Introduction:In the last decades psychiatry research has become more interested in studying cognitive and behavioral manifestations of psychiatric illness, maximizing reliability.Not conscious functions of mind have been discarded as non-scientific.The early identification of psychosis has shown the blind spot of this scientific paradigm. The case of not including the APS in the DSM-5 main text due to the lack of specificity is an example. The aim of this study is proposing a change of paradigm to approach patients at early phase of illness, based not only on perceptible phenomena but also on not conscious aspects of life and relationship. Method: The Human Birth Theory formulated by Fagioli in 1971, sew up the dualism between mind and brain. Fagioli theorized that at birth light retinal stimulation produces the activation of the cerebral cortex and the beginning of human thought, which, at this moment, cannot be conscious. The emergence of the first human thought arises from the brain capacity to react to light stimulus. This process is defined by the word transformation. Results:Recent physiological findings strongly support this theory. An external agent, often represented by insane relationship at first months of life, can modify the human psychic health, producing mental illnesses. Conclusions: This theory allows a new comprehension of human being, resolving the splitting between conscious and unconscious. The alteration of human psychic health, naturally current at birth, may elicit the development of mental illness. Studying not conscious contents allow early recognizing prodromal psychosis manifestations, despite the lack of clear psychotic symptoms.
