Let’s say you have arms. You can move them. They have hands at the end that can grasp things and maybe even have individual digit control. That affords you engagement with the nearby environment so far as the arms can extend.
But if you have legs or other mobility, you can move away from your spot and change perspectives and work with items or people in other nearby locations.
And if you can talk and use words, you can communicate needs and intents and if you can listen, you can receive needs and see if it’s within your capabilities to accomplish.
If you get a weird feeling when you see something nearby that’s broken, can you fix it with what you have? If you can’t, can you ask someone who can?
etc.
Or is this vague gossip about people who are hypocritical?
“don’t be like those people over there”?
Because that’s not actionable. It’s gossip.
