  1. I have no doubt that consciousness affects the subconscious mind, and not only on its own, but also on someone else's.

    Consciousness is a brake and incentive of the subconscious mind.

    Consciousness pumps the subconscious with images and receives images from it and translates it into speech and thus affects the subconscious of another person.

  2. When answering, I will talk about the “conscious” and” unconscious ” in a person (I will explain why below).

    The conscious can, under certain conditions, influence the unconscious, but mainly by one method – replacing the unconscious with a conscious one (but in practice such an influence of the conscious on the unconscious is rare among people).

    The unconscious always affects the conscious again, the main method of replacing the conscious with the unconscious (all habits, opinions, beliefs, evidence, psychological complexes and any a priori are the results of the process of such replacement) and this, alas, is the mainstream among people.

    The unconscious from one person is easily betrayed to another like an infectious disease (the same propaganda, advertising… and even “hypnosis” is an example of this).

    Awareness is not transmitted between people like “health” (it is impossible to transfer either understanding or skills to another person except through a long, non-linear and difficult learning process, but if a person does not want to learn, there will be no result and the same hypnosis will not help in this).

    The unconscious is a complex system of reflexology (instructive, essentially machine “thinking” and corresponding behavior) of the brain and partly of the spinal cord. The conscious is seen (represented)by modern science as a “special process” in the brain (which can “switch off” during sleep, for example), but it is powerless to describe it reliably and verifiably.

    The conscious and the unconscious seem to belong to “parallel universes” (not intersecting) that are transformed (in an eclectic mixture of each other) into what people call “consciousness”.

    I will not justify this (I will die writing, and readers will read) because almost all human sciences (from philosophy to psychology) have tried to mix in a bunch of small basic concepts of these processes. For example, in” consciousness “most researchers include (knead together mala) both the conscious and the unconscious (which is why I could not answer the question of the topic in such “terms”).

    It would seem that it is absolutely impossible to reason in mixed terms (“consciousness”) separately about the parts involved in them (“conscious” and “unconscious”) (causally and logically). But modern science proves in practice that this is not only possible, but also perfectly possible (new “scientific works” and works almost appear every day). To rake just this Augean stable, you will need at least a dozen weighty monographs (and then not the fact that I will rake it clearly and “convincingly” for everyone), and I'm not sure that anyone needs it. So I'm sorry, I have to take my leave at this point.

  3. The interaction between our conscious and subconscious minds

    Our conscious and subconscious minds interact with each other. Consciousness is a window for receiving input for the subconscious mind. It receives information from the environment through our senses, processes and converts it into electrical signals. The conscious mind sends electrical messages to the subconscious mind, which analyzes and stores data.

    On the other hand, the subconscious mind controls the conscious mind, making decisions based on all the information available to it, while the conscious mind follows these instructions. The subconscious mind contains the experience of previous generations and the subjective knowledge of the individual accumulated throughout life. Our subconscious mind is a part of our brain that we still do not have access to, and which communicates with consciousness through an electric “language”.

    Dr. David Eagleman, a renowned American neuroscientist, compares the brain's performance to the company's current operations. The subconscious mind performs the functions of the owners or shareholders of the company, and the functions of the CEO are entrusted to the conscious mind. The CEO collects information for his shareholders and transmits it to them. The owners of the company make decisions and give instructions to the CEO, and the CEO performs the assigned tasks. Therefore, according to this comparison, consciousness only forms a model of the world and is the executive body for executing directives sent by the subconscious . In other words, the subconscious mind controls consciousness in the same way as the owners of the company , it gives orders to the CEO-consciousness.

    The model of the world that our subconscious mind uses to make decisions is constantly updated as new information becomes available. Therefore, if we want to develop our cognitive abilities, we first need to carefully control what data enters our brain from the outside world, i.e. consciousness must let information enter the brain, carefully selecting it.

  4. Actually, the question seems simple, I would rephrase it to understand what you wanted to ask…

    Perhaps we should first agree on who and how understands the terms Conscious and Unconscious, and then discuss the issue itself.

    We are now in a normal state of consciousness. We take for example any psychotechnics and consciously influence the unconscious.

    The therapist does the same thing with his consciousness by influencing the client's unconscious.

  5. Of course, it is possible, in both directions, for example, a person underwent surgery under general anesthesia,in fact, the consciousness does not remember anything fell asleep woke up,the unconscious was injured as an operative intervention was performed. As a result, the person received later panic attacks on the background of stress, not related to consciousness! purely on an unconscious level. But after receiving proper treatment and realizing the cause, PA coped with the problem. More often, injuries lie so far and long in the unconscious that you can only deal with them with the help of hypnosis

  6. There is no clear answer to this question (i.e., an objective one that suits everyone). If you consider yourself a materialist, then no. Here it is necessary to clarify what you mean by “unconscious”? Dead matter, or Freud? In general, everyone decides for themselves. I prefer the primacy of metaphysics, and I think that being dominates existence, i.e. consciousness determines being, and not vice versa.
