It is because the thoughts you think you think appear as images that you do not recognize them as nothing. You think you think them, and so you think you see them.

THE FIRST AND LAST FREEDOM CHAPTER 15 'THE THINKER AND THE THOUGHT'
IN ALL OUR experiences, there is always the experiencer, the observer, who is gathering to himself more and more or denying himself. Is that not a wrong process and is that not a pursuit which does not bring about the creative state? If it is a wrong process, can we wipe it out completely and put it aside? That can come about only when I experience, not as a thinker experiences, but when I am aware of the false process and see that there is only a state in which the thinker is the thought.
So long as I am experiencing, so long as I am becoming, there must be this dualistic action; there must be the thinker and the thought, two separate processes at work; there is no integration, there is always a centre which is operating through the will of action to be or not to be - collectively, individually, nationally and so on. Universally, this is the process. So long as effort is divided into the experiencer and the experience, there must be [conflict]. Integration is only possible when the thinker is no longer the observer. That is, we know at present there are the thinker and the thought, the observer and the observed, the experiencer and the experienced; there are two different states. Our effort is to [unify] the two.

Your statement gives one the idea of there maybe being no self center of self?
We become the ourobouros (SP), a seemingly endless cycle that devours itself.
do i look like the sorta guy that would sell snake oil?
all of it boils down to this: you know nothing. even the things you think you know: you dont.
Overall our minds work pretty well to filter out the falsehoods.
