The intuition and the unconscious

The works of I. M. Sechenov and I. P. Pavlov were finally justified materialistic idea that all our experiences, impressions and thoughts caused strictly defined signals going to the brain and arousing in him traces from the previous irritation. "The objective world, - pointed I. M. Sechenov, - existed and will exist in relation to each person before his thoughts; hence, the primary factor in the development of the latter has always been and will be for us outside world with its subject links and relations". Whatever arbitrary neither seemed certain of our thoughts or actions, in fact, they all have their reasons. Here's what he wrote about this N. G. Chernyshevsky, "the Most common example of action, based on nothing except our will, it is this: I get up from the bed; which leg I stand? Want on the left, will want to right. But it only seems so superficial glance. Actually, the facts and impressions produce what leg people. If there are no special circumstances and thoughts, he gets on the wrong foot, which is more convenient for him to stand for anatomical position of his body on the bed. If you are special motives beyond their power of this physiological convenience, the result will change according to changing circumstances. If, for example, in man shall thought: "you get Up on the right leg and the left", he will do it, but there must be a simple replacement of one underlying cause (physiological facilities) other reason (thought to prove their independence). But where did this second reason, whence were thought to show its independence from external conditions? She could not appear without reason, it was made or, in the words of the interlocutor, or recollection of the previous dispute, or something like that... the phenomenon, which we call the will, is itself an element in a series of phenomena and facts, United by a causal relationship".
Thus, our subjective, i.e., perceived internally, the experience is not an independent phenomenon, but a reflection of the natural current in the brain chains of associations, images, words, and so on, it is Necessary to emphasize that not all resulting in the cortex of the Association are realized by us. We are conscious only of those moments that cause more or less severe agitation cortical cells. A huge mass of signals, especially from internal organs, are not clearly understood, though these signals can be associated with a stronger impression that comes to the mind. "For example, we know nothing, " said I. M. Sechenov, what types of thoughts each of us associated with the reflexes of a stomach, and these associations, probably, exist." Thus, the mass of the processes in the cortex of the brain, occurring at low cortical excitability of cells, although not well understood, but may affect the conscious sphere. This is the subconscious mind, which seemed to idealists something mysterious and intangible. Now we know that the sphere of consciousness is impermanent: in each moment of the state of excitability different points of the crust varies, and in the consciousness emerge some images, then the other. The conscious and subconscious single and inseparable from each other.
The brain can be thought of as a very advanced computing machine. Her work is in full swing and on the surface, in the sphere of optimal excitability of the cortex of the brain according to Pavlov, and in the depths of the subconscious. Many outstanding creative achievements, of course, are largely secured by the work of unconscious mechanisms. If we're passionate about a particular task, these mechanisms can continue to work and then when we do not think about this subject. The solution can come even in a dream, what we will talk further.
About intuition correctly say that it is unconscious experience. The intuition and the subconscient can be important in creative activity, but food for them is a stock life experience, and these phenomena contain nothing mysterious and inexplicable. The individual has not yet explained moments there, but unexplained and inexplicable things are different.
