become conscious he calls this the “Connection Principle”... and the notion of an unconscious intentional state is the notion of a state that is a possible conscious thought or experience”. The connection principle is an excellent way to label this issue. There is differently a connection between the unconscious and conscious and it affects the way we live our lives and how we treat people.
Similiarly, though a literary text or a poem may bot speak of real events, it is still based on experiences and the authors own conscious that he bestows upon the character. Dreams and Literature are both different means of exploration of one’s own internal thoughts, fantasies and fears. And while the poet translates his own experiences into words for a poem, a psychotherapist relies solely on the patient’s own account for his therapy. Both dreams and poetry have multiple layers that require further delving to completely understand, even if they might seem outrightly obvious. The narrative of some poetry, including TLS is very similar to the unfolding of a session of psychoanalysis.
