And I can hear a cough or a sneeze (and even a word involuntarily spoken
should there be such)--though I'd be reluctant to call these "actions," just
because I find it difficult to superimpose on these the "mental constructs"
which define for me what it means for an observable behavior to actually be
an action.  (Not sure "behavior" is the right word, but I feel some
distinction is needed between action and that something else I've called a
"behavior."  I'd definitely welcome suggestions for a better term.)

Am I confused enough yet?
