Psyche is hierarchically organized system, enabled at the same time in large systems, which are groups, and communities.Sometimes the unconscious, the unconscious is understood as something transcendent or outside of the experience, not controlled by human power, pressing on him. In our view, nothing that was not amenable to scientific analysis, in no subconscious. The subconscious — it's pressed individual human experience gained throughout life and to be derived from "the depths of memory," when circumstances require.
