Re: Human mind probably plays fascinating games.

If my memory serves me right, I hazily remember reading of a case of subconscious/unconscious symbolization. In one Western self-improvement book, the author describes how he had counseled a lady patient who was terribly afraid of insects in her bed. She was paranoid about insects and would thoroughly check her mattress covers before going to sleep. After investigation it transpired that in childhood someone would sexually abuse her and the insects symbolized that abuse.
