Explicitly. I know this sounds weird, but what I am talking about is the fact that what we do consciously is the very same thing as what we don’t do.
It’s a bit of a catch-22, but the general conclusion is that we all have certain things in our minds that we don’t consciously know about. For example, I am aware that I am attracted to women. I know this intellectually, but I also feel this about some women, so I feel like I am attracted to them, but I don’t act on this conscious knowledge.
That same general conclusion is reached when it comes to the things we intentionally do consciously. For example, I intentionally go to the beach every day. I consciously know that I am attracted to women, but I also feel attraction in areas other than the beach. Thats why I feel attracted to women, but I dont act on this consciously.
I could easily write a post on this. The fact that I feel attraction towards a woman (when I am in the same room with her, but not necessarily physical proximity to her) is not the same thing as consciously knowing I am attracted to her, and I could easily write a post explaining that feeling of attraction. The way we feel attraction is not the same as the way we intentionally act on it (like consciously knowing we are attracted to a woman).
This is the part I get confused about. I feel attraction towards a woman when I am in the same room with her, but not necessarily physical proximity to her. I suppose that this is different than feeling attraction towards a woman, because the latter is a conscious thought process.
It’s like the difference between a guy who can’t get a girl to sleep with him and a girl who can’t sleep with a guy. The point is that it’s an attraction that can be consciously thought about, but it’s not a physical action that we choose to do. It happens because we are attracted to someone or something, not because it’s consciously planned.
There’s also the fact that we’re all just naturally attracted to other people like ourselves. When we see a girl in a swimsuit, say, we’re attracted to her body and also think she’ll be good for the boys. When we’re at a bar, we’re attracted to the men there, because we want to feel safe and protected.
I think it is because we all have a subconscious desire to feel safe. If you were to tell me that we only consciously decided to be attracted to men, I would probably say something along the lines of, “Nope! You’re just making that up.
This is one of those things that’s very easy to miss, especially when you’re talking about the subconscious. There are so many things that happen when you’re not consciously aware of these things. It can be as simple as you feel like you’re being watched, or you start to feel uncomfortable around the opposite sex. It’s as easy as that, and it’s something that I’m very conscious of.
It’s not your fault. You either get bored with being watched or get bored with being watched. But when you’re not aware of the fact that its an important thing, then its very easy to miss its importance.
