Unconscious Cerebration

Some people actually learn to depend on unconscious cerebration. A

man, for instance, who has to make an address on a particular subject

or to write an article, will record that fact on a tablet and after

gathering a few basic thoughts in connection with the subject

proposed, will put it aside for the time being. He is confident that

various illustrations and thoughts in connection with the subject will

occur to him at intervals during the next few days, and that he will

thus without direct labor accumulate an amount of material for

use. In the early morning hours he may find that thoughts on it come

to him unbidden. Sometimes he will find these thoughts precious germs,

that will develop during the course of the following days, and will be

of great help to him. If he is worried and preoccupied with other

things very much, this may not happen, but under ordinary

circumstances he can continue routine occupations which demand

practically all of his time, yet continue to develop the subject

selected for his paper or address. The more he has occupied his mind

with the subject at the beginning, the more will this unconscious

cerebration continue.
