Unrepressed Unconscious

The unrepressed unconscious is a psychoanalytical concept in which the unconscious level is unrestrained and begins to influence behavior. The unconscious, according to Freud, is the deepest level of consciousness that contains implicit, unwanted, and unacceptable ideas, memories, desires, and emotions. There is a connection between the unrepressed unconscious and implicit memories which are involved with performing actions, skills, and behaviors that we don't consciously think about while performing. An example is riding a bike - while riding it you don't have to consciously think about how to do it.
