so what is Scott Bakker reading? posted 18 March 2005 in Author Q & Aso what is Scott Bakker reading? by Cu'jara Cinmoi, Author of Prince of Nothing

The thing to remember is that we humans are barely consicous (it just seems big because its the only consciousness we know, and because the things we're not conscious of don't seem to exist), that most everything goes on behind the scenes. When you sit down and the words just seem to be there, that means that your brain's sub-modules have been churning away in your unconscious - like when you remember the name of someone the day after wracking your brains trying to think of it. The key for me has always been to get my unconscious working - to immerse myself to the point where the book is the only 'problem' on my brain's plate (and to do it without entirely alienating my wife!).

That's my theory, anyway! <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> view post
