What thoughts are made up of

In their paper "what thoughts are made of" (in Embodied Grounding, edited by Gun and Smith, Cambridge U. Press, 2008, pg 108) Boroditsky and Prinz detail a view of the nature of thought which is very similar to my own (as it occurs in my artificial intelligence, Asa H).  They also suggest that teaching an agent a natural language (as I have been doing with Asa H) may enhance the agent's level of intelligence.

One difference is that Boroditsky and Prinz discuss representations (of concepts) in terms of feature lists whereas I employ vectors and allow each feature (vector component) to have variable activation.
