(I Never) Metathought (I Didn’t Like)

Another thought behind the experiment is the thought that “thought” may be more haphazardly dispersed than we tend to assume.  I don’t just mean “thought” in some abstract sense, but MY thought.  That all of it is MY thought is something I normally take for granted.  But don’t I “have” thoughts that I don’t want to call “mine”?  Or perhaps they “occur to me” (occur = happen) rather than being mine?  And would I sometimes make a thought my own, but it stubbornly refuses?  Nietzsche thought that Descartes shouldn’t have said any more than “there are thoughts”  (“there are” = “il y a” or “Es gibt”?).  There are.  Where is “there”?
