I just provided you with the lowest layer...this happens at several levels and layers in thought, it is established ! (its not something new or recent)
Got that, Olivier?
There is no resolution to focal points of view other then dominance or mutual annihilation..

Again, the whole is more than the sum of its parts There can be resolution of differences through synthesis.
Note that I have not said "the brain discusses...", I said the brain is a necessary platform for discussion..." and that brain statrs affect our experience of "self states". Now according to Ouspensky (et al) it may be the case that "self state transitions" operate largely at a mechanical level, but this does not imply a philosophical reductionism, rather it emphasises the aspects of the illusion of self integrity/control.
That sentence is out of place we are talking of opposing forces...wholism here requires dominant vectors of energy...actually without dominance you have nothing...the engine doesn't run in any direction !
Well, you did say "Next time it (the brain) engages in an internal dialogue..."
It's a minor point... Glad that you agree the brain does not actually engage in dialogues, but builds a platform which makes them possible.
How would you differ squary people from creative minds if you did not distinguished between dialogues and monologues even if all in the same mind ?...
To assert the dominance and continuity of a Self you do not need to kill the competition, just to overpower them ! (yes I am guessing my azz off so avoid that bell please)
