It makes sense to me, although I have never been able to draw a discrete line between consciousness and any part of the mind. We have cognition that we typically think of as "my thoughts". Your cognition can be taken into a dream mode wherein it ignores its surroundings and thus isn't actually conscious at that moment. Consciousness means "awareness".
Lower levels of the mind remain conscious to what they can perceive even when the cognitive mind departs into a dream world and in some cases, gets physically removed via a lobotomy.
Each portion of a mind, separated by its area in the brain, is aware of different things. Each area constitutes a separate mind with its own personality. It is from this, that what we perceive as emotions arise. Each portion sends out an urge to act, a higher level (much like a congress situation) being aware of the final result of each portion, balances out the "votes" being cast to act in this direction or that. What you finally "decide" to do is the final talley of votes.
The cognitive mind merely senses urgings that are contrary to its own volition and thus regards them as emoters urging action in a different direction that what it has "thought". By ensuring that the cognitive mind is always in agreement with the other voters (the Senate and President agree with the House), harmony is established and there are no inner complaints being registered. Harmonic bliss is realized.
