Pilot and co-pilot.

Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.

One’s life is like an aircraft with a pilot and a co-pilot. The pilot has a flight schedule but his co-pilot has other ideas and is doing his best to overcome the wishes of his pilot. The aircraft, therefore, does not keep to its scheduled path and responds to whichever of its two pilots has greater influence. However, this aircraft will not crash; it will merely weather many storms before the pilot regains control and brings it to a safe landing.

  1. OR – as is most definitely happening now – as a result of the un-forseen consequences of consequences of complex systems – and the inability of the most advanced “training simulators” to account for every possible eventuality – neither the pilot or the co-pilot or any number of same in the cockpit can be guaranteed to regain control of a “fly-by-wire” aircraft and bring it to a safe landing !!!
