Correlation of the Subconscious

.... Now at this point, if we’re correlating God the Father to the mind or conscious, and Jesus Christ to the memory or subconscious, it’s important to establish just what the subconscious can do:

.... Your memory is not simply a dormant bank of information. It is very, very active. Your memory is constantly polling your heart and your mind (that is, your soul,) for information that it can assimilate. Let us match this again to Jesus Himself who said, “I am He who searches the minds and the hearts” (Revelation 2:23). Or if that’s not close enough to the actual Godhead for you, you can see the same principle in Romans 8:27: “Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the word of God.” Now think about these things. And by the way, we also see the Holy Spirit, who is the perceptive part of God’s person, playing a role in all of this. And also let us consider this:

.... While the memory or the subconscious cannot originate thought, it can still initiate a conversation, and it can do so on it’s own initiative. For instance, when you have a dream at night, your memory is speaking to your conscious of it’s own accord. Or if you suddenly recollect something out of the clear blue, your memory, your subconscious, may have alerted you to that fact. It has initiated conversation with your conscious mind.

.... This would also answer an age-old Arian quip. “If Jesus was God, to whom did He pray?” Well, don’t we have dreams at night? Doesn’t our memory address our mind in our dreams or sudden recollections? And if there is a correlation between our subconscious or memory and Gods, remember that God’s memory is perfect and complete. If the memory matches the subconscious then God’s own subconscious must be perfectly full and capable, in and of itself, much more so than we’ve ever dreamed to be possible, since as mortal beings we are always facing a learning curve. God is omniscient, He has always known everything: therefore His memory was never created, it has always been, and it is everything that He Himself ever has been or ever will be. We might say it is “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).

.... The life of this memory would be eternal, yet tied up in the self existent life of God Himself, until the Word became flesh and Jesus would say, “As the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted to the Son to have life in Himself.” (John 5:26).

.... Anyway, this is a basic theory. One day perhaps, with a fuller scriptural investigation, it can receive further definition in a way that does not depend on human understanding at all, and then perhaps it will move from the realm of theory to more serious consideration. Bt at the very least it offers a basic concept to account for the Son within the Trinity, in a way that correlates to the triune nature of man, who was made in God’s image.
