In this week's REDMOND'S REVIEW, Darren shares his thoughts on CS Lewis's book, "Spirits in Bondage A Cycle of Lyrics."

Subconscious and superconscious planes of mind are the subjects of REDMOND’S REVIEW this week.


Written in 2017, “The Subconscious and Superconscious Planes of Mind” authored by William Walker Atkinson is wonderfully referenced by me as a genre that can be confidently titled, “rabbit hole reading”. This label is given by me to books or subject matter that does two things simultaneously. First, time seems not to exist in its normal fashion. Firstly, an hour could feel like 15 minutes when you are one with the books subject matter. Secondly, the book for me at least, led to search engine escapades for follow up and ancillary information.

In the most simplest of ways I could explain it, The book reviews and investigates our conscious and how it tends to operate and perform. Then, it dwells into the always murky but interesting subconscious. The author goes into great detail giving example after example of how our subconscious, to use a Wizard of Oz reference, is the “person behind the curtain.” Both passively and many times not so passively, it is controlling or “convincing” us to act or not act in a certain way. Atkinson then spends time in a logical and scholarly way, raising the question, do we ever really forget anything? Or, do we file it away in a place that is controlled normally by our subconscious?


What I really found interesting was the hypothesis regarding the superconscious. Could it be that a third level of consciousness exists? That it is actually arranged in such a way that much like DNA, we are passed down from our relatives, thoughts or impressions from the past are stored there? An example of this could be a great great grandparent, who walked into a room and had an emotional or deeply inquisitive impression, positively or negatively, that was “branded” (my word) into their Superconscious. Now, you forty or fifty decades later, walk into a similar room and suddenly have a sense of Déjà vu. Could that be the Superconscious at work? This book was what “rabbit hole reading” is all about.
