The book has proposed the resting state to show preintentional organization. If that assumption holds, one would already expect directedness toward external contents to be manifested in the resting state during the absence of external stimuli. This is, for instance, the case in dreams. At the same time, however, there may also be directedness toward internal contents during external stimuli and their respective stimulus-induced activity. This is the case in mind wandering. Therefore, the book here discusses the examples of dreams and mind wandering in neuronal and phenomenal detail to test whether they lend further evidence to its neurophenomenal hypotheses developed in Chapter 25.

Keywords:   dreams, perceptions, internal and external awareness, midline and lateral networks, spontaneous activity, difference-based coding, self-specific organization, preintentional organization, difference-based coding, neural balance
