      Hello bobby G. ~
       
      The thought "I am thinking thoughts", just pops into my head
      unbidden.
       
      Is your experience of other thoughts any different than this ('just pops into my head')?
       
      Once reflection upon the topic of thinking begins, I can't tell if the "I" referred to really thought the thought, or the idea was presented in order to supply a subject to the thought sentence , 'I am thinking".

      I believe physically that thoughts appear because of the presence of beta brainwaves and are not volitional.

      You assert that thought is not volitional.  What do you see as being volitional?

      Tying knowing to joy is good.
       
      Being joy is better.
