I think I know what you are talking about. It usually happens when I am tired, after a long day, and while doing some mundane activity, or just lying
in bed falling to sleep.
Mine is a bit different though, as I have come to the conclusion that it is my own self talking to me, or better yet, my normal consciosness
perceiving part of my subconscious. I've considered that it might be subconsciouss thoughts leaking through, as muffinreasearch said, as the subject
matter is always about something that I have been spending a good deal of time on that day or during the week.
There have been times when I was able to concentrate, or perhaps, not-concentrate on it, and for about 5 minutes or so, I would actually listen to a
discourse on cosmology and possible states of the universe before the big bang... kind of like tuning into a damn radio show. The worst thing about
this, was that I realized that my normal mind came to a conclusion about the whole thing, and I agreed with it just before "exiting," however, I
don't remember what that conclusion was. I've also had one on the whole NWO thing hehe.. Weird, huh? It is particularly insightful to "see from an
outside perspective" how your thought process is tied together. I have also been able to recall erroneous thought processes that I have observed, and
been able to correct them as needed.
It's as if my ordinary thought process is perceived by my normal consciousness, but that my normal consciosness is "off center" or "listening
from the corner of my mind," just kind of idling there observing my own thoughts and letting them flow without interrupting them. It's like
breathing or blinking, once you think about it, it is no longer automatic.
It seems to be a type of lecture that my subconscious is going through, and I am so tired and not paying attention to the outside world, that I just
happen to lift up to veil into my subconscious for a little while and spy on my hidden inner thoughts.
I have noticed that a requirement to reach this state is to be tired, and performing a mundane task, that allows me to go on auto-pilot if you will,
or to be performing walking meditation. I presume that my brainwaves are in an Alpha, more relaxed, twilight state as these events manifest
In my own opinion, it is a perfectly normal state of mind to enter in to, you just have to shut out your ego and listen to your own mind without
judging or hindering it's own thought process by "infiltration" of the ego.
As far as hearing other peoples voices, I can't say that that has happened to me. Perhaps it's all just random synapses firing, or maybe we are able
to consciously listen to the memories that our subconscious is reviewing for later association and storage to long term memory, or for disposal, as we
do form new synaptic pathways based on what we learn and experience on particular occasions, and this usually happens during and just before sleep, or
when the brain is experiencing alpha waves as would happen during a successful meditation session.
