The Inner Conciousness is yet another great book from Atkinson on the subjects of Mental Phenomena, the planes of consciousness, the basements of the mind, forethought and in general, the workings of the mind. It is known, says Atkinson, “that “Inner Conscious” ideas, impressions and thoughts play a most important part in the thought world of every individual. Beyond every outer conscious action there may be found a vast inner conscious background. It is held that of our entire mental processes, less than ten per cent are performed in the field of outer consciousness. As a well-known writer has so well expressed it: “Our self is greater than we know; it has peaks above and lowlands below the plateau of our conscious experience.” Prof. Elmer Gates has forcibly put it: “At least ninety per cent of our mental life is sub conscious. If you will analyze your mental operations you will find that conscious thinking is never a continuous line of consciousness, but a series of conscious data with great intervals of sub consciousness. We sit and try to solve a problem and fail. We walk around, try again and fail. Suddenly an idea dawns that leads to a solution of the problem. The sub conscious processes were at work. We do not volitionally create our own thinking. It takes place in us. We are more or less passive recipients. We cannot change the nature of a thought, or of a truth, but we can, as it were, guide the ship by a moving of the helm.”
