LBN HISTORICAL COMMENTARY By
Dreams are the "royal road to the unconscious".
This meant that dreams illustrate the "logic" of the unconscious mind. Freud developed his first topology of the psyche in The Interpretation of Dreams (1899) in which he proposed that the unconscious exists and described a method for gaining access to it.
The preconscious was described as a layer between conscious and unconscious thought; its contents could be accessed with a little effort.

LBN-RECOMMENDS By KATHY BATES (ACTRESS):
Im getting into Edie Falcos new show, Nurse Jackie. I love the black humor and its cynical take on life.
I havent seen anything I have liked as much since Six Feet Under.
I think that's due to the fact that there are way too many reality shows and not enough strong dramas on TV these days.
Books are the carriers of civilization.
Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.
I think that there is nothing, not even crime, more opposed to poetry, to philosophy, ay, to life itself than this incessant business.
Henry David Thoreau
***Now that Lauren Conrad's no longer on "The Hills," she's wasting no time spilling the world's worst kept secret:
The show is fake.
Conrad was on "The View" this morning, and when asked about Spencer Pratt's apology phone call to her in the season finale, she said she wasn't even on the other end of the line.
*** Michael Jackson has been going to the office of Dr. Arnie Klein -- dermatologist to the stars -- and he's been going there several times a week lately.
Klein and M.J. have a long history together.
Klein has treated Jackson's vitiligo -- a pigmentation disorder.
