What is an image:
an image is a collection of words with which one describes an entity (a person ) or something created by the mind (a country).
The image may contain several adjectives with complex meaning, and expectations of certain behavior (which are further set of words).
All this is created by the movement of thought, based on knowledge and experience.
For example you may hold an image of famous people like Gandhi or Picasso.
Images also have emotions attached to them, because “thinking” used to construct them, has some kind of inherent judgment (which a form of emotion) .
Our consciousness is complex interaction of between these images. The war within is a conflict between these images.
