Sometimes if I focus enough, I realize that all (and I mean all) of my thoughts are pre-thought milliseconds before the thought is stated.
So for instance, if this were to be my thought:
"How would one run up a wall?"
By the time the thought gets to "ow" in "how" the entire thought was planned in my subconscious.
(So basically, every thought is pre-thought of, making the continuity of stating said thought redundant. Thus you could concentrate and hold two separate individual thoughts at the same time.)

Does this happen to anyone else? (Is there a name for this?)

Okay, my explanation is bad. It's 2am, and I'm hours from hitting the 24hr mark.

Well, ofcourse. If you really want to speed up your tinking, try to avoid sentences and go for concepts or mental imagery to make a clear statement to yourself. I only think in 'spoken word' when I feel the need to give the subject more weight.

Your message gave me the impression that you do not do this, which is a bit disturbing. Is it not the natural state for when a person is focused on a single thing? Same thing as sports, you don't consciously push down your legs after a while, you just run. Or vidja games for that matter.

I can't fully concur with your synopsis though. You claim that stating the thought is redundant, but the conclusion of the thought must first be reached before you can continue to another, seperate, individual thought. I always reasoned with myself that the sensation of two seperate thoughts (you know you tried to do it.) is simply the brief realization of the conclusion of your earlier thought, and the trained, fast start of your next line of reasoning.

I remember watching a documentary a while ago in which the presenter was hooked up to this CT-scanner type thing and was asked to pick out one of two images that were flashed to him on a screen.
By looking at the scanner the scientists could tell which image he was going to pick, even when he himself hadn't decided yet...

There are times when I get bored and stop letting my mind express thought like that. It speeds me up, but sometimes I lose track of what I'm thinking about. Still if anon is correct, then I have scared the **** out of some Asians.
