How My Mind Works

I was just remembering a conversation I was having with my friend, and she said that she talked herself to sleep, like talking in your mind. So that got me thinking if everyone’s mind works the same. So I’ll explain how mine works as best I can then you tell me if yours is the same.
So, in the foreground of my mind, I have my voice. It talks a lot, but I can control exactly what it says. I often find myself saying in my mind ‘Why am I even thinking this since I already know what I was going to say‘ Thats true, but I probably find it more comforting to actually have it in words. I think it makes the thought more real. But the lower levels of my brain work a lot faster than the foreground, and the foreground is the one that talks.
Underneath the foreground, there are throughs on pretty much everything, reasoning and analyzing the situation. In that area there is no such think as language, while the foreground is usually in English or whatever language I’m reading or speaking at the moment. 
And even bellow that level, there is something that is purely images. I tap into that more when my eyes are closed or when I’m not paying attention to what I’m seeing. The images can vary from something original, to something from my memory to pretty much anything. I believe that this is the most imaginative and creative part of my mind. But these images are usually standing still and not moving. 
When they are moving, it is usually as if I were watching a movie or and anime show. I think I get this from the influence of the media. Even when I picture myself in the situation, its still in third person.
I know my brain is really weird, but I hope you found this entertaining.
