Where do our thoughts come from?

Have you ever wondered where your thoughts come from? Is it simply a matter of the hard wiring of the brain? For example, when an idea comes to you suddenly, where did it come from? Is there more to this than we currently understand?

  • Mar 10 2011: I also agree with Zaz Tao that :This whole flurry of neural activity must be part of, or connect to the part of your brain that generates language; that forms thought into words or symbols that can be expressed to the part of your brain that listens and can break down the words and symbols into meaning, which in turn is sent to neural circuitry that checks for validity, consistency or falsehood.
