Suggested Title: Three kinds of Talk
  [Kyroot reading to :04.]
  [There are three kinds of talk: 1) motor-talk; 2) limbic-talk; 3) cortical talk. These three correspond to their areas in the Nervous System loop. Motor-talk is involved with the world of action: "what I have done (or others have done)"; it is related to the Primary Level. Limbic-talk says "what has happened to me" vs. what was done; it is related to Secondary Level although has the Primary Level for its ultimate basis. Cortical-talk is involved with the world of ideas and possibilities; also about what it thinks. Related also to Secondary Level.]
  [Via talk, the simple can be made complex and the complex can be made foolish and irrelevant. E.g., conversation between two people (or Internal Dialogue) where disagreement/misunderstanding occurs; issue of capital punishment where the complex is made simple; issue of a father's concern with son's drug involvement where the simple is made complex. Expletives make complex and/or simplify.]
  [Consider that The Dialogue is actually a trialogue: one voice of action; one voice of Thinking of Action (TOA)-planning; a third voice worries about the consequences of either (limbic-talk). Note that this is also true at Life's level of talk-thru-man. The first two voices don't really suffer, can't take responsibility for their activity or it would interfere with that activity. The third voice fills the need for another form of talk, making optimum efficiency.]
  [1:13 End of Public Tape. Excursion: for four days reconnoiter your internal dialogue to gain a hint/feel as to the relative percentages of composition of the three kinds of talk.
