Unconscious refers to the state of not being awake and aware of one's surroundings or sensations, often due to illness, injury or sleep. It can also pertain to the mental processes of which an individual is not aware. These unconscious processes can influence one's feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. In psychology, the unconscious mind often carries memories, desires, or fears that may not be readily accessible to the conscious mind but can still influence behavior and emotions.
