In the beginning both the conscious
and unconscious are fully undifferentiated.The very basis of the qualitative
binary state is that 1 = 0. However we have here a totally confused binary
state. Indeed the essence of psychological transformation can be expressed
as the subsequent movement towards a fully fused (i.e. fully differentiated)
The first psychological stage involves a crucial transition with the emerging differentiation of conscious and unconscious. Finite (actual) reality begins to separate from transfinite (potential) reality. This process begins in the womb and is accentuated in the first months of infancy. Fleeting undefined events take place in experience arising and disappearing in the moment of creation.
However there is as yet little differentiation of cognitive and affective modes or objective or subjective directions in experience.
