But I understand.

Hey... I typed that! I actually looked it up in the book (on my kindle) and did a little paraphrasing.

I am reading the book to see how the subconscious "gift of fear" might help to improve my road craft while commuting through the abundant hunks of rolling steel I encounter on a daily basis.

The subconscious picks up on many things we don't realize and it should be listened to.

For instance: I was trying to figure out how my Spidy senses would kick in and tell me there was a car (or bicycle) coming down a side street when there were building in the way. After reading the book I realized that my subconscious was simply picking up reflections in the windows of businesses and parked cars that allowed me to effectively see around blind corners.

Now I consciously apply it on my daily rides.
