What gives thought the right?

Is the mind the same as the body? What is consciousness? Can machines have it?

What gives thought the right?

What gives a thought the drive
Will
Desire
to exist and be recognized –
to come into consciousness
and take over the mind?

The mind is thought I'd have thought? What do you mean by the difference between mind and consciousness?

My thought is that it'd be the being of this Body in an external world.

Thought and Consciousness are often intertwined,
but while thoughts imply consciousness
consciousness in itself (whatever that B)
is much deeper and more encompassing without thought.

Such as a simple
unfiltered
unlimited sensation -
having no perceptual reference
much less
an intellectual one...

Can come in either selfmotivation or external motivation.

Then how are you talking about it? But I accept that sensation is the ground of perception as at base we are a body with senses in an external world and that thought can be two things, perception upon sensation and perception as memory abstraction.
