Epic post. Wish I could say more, but I don't know much about the subconscious and other psychological stuff.

Actually those sounds are produced by him playing a note and then using the whammy bar to drop the pitch of the note. You basically grab the whammy bar and press it down slowly till the bar is touching the body of the guitar and the strings are completely loose. It's known as a "dive bomb" effect.

Aren't divebombs the high pitched squeals (not pinch harmonics) made by pushing the whammy bar all the way down until the strings are loose, hitting a harmonic, and then pushing the whammy bar completely down in the opposite way (like on Floyds).

It actually has a lot to do with feed back, and you use the whammy bar to drop the pitch. He also uses the univibe for almost his entire performance at woodstock.
