Behavior and how many kinds of "stimuli"?

Interesting issue.  We've got, if I'm following you, at least three kinds of "stimulus."  Something originating in the outside world, something originating in the body but outside the nervous system, and something originating inside the nervous system. Maybe its important to acknowledge all three things but keep them distinct so we can give each attention in its own right?
