    found a quiet place in his subconscious?

    "Unlike Dancer, whose instant flare-ups diminished just as quickly, Jack Lee fought the loss of control because his fury, once vented, took a long time to subdue; and anger clouded his thinking. Away from the cause the symptoms were easier to alleviate, so he took himself out of the danger zone and found a quiet place in his subconscious for a few minutes."

    Is it just saying he wants to cool his head?

    Yes, that's a good way of putting it.

    Well, perhaps. But it might also mean he wants to spend some time quietly going over his own thoughts, rather than simply reacting. It might even be deeper than that; he might be trying to go deeper into his own mind to find the subconscious place from which this anger is arising.

    Then again, "to cool his head" may be exactly right. Or, as we might say, "Get a grip on yourself, Jack!"
