Of course, I thought that was the assumption when people say "lookup
table". I.e. something which maps all sensorics to all motorics, including
the inner state. All of it, for all cases which can occur in human life.

Ahh, you're cheating. Introducing conditionals, and things. A lookup table
is just a dictionary, assigning some very large binary vector to another
very large binary vector.
