Is it commonly accepted that in RV, the Prime-consciousness
(subconscious)is what has access to the RV data?
From what I have read, that seems to be the current theory.
I know in our waking consciousness, we can relate objects, events and
sensations one-to-another. We'd call that daisy-chaining of mental
objects/concepts our "stream of consciousness". The "water" in
that "stream", if you will forgive my dissecting this metaphor, is
the practical, waking need to associate mental concepts to achieve
some biological goal. To move around and function in this material
world, we need to be able to associate concepts via their shared
But when psychologists study your "stream of consciousness" to
discover aspects of your psyche, aren't they actually looking at the
connections your Prime-consciousness exhibits? Do the two streams
overlap? And what is the "water" in the stream of the Prime-
It seems that in dreams, or in hypnagogic experiences, there are
different but consistant associations of concepts than those of the
waking mind. When we "free associate", we are making
associations "free" of the waking consciousness' connections, and
only looking at the prime-consciousness' connections.
MY POINT....then... is to ask, Do the two streams interact? What is
the water in the Prime-consciousness' "stream of consciousness"?
