I thought that the meaning of the word ‘unconscious’ is oblivious(without focusing on other things).

Anyway, what I meant in the last paragraph is that “steady conscious efforts(Anapanasati, Satipatthana)” can make a change in gati. And, therefore, the efforts change the initial(automatic) response(tanha).
