    You've neglected the new age "enlightenment".

    Going back to notions previous to the 20th century, the unconscious is
    noumenal like Kant's "ding an sich". In other words, what the heck is it
    then? ;-)

    In case Ted objects:

    (bq) "But the unconscious is merely noumenal and we have no immediate access
    to it. It is as indirectly accessible as, for instance, matter, or nature as
    a whole." [CG Jung from 27 February 1935 lecture as found on page 407 of
    _Nietzsche's *Zarathustra*_ (volume one), Princeton University Press. 1988.
    New Jersey]
