Psychologically speaking the human mind can be divided into two complimentary parts. These parts have been called the conscious mind and the subconscious mind.
The Conscious Mind operates linearly, seeks to quickly define any undefined element, and can only handle one thought at a time. The conscious mind can momentarily store whatever data that you receive from your senses: sights, sounds, smells, touch, tastes, words, etc.
While the conscious mind operates linearly, the subconscious mind operates nonlinearly and has the capacity to record information without considering temporal dynamics such as past, present, or future. The subconscious mind does not distinguish between past, present, or future. The subconscious mind interprets all things including information or messages that are transmitted below the normal auditory and visual perceptions of the conscious mind. The subconscious mind is analogous to a recording device that operates 24 hours a day and has the capacity to record every word, every image, every message, every sound, every experience, every emotion, every thought, and every event that an individual has experienced throughout its life
