The learned repeated experiences with its rhythm suggestion becomes a automated knowledge. Meaning knowledge and memory that we keep but does not require us to be conscious about. Something our brain does to save energy. It is what we know as the unconscious.
The unconscious is basically imagination that are lit by emotions. Every experiences carries a emotion after all. We could say that memories are symbolic emotions.
Everyday when you enter and look at your living room you think you are seeing 100% of it. The truths is that you are seeing less than 50% of it. Most of what is familiar to us and we believe to see is actually imagination reproduction. Again, our brain does it to save energy.
A lot of what we do is unconscious which is imagination, a not required to think about knowledge in order to use them. It is in the background on how we experiences events and formulate our thinking, either we are doing art or science. Robert Innis points out about Susanne K. Langer's work on Feelings and Form that "Fiction is not a escape from the world either. Imaginary experience is also experience".
Previously I wrote about artists who works on their creation as if they were not conscious of themselves, doing their art without thinking, following no rules or conscious elaborating things but just doing it, following there guts. I suggested that when we see such artists them seem sincere, honest, original themselves, which is expressed and transmitted in their work, and we can feel it.
Doing things by following your guts is to let your unconscious on control. It is trusting your automated knowledge. It is following and dance with your internal rhythm.
Siri Hustvedt cites Jean d'Udine who said "All living creatures are constantly consummating their own internal rhythm. This rhythm, the essence of life, is the stead background against which we experience the special articulation produced by feelings".
