- Walto,It is not belief that makes the object popularly known as Walto.....jump out of the way of an oncoming bus, but the instinct of survival .......hard-wired into the architecture of the object.
Belief is just the sense of a thought that it was "you" who jumped.
Just like, in the case of breathing.......going on moment to moment to moment.
