Behavior: the control of SENSATION?

See this lovely article, which poses serious questions to B:CP via its well-argued and empirically-supported view of Perception as Closed-Loop Convergence (P:CLC). Then behaviour is not the control of PERCEPTION.

RM: I don’t see much relevance of this paper to PCT. PCT explains the controlling done by living organisms. This paper purports to explain perception. Perception is certainly a component of control but how it is done is not really important to PCT as long as the process provides analogs of the variables that are controlled. What am I missing?
