Much good stuff in this post!

The basal ganglia can IMO be viewed as a central switching-station for where
one "actention module" (of an individual's "Actention Selection System")
become transiently rendered "a dominant" (chapter 7 in The Learning Brain,
MIR Publishers Moscow 1982/83) actention module, whilst all functionally
incompatible and on relative balance insufficiently 'life-situationally'
stimulated (energized) other actention modules are roughly simultaneously
rendered 'subliminal' (mainly via the general principle/mechanism of
"lateral inhibition"(alternatively put, "centre/surround
excitation/inhibition").
