The Known Unknown

Knowledge is something too weird and deep for our conscious and subconscious mind to fully consume, you don’t believe me? Well, what if I asked you to count all the things you already know? I think the answer would be easy But what if I asked you to count all the things you are aware of not knowing? I guess now it’s getting harder Now, let’s take the question to the highest level where I am going to ask you to count all the things that you are not aware of not knowing?Impossible, isn’t it?!There is a famous theory in psychology that says if any person wants to acquire or learn any new skill or information it has to pass through four stages to be fully absorbed by his mind,and those stages consequently are: (unawareness in the subconscious mind then unawareness in the conscious mind then awareness in the conscious mind then awareness in the subconscious mind).

You won’t find any information or skill in the universe that doesn’t follow this process, let’s take driving for example. First you are young and you are unaware that such skill exist so you are unaware if you have it or not so to you it was “unawareness in the subconscious mind”, then you grew up and you became aware that there is something called driving and you are aware that you don’t know anything about it ، so driving became “unawareness in the conscious mind”, After that you started learning driving but you still mix up the paddles and forget to change the gear and that’s all because driving to you is still “awareness in the conscious mind”, after a few months of learning you can drive well, talk to somebody on the phone and drink your morning coffee at the same time that’s because this skill passed the three steps and now it became at the fourth stage which is “awareness in the subconscious mind”.

In our next TEDx KafrElsheikh event, we will not only tell you about the things that”you are aware that you don’t know” but we will also tell you about the things that “you are not aware that you don’t know”, and we will do our best to make this event a starting point to you for all the inspiring ideas to pass the three stages and become awareness in the subconscious mind just as you driving your car, talking on the phone and drinking your coffee at the same time.
