data. It asks for infrared photos at xy coordinate in 1/2 an hr. We say,
alright sure here you go.

Sure, that's quite an effective example, but what is the material difference
between thinking and acting? Is the AI going to say "need to follow this way
to prove the theorem, ok?" Is it going to say "need to refactor this piece
of my source code?" Where is the barrier between thought and action?
