But the knowing doesn 't exclude the possibility that you actually cannot
swim, a performance, the swimming iself is necessary to make from a
shear thought an actual fact.
You need the practice, you must actually swim to say I can swim.
I can perfectly known how to fly a plane, just by theorizing, reading
books and watch video's, but unless I actually fly one I will ' never '

People has certain reflexes if they stumble into water to ' swim ', but
the actual fact of swimming is quite something different from knowing
how. I can perfectly know how to swim but still drown.
Little kids thrown into the water will express the swimming- behaviors
in an automatically way, and they will 'swim '.
Later in life we seem to have forgotten to express this ability.
For it to be an actual fact we need to confront some bounderies which
are blocking the apparatus. There are some effects attached to the
actual fact of swimming we need to overcome for being able to swim
in the true sense of the word.
