The unconscious formed between infant and mother and later toddler and mother, occurs, in Freudian theory, before the repressed unconscious. It is the era of the construction of the self’s psychic architecture. Maternal communication—a processional logic—informs the infant’s world view. Although Sigmund Freud never proposed a theory of unconscious perception, his concept of the formation of a dream is impossible without it. In “Recommendations to physicians practising psycho-analysis”, he has already made it clear that the analyst’s unconscious is indeed receptive. A person’s metrical character will articulate his unconscious timing, something that is very hard to identify, even if it is an important part of both the act of communication and the recipient act of listening. More commonly, and also more complexly, however, a person will change his tempo in sessions according to differing states of mind.
