I don't believe the unconscious is a mass of undiscovered repressed antisocial urges. Its just that we don't really have many reliable ways of looking at ourselves deeply and honestly. Therapy can provide more "smoke" because patients are limited by their therapist's ideas and personal development.
Nothing is really hidden from us, but we would rather spend time TALKING about ourselves than EXAMINING ourselves. Buddhists say that when you discover your real self it is composed of NOTHING. The rest is froth and bubbles.
