This is not convincing as we can make statical interpretation of

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?
Throwing an apple ===> a parabola
But throwing a banana ====> a parabola, too.
Can you not see that these two relations are not in a symmetrical
one-to-one relation? There are many actions that can be represented by
one and the same parabola.
