Interpretation: A) making statements about other statements, whereby the new statements of the vocabulary make use of the original statements and possibly introduce new vocabulary. If no new vocabulary is introduced, new information can be obtained by changing the syntactic elements.
B) In logic, the insertion of values (objects) instead of the constants or free variables.

Interpretation/Argument/Frith: the fact that the evidence is ambiguous does not mean that there is no correct interpretation.
When our brain conceals the ambiguity, it presents only one interpretation.

Movement/Interpretation/Objective/Intention/Frith: In movements, the internal models are the goals of the action.
Problem: Movements are ambiguous. E.g. I can go to the baker next door or to Patagonia.

Movement/Interpretation: E.g. the person opposite me should repeat everything I do. I raise my left hand, the other person raises the right. Is this a mistake?
E.g. I take my right hand and touch my left ear, the other person takes the left and touches his left ear. Is this a mistake?
N.B.: now to the correct test: in the middle of the table is a big red button. I lean forward and touch it with my forehead. What the other person is doing depends on my hands: if I have chained hands, but the other person does not, he will use his hands, when I have free hands, the other person will use his head.

Movement/Imitation/Interpretation/Frith: For example, a subject should move the arms rhythmically up and down while they are watching another person, moving the arms rhythmically sideways.
This shows that we unconsciously tend to imitate others.
N.B.: when the person moving sideways was replaced by a robot, the unconscious imitation did not happen.
