Does the HTM model ideomotor response?

I’m new to HTM theory, although I’ve been on the mailing list for quite a while. I’ve also done a little research into hypnosis. I just listened to the white paper on htm theory via text to speech (and some of the htm school youtube videos) and I remember hearing that motor movements are necessarily encoded with the data. Would the reverse also be true, that motor movements must be produced when recalling certain thoughts?

Absolutely. Motor commands are much like predictions your brain is making about other things in its environment. But it just so happens when your brain makes those predictions, they always come true (because your muscles are following out the predictions as commands).
