Having thoughts and being aware of the thoughts you have are two different
propositions. Freud was a big fan of subconscious thought and how it
motivates us to do the things we do. And a lot of us have no idea what we
are doing (on one level or another) or why. The reasons we come up with are
usually arrived at after the fact and are more likely to be attempts at
justification than valid observations.
