When I think it's pictures and this voice which I guess is mine but it's much softer and feminine then my own. Also it won't ever shut up and I can hardly ever clear the voice unless I guess it is sleeping or my thoughts are not active.

You can just watch the thoughts appear. Look closely to see your next thought appear and see where it appears. If you keep your attention on that spot it actually stops thought arising.

Morgan Freeman

He also narrates my life. He gets annoying sometimes, Drinks all my beer, leaves the seat up. I caught him several times surfing porn. I've asked him repeatedly to leave. He wont listen. He just keeps jabbering on about what I'm doing. He's talking about me typing this reply out. He wont shut up.

He also snores.

So then, is Morgan the 6 or the 9? Because he certainly seems to f*** you around alot.

I wonder how people who have deaf all their lives think? What about Helen Keller prior to being taught language? How did she "think"

It is interesting most people have an inner conversation with themselves. When I drive to work, I'm not thinking about I"m doing. Why do we have to be aware of doing anything?

I do think we have a core soul. I think our subconscious, is a connection with that.

When taken seriously ? This is actually a very good thread so SnF and an apology for my antics.

Now, I believe this may be what the Native Americans refer to as being your, " Spirit guide " !

Perhaps a few posts from some members of such ? If I didn't miss anything ?

Good thread All !

I'd forgotten our disagreements. And I fail miserably at grudges.

The same thing is what slows down the reading speed of people. They match the words being read with the inner dialoge. Somtimes even forming the slight movement of speaking the words silently to themselves. To really speed read you have to keep the toungue out of the process and not try to say the words to yourself..

Stop reading to yourself. As you read you probably subvocalize, or pronounce the words to yourself. Almost everybody does it, although to different degrees: some people actually move their lips or say the words under their breath, while others simply say each word in their heads. Regardless of how you subvocalize, it slows you down. (You are concerned with speed reading here, not reading to practice communicating the material verbally, which can be done later if you find it necessary.) To break the habit, try to be conscious of it. When you notice yourself pronouncing words to yourself, try to stop doing it. Practice visualizing a word at the moment you see it, rather than confirming the word in your mind and then visualizing it. It may help to focus on key words and skip over others, or you may want to try humming to yourself or counting "1,2,3,4" repeatedly in order to prevent subvocalizing. One exercise to stop your lips from moving is to put a finger on your mouth and keep it there while you read.

Call me crazy but I think each side of our brain has a voice.

I think this is why we get thoughts "out of the blue". We receive cues subconsciously from either side of the brain depending upon the input.

One side speaks and the otherside answers.
But both sides are heard, known.
They 'think' they know but they are known.

As soon as language and words are learned the human mind keeps talking. Even when alone. It talks to who? The who it is talking to already knows what is going to be said because it is the same as the one saying it.

Who is doing the hearing of the thinking? Who knows the thought?

Some people tell me that they form mental pictures instead of "talking".

How does your brain work?

My mind mixes the talking with pictures. Though mostly I do see and think and dream in pictures or continous pictures as a video in a sense.

Unfortunately there seems to be two seperate entities. There's my inner voice and then there's my voice.

It's so interesting that some people are really into visualizing their thoughts. I'm not good at it and I'm wondering if it would help me to focus more?

I might be wrong on this, but I think that the latest discoveries in neuroscience point to an autonomous brain. Due to our neurons and synapses we have a brain that is able to create consciousness on its own. There is no ghost in the machine so to speak. There is no "agent", or "soul" that is in control. It's only the brain itself that creates phenomena like a mind and thought ... The implications are truly astonishing and scary.

But if "nobody" is at the master switch how come there are two different outcomes when one thinks about moving an arm, and when that thought actually moves your arm. I never understood this. According to real-time MRI the same brain parts are activated

I do. But it's not like. A "voice" that I could pick out. I have the words planned running through etc. But I don't recognize or "hear" a specific voice.

I'll change that...

Most likely because I'm an engineer, when I think, I'm the only one talking... in my head that is. Sometimes I do talk out loud to solve a problem. In any case, I don't think it strange at all to hear something that you didn't "say" in your mind. I wish it would happen more often for me. These thoughts flow up from the depths of our conciseness, they are as normal as breathing. At least that's what I believe.

I wrote a paper in University on lucid dreams, so I'm extremely aware of the "Altered States of Conciseness" -check out the book by Charles Tart... Hope you all find what you are looking for (look within).

"We have no idea what the mechanism is that makes this happen. If we ever do understand, it will bring a new understanding to the universe.” - Charles Tart
