I wish I could be that open minded guy, Emily. And honestly, I've acted that way other times before, I mean, in an unbiased-based attitude concerning different events in life. Unfortunately--and just so you think it over--I just can't get any benefit out of watching a film containing scenes which, in the long run(and this should not be the case for every individual in the world..this is just me..Do you understand?) may bring a loathsome aftermath upon me. So, let's try to put my message across accordingly : I have believed in many of the statements made by Sigmund Freud, which may be the principle preventing me from becoming the non-discriminatory guy you meant.Originally Posted by emilyb
In psychoanalysis, the subconscious is the part of the psychic apparatus that does not ordinarily enter the individual's awareness but may be manifested by slips of the tongue,dreams,or neurotic symptoms. The origin of many neurotic symptoms is said to depend on conflicts that have been removed from consciousness by repression and maintained in the unconscious through various defense mechanisms. Recent biopsychological explorations have shed light on the relationship between brain physiology and the levels of consciousness at which people retain memories.
So, in a nutshell..if, as a result of memories not being recalled at present but still available to be recalled at will(coming from external factors such as watching a movie like that).. my subconscious is going to sooner or later direct my attention to performing an action rated as part of human behavioral disturbances that I consider to be against my morale(maybe yours is totally fine on this matter, so, to you, there's nothing wrong with it), I would rather refrain myself from watching something that I grade as fruitless. I've known about many cases in which those who believed themselves to be error-free people when watching scenes like these, ended up fulfilling the same role, once in a lifetime, but they failed.
Hope I got through to you this time.
