Mike, in my view, your observations below, that your "private"
reflections were connected to a future action is exactly the sense in
which CHAT bases itself on *action* as the unity of consciousness and
behaviour, i.e., genetically. When we simply confront the product
(private thoughts) insoluble conundrums are presented. CHAT understands
the relation of thinking and acting genetically.

I might characterize what I was doing in the car as preparing for, and

thought/action/semiosis are. In light of the discussion, I began to wonder
about that term, articulation, in Martin's note. I take articulation to
mean roughly "to say out loud to another as part of a conversation (text?).
But, I have been asking myself, and ask you all for your thoughts, when I
am engaged in verbal thinking aren't I engaged in a conversation with
another, with an audience or my sense of an audience, as part of the
process that generates what I say? It is often said that one does not stop
being a sociocultural organism simply by virtue of being physically
separate from others. Is there, in such "conversations with oneself" a form
And/or, might the fact that these thoughts were incorporated in my next
communication as part of this conversation, not be considered a form of
asychronous, semiotic, action?
Thanks again for your concise answer. Sorry I cannot follow adequately some
of the points you are making.
