The Secret of Aladdin's Lamp!
"There are many interpretations of the tale of 'Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp. Aladdin can be seen to represent our conscious mind. The genie represents our unconscious (subconscious) mind.
The lamp, and the action of rubbing the lamp, refer to the proper actions and working of the mind. We all know that over ninety per cent of our mental activity occurs in the unconscious or subconscious mind.
Professor wrote, 'The power to move the world is in the subconscious mind.' In the tale of Aladdin, the genie says, 'Your wish is my command.'
Yes, as William James also pointed out, we tend to do whatever is our strongest, or most dominant, desire. 'Rubbing the lamp,' so to speak, sets the dominant conscious thought into action, so as to influence the genie (that is, the subconscious mind). Thus, in this interpretation of the tale, Aladdin's lamp represents the intelligent utilization of our mind and thoughts and, perhaps more importantly, our Creative imagination."
