allow a small quote sir:
"I believe thinking on a conscious level is the only level that can be called thinking.
I believe subconscious thinking has no meaning."

i have to say i believe exactly the opposite, but i do recognize the need for conscious reasoning.
haven't you ever had an aha(!) experience that has provided a solution to a problem that for all your conscious pondering you were unable to solve?

i can distinctly remmember in third grade, during math class my teacher presenting methods of solving problems, then posing problems and asking us to solve them. i'd sit there and never take pencil to paper, the teacher would ask me why i wasn't doing anything. i'd then give her the correct answer to the problem. her response would be, that is correct but how did you get it? truly i don't believe i knew but i did know it was'nt by the methods she had just showed us. i was only vaguely aware of portions of reasoning flickering into my consciousness and a sort of affirmation from myself with respect to those reasonings, then finally the answer which i would also affirm.

regards, tim
