And what happens, is sometimes, in order to explain something such as a verb whose meaning is to do, or run etc, which is hard to put into words, when generalize it as a thing. This goes back to my orginal example. But since that thing and the context of the sentence is really just explaining the meaning, it is understood that running is not literally a thing, but well, running.
That is why in the sentence " Bob is running" I think about a person(bob) running(doing something)., not the 2 things. Right?
