But if we compare our thinking to what we see in animal behavior, I think it's fair to draw general conclusions on basic mental processes common to both.
That is exactly what I'm saying. Whenever we talk about "thought" or "using math", what we are doing is trafficking in general conclusions about processes common to our minds and whatever other minds we are including. This means that we are always looking in the mirror when we talk about what thought is.
