The Conscious / Unconscious / Everything else Split

Hi everyone,

It’s not uncommon in NLP circles to make fun of people who promulgate the mind / body split.

Yet we often talk about ‘the unconscious’ like it’s a part separated from us. ("I set up communication with my unconscious", etc.)

Is it a case of the pot calling the kettle black? (And I have no idea why that metaphor makes sense, but people seem to know what it means.)

Does it merely serve a purpose to set it up that way?

Interested in your thoughts. What do you think?

Cheers
