Are you now going to define `thinking' as a non-action?

Not to fuel the subjective/objective reality question, but all we can
know about any res, including the model of our own minds, is perceptual.
I can exhibit irrational outward behaviour from any number of points of
view. I can observe in my own mind that my thought process, the model
of processes in my own memesphere, does not conform to mapping
expectations as given by "rationality." I cannot, however, state any
surety /beyond that point/.
