I can't quote Dr. Erickson direcly, but I heard a recording in which this phenomenon was discussed. Dr. Erickson talks about the 'patient' which could mean his client Harvey, or the person listening to him talk about Harvey. He makes the point quite clear that, in order for something to be truly 'known', there has to be an integration of unconscious learnings with conscious ones. Perhaps this is one of the reasons that Dr. Erickson often sent his clients to perform certain tasks... so that they could physically as well as mentally 'know' that they had done something to correct the problem they were having and experience an integration of learning.
