Bruce, this remark of yours triggered me:

The smallest adjustment of a muscle is the product of a control
process (excepting uncontrolled twitches and tics); all activity
must be carried out via this final level of control.

Why do you except twitches and tics? Why do you call them uncontrol-
led? What would be wrong with a theory that, as e.g. Freud insists,
_all_ actions have a purpose, even if that purpose is not conscious?
Might there not be goals that _make_ us twitch or tic?
