I have both present, although the internal dialogue far outweighs the visual. The visual seems to become more active when it is working in tandem with the dialogue. I became interested in the internal dialogue as a teen reading the Castaneda books. He recommended stalking the internal dialogue, as he asserted the mind wasn't ours, but a foreign installation. His premise was if we stalked the thoughts inside, we would be able to see them as separate, as well as understand that they are not us, but a tool that for many has become a jailer.

On a side note, while I never considered not everyone has an internal dialogue as mentioned here, it doesn't surprise me. I now wonder if men are more prone to the internal dialogue than women. My significant other is what I have always called heart smart. She has an uncanny knack for arriving at correct conclusions without having the necessary data to have done so. My mom is the same way.

Thank you for a most interesting read.

Thanks for the reply!

Sounds interesting. I hadn't heard of Castaneda. Will have to look into his writings.

I was wondering that too, but I'm saving that search for another day. ; -)
