    This does not make sense, at all.

    Are you sure you copied or heard it correctly?

    Does consciousness stuff make cows of us all?

    If it said "Does subconcious stuff make cows of us all?" it might make sense. Cows are herd animals, following their leader blindly.If in the subconciuous the daughter has been convinced that the husband is not good for her, the mother is implying that the daughter is not making her own decisions.
