I don't understand how you reason.
I try to obey the rules of grammar in communication. If a word
implies an action, such as "run" or "implement" or "interview", then
there should be some action involved in the referent of the word. Or
else it does not imply an action and it an object. Simple logical
consistency in semiotics.
This is not convincing as we can make statical interpretation of
actions. In physics this is traditionally done by adding one
dimension. The action of throwing an apple (action) can easily be
associated to a parabola in space-time.
This invalidate your point, even if you say that such parabola does
not exist, as you will need to beg on the "real action" to make your
So do you agree that the relation goes both ways, which is to say
that the relation is symetrical? If the action of throwing an apple
implies a parabola, does the existence of the parabola alone define the
particular act of throwing the apple?
