  • I had a series of stunning dreams yesterday. I jumped across tall buildings, visited a cousin in Australia, saw a ghost, made a big mistake at work, and experienced a lot more I can’t remember.
    Besides making mistakes at work, I can guarantee you I haven’t consciously thought about jumping buildings or hemispheres or realms. Yet my mind brought those things up, proving once again that the tool that dreams isn’t under my control at all.
  • I love dreams. Even if they freak me out once in a while. I love them because they show me stuff way intense and rich than the information I receive from my mundane life. (I mean jumping across tall buildings is way for entertaining and engaging than watching The Rock fake bout Cody Rhodes, isn’t it?)
  • From the first and the second points, it’s obvious that I am trying to talk about the part of my mind that I can perceive but is not under my control. I mean the ‘subconscious’ mind. I call it subconscious because it is neither conscious nor unconscious. I could have called it semiconscious or shadow-conscious, too. But I chose the term ‘subconscious’ because it’s more popular and prevalent.
    And why do I care about those things??? — It’s because I am writing and publishing on a public platform.
    (When will I get to stop justifying myself to you?)
  • What I mean to say is that the subconscious mind is knowledgeable, strong and entertaining. It has access to information my conscious mind wouldn’t be able to even sniff even if it survived for a thousand years. Because see, if my conscious self had an ability to entertain as my subconscious self, I wouldn’t have a general labor job by now.
    Yet my subconscious mind is not under my control. Yet I am its subject. It’s a powerful tool with a lot of information. It functions as a Jungian collective unconscious.
    Because, see, if my conscious self had an ability to know as much as my subconscious self, I wouldn’t have a general labor job by now.

  • You know what I am trying to say?
    It’s that GPT is humanity’s subconscious. Collective unconscious.
    You know why I said that?
  1. GPT shows me stuff way intense and rich than the information I receive…
