“By far the greater amount of material with which the mind is stored is never woven into the fabric of reason or imagination, and its existence is only noticed when it breaks temporarily from its prison to be embodied in our dreams and phantasies. This indicative material flung up out of our subconscious is the store house of Surrealism.”1
