According to C.S. Lewis, in his novel The Screwtape Letters, there are three levels of human thought.

  1. Will: The first primary level. At this level, everything is real, and factual. The thoughts on this level influence your daily life and govern all of your actions. Also, thoughts here are usually subconscious, influencing you without you even knowing it.

  2. Intellect: Thoughts on this level tend to be conscious thoughts, concious decisions. These thoughts can be anything at all, and don't necessarily influence you in any great way.

  3. Fantasy: The final and most distant level of thought. Thoughts here are random, often nonsensical. Many times these thoughts encompass the results of your actions, since no one consciously realizes what their actions may mean.
