Ah! I made it to the front page!

Well, I'll try to resist the temptation of debating whether possible things exist with the man who wrote the book on existence :) but here's another possible exception: subconscious or unconscious thoughts.

I don't know your position on the subconscious (I don't think it exists) but if you think there is such a thing, then subconscious thoughts are a counterexample. For example, if, as Freud claimed, women subconsciously want to have sex with their fathers, then this subconscious desire represents their father and is not conscious. Outside of Freud's speculations, there is often talk of unconscious desires or goals, which would also be counterexamples if you credit them.
