comment What are the key features of dreams that trigger dream recall in the waking state?
Upon reflection, it appears to me that this question is related to the following one. Two people shared an experience. How can one person describe that situation to another person later to cause that person to recall the situation?

comment What makes some things more fun than others universally?
There is a new kind of "pay to win", super addictive games, which are characterized by brief rounds (15 min or less games), inequality of players (some are much stronger than others) and a steep time involved to increase power(grind for 12 months or pay 200-11000$). Notable examples of such games are world of tanks, war thunder, robocraft and clash of clans. you can look up what makes these games addictive for more info

comment Freudian repressed unconscious as the biological reason behind self-destructive behavior?
Most of the Freudian ideas have been discredited over time, some people even want to recognize him as a literature figure, instead of psychology researcher

comment Can incubation be performed, while, at the same time, being focussed on a problem?
I've read that complete change of activity produces superior incubation results, compared to still working on related problems. Following this line of thinking, incubation while working on the same problem would produce the worst results. You can look up "non induction" lucid dreaming technique, where the subject of incubation is completely ignored- not even thinking of it, following intense training

comment What is the biological reason behind disorganized thinking and disorganized behavior in thought disorders?
I can say that in terms of language, there are multiple areas of the brain involved: forming sentences, understanding others, reading and writing. It is possible for some stroke victims to understand others, but be unable to form coherent meaningful sentences. If you can find the name of this area, it might be a good place to start your search

I've asked a similar question, although mine is more about quantity than quality: cogsci.stackexchange.com/questions/8668/…

comment How is it that taking a break from a problem sometimes allows you to figure out the answer?
In lucid dream induction there's a technique called "non-induction", where after a few intense days of affirmations and other training, the person completely lets go and does not even allow the topic of induction to enter one's mind. It is remarkably effective at inducing lucid dreams when properly executed. I've compared this phenomenon to a coiled spring - a spring will not expand as long as you keep compressing it. In case of induction, learning, focus and intention is the equivalent of compression

comment Is there a part of the human brain responsible for triggering imagination, fantasy and coming up with unusual stories?
Thanks, I modified the question to clarify that I'm asking explicitly about the trigger for the imagination to start. Something fires in the brain and toggles the thinking pattern to diverge towards imaginary or daydreaming.

Clarified the question - it is specifically about the trigger of the imagination

comment What is the neurobiological basis of the “inner voice” used for thought or reading?
I see your objection to the single treaded nature of the voice. In this case, it is the verbal content of these thoughts that matters. Your example of "I'm not thinking right now" disrupts the states I describe just as well.
