Inner Speech

The brain processes 3.5 billion words in a lifetime.

Words are passed in and out in lines: more than 300 million lines that last about two seconds.

Words are necessary not only for inputting information and communicating with others but also for memory and thought processes.

Even if we do not speak them out loud, we communicate with the Self in our inner speech.

One-fourth to one-third of all thoughts is inner speech.
