The notion of levels of unconsciousness, along with your cogent arguments convince me about the freer capacity of unconscious thought. I too think that there are different layers to the unconscious and find that people differ in their capacity to have access to their unconscious process. I wonder what are the many factors that go into the determining factors for this? Of course some would be psychological but I also wonder if there are physiological hard wired factors? I personally feel aware of thoughts coming in and out of consciousness regularly. I think it is part of what people say when they refer to having an intuition about something , or just knowing something without realizing how or why they know it. For some it is a coping style related to vigilance. It is also, I think, a major skill required to be a good therapist.
I hope Doug does discussion "how the perception of the therapist emerges in dreams and how patients wish to communicate these images to the therapist".
