The subconscious mind is the shared database that links us all to the Matrix

I actually just thought about this because I'm trying to solve a minor home repair problem, and I decided to use the trick of thinking about the problem, then not thinking about it for awhile, and then when you think about the problem again the solution just pops into your head. Awesome technique if you've never tried it.

Anyway, it got me thinking that maybe what I'm really doing is sending a query to a large central database, and when a solution is discovered, it's delivered to my brain, ready to be "read."

The idea that all of us have a linked subconscious really isn't that ridiculous considering many prior philosophers and psychologists have noted the similarities between archetypes that are found in all cultures. And we all seem to share a common land in dream world as well.

So, when you are trying to solve a problem you've never encountered before, you can "ask your subconscious mind to solve the problem" and with a little time the answer will be delivered.

I actually learned about the technique as a kid reading John D. Fitzgerald's "The Great Brain" books. Awesome series. The basic idea is that if you have a problem you need to solve, and if you think about it really hard before going to bed, when you wake up, the answer will come to you at some point, while tying your shoes or taking a shower or whatever.

I've learned that it doesn't have to be overnight that you do it, if you just think really hard about how to solve some issue, but can't come up with an answer, just stop thinking about it, and later, and sometimes randomly, it will just pop into your head. Other times, the next time you think about how to solve the problem, an obvious solution will occur to you.

It also can also happen with things we know but can't quite remember. Like when you're like, "Oh geez, what's the name of that song?" In the old days, before google, you couldn't just get the answer right right away. So if you just stopped thinking about trying to remember the name of the song for a little bit, at some future point, sometimes even just a minute or two later, if you return to the question, the answer will just pop into your head.

As a side note, a trick that works for some people, when trying to remember the name of a person or band or whatever, is to go through the alphabet a letter at a time and seeing which letters 'stand out.' It's really accurate for at least figuring out the letters in the name, especially the beginning ones.

Also some people have the answer come to them in dreams.
