In this article you will see how the unconscious would not be just a mere repository of the past, but is also full of germs of future psychic situations and creative ideas , the not few artist sometimes be their best work to the inspirations that appear suddenly unconscious , it would exert a great influence on the mythological, religious, artwork and all other cultural activities that the human being is expressed.
