Our researches about the relationship between the unconscious and sexuality have pointed out that this process develops through the structures and nonverbal processes, allowing the subject to develop their sexual identification even without understanding it, preclude to develop abstractions to understand how external reality is affecting it.
If consciousness is the synthesis of the relationship between the meanings (social and sexual processes) and personal way, it’s the absence of these two that features unconscious subjectivity. This is formed primarily by emotional tone, as a shift of the intensity of feeling states (affection) that guide the subject to the given object, signal their interest, but that he can’t understand and explain, even to interfere in the way it develops its identification with sexuality. The senses may become unconscious because they don’t gain representation in the form of a sign, which would enable its representations in consciousness. In this case, even without knowing which emotion refers to the tone that drives me to something/someone, posteriorly I can be aware that it was a special feeling for each other (unlike me), but I didn’t remember me. The sense that I have built is unconscious due to the impossibility of representing it fully: with sense and meaning.
