The author’s research, the aim of which was to try to establish the actual facts of unconscious memory, succeeded in finding that such memories do exist and are the root of a wide variety of mental health problems. The research also, unexpectedly, identified a basic instinct for survival and revealed a deep-rooted suspicion of a mother’s love as the vehicle which carries the suffering of infantile trauma through childhood mental health problems to the adult’s irrational and sometimes violent behavior.
