The Collective Unconscious

The conscious mind, subconscious mind, and unconscious mind are the three elements that make up the human brain. While the conscious mind is always active, helping you perform day-to-day tasks, the subconscious mind is dominant at night as you sleep, generating all your crazy and unique dreams. Where does the unconscious mind come in, then? That is a rather complex question many psychologists have sought after for a long time. However, some answers to it do exist in the present day. Many people are already aware of some of those answers; it aids in helping you do things you’re not consciously aware of, including writing, walking, and other types of movements. However, what most aren’t aware of is that it also plays a role in dreaming!

It may sound crazy, but please don’t let my warnings fall on deaf ears, or else Joe’s death wouldn’t be the last on this campus.

Anyone Can Be an Artist

Art is the manifestation of human imagination in different forms. Where one can express it by painting, another can do so by sculpturing. There are numerous forms of art one can take on, even if it’s as insignificant as random doodles that you draw when you’re bored in class. Imagination breathes life into whatever your mind conjures up, that can be grouped with what someone would call “art”. Does any human-being lack imagination? No. Then why is it that some are led to believe that they cannot be artists? Science is what would be called the opposite of art;...
