Psychoanalysis, a psychological tendency that studies the unconscious has long used "the iceberg" as a compatible image to represent the relationship that connects "the conscious" and "the unconscious". Focusing on each of these levels of the mind as logical nodes to control our analysis we argue how vulnerable such conception is in psychological terms, specially because it is admitted that the conscious may become a part of the unconscious. Likewise, we defend the idea that a psychic object of study cannot be understood, unles a rigorous exam on the difference between what is ontological and what is logical is made. Besides, we point out that these latter parameters are crucially indispensable to relate these two parameters.
