There are two of us,
The one we are conscious of,
And the one we are not conscious of.
The one we are conscious of
Is composed of the one I see and know,
And you see and know,
And the one you also see and know,
But I do not see and know.
And the one I see and know,
But you do not see and know.
The one we are not conscious of
Is composed of the one we can become conscious of,
And the one that is there, and real, and impacts our life,
But is beyond our ability to know,
And the multitude of unconscious “contents”
That influence us and make life interesting.
We need to be told all of this early on,
And taught how to relate to all that we are,
And also are,
For the good of the whole,
Individually and collectively.
We have to know what we know,
And what can be known.
The less we know,
The worse it is for all of us.
