Our conscious mind is the outer layer of the individual psyche. It is this consciousness which is in charge of giving a definition to who we are and of perceiving and describing the outer reality.
Modern psychology estimates the consciousness to represent only 10% of the overall functions and activities of the psyche. So, in reality, what we perceive is mostly defined by the hidden aspects of our psyche, the subconscious or the unconscious.
