Is it a contradiction to say that someone is having a bad conversation

Muscles aren't moved by neurons, muscles move themselves in sympathy

Exactly what I've been saying. If you model only the superficial
behaviors, you can't expect the meaningful roots of those behaviors to
appear spontaneously.
