Dream believe acheive succeed .
Actions start with thought.

Is it thought by design
Or designed thought.
And Arthur I don't have to demonstrate anything.
Belief with action.
Ask any religious person if they believe
they will give there life for there belief's
Any invention started with a thought plus action.
Your missing the point.
