Our Inner "Mission Control"

To have a fully automated system such as self-driving automobiles and such, a great deal of programming would be necessary to adjust for various changes in conditions. Even more so for a fully automated flight system; autopilot can only do just so much, and human pilots need to be nearby. A while back, I saw a program about a robot with a human shape reaching down to pick up an object and straighten back up again. If the object was moved even slightly, it was unable to complete its task and substantial additional programming would be required because it couldn't adjust.

Similarly, notifications and claims to health insurance companies (as well as letters in the post office) are scanned for OCR, then processed through special software. The machine can only do so much, and it takes a human mind to make corrections so it can be processed more accurately. Some changes just won't work in it.

Complex, fully-automated, long-term systems are still beyond the reach of human technology. However, we were created with our own amazingly complex "Mission Control" center.

We have our own Mission Control Center built inside us that adjusts to immediate situations as well as long-term growth and development. Such as system shows the intelligence of the Director who created everything, and shows the absurdity of fungus-to-flight-controller evolution.
Almost everyone has heard of growth hormones, estrogen, testosterone, and adrenaline, and most people are familiar with the exciting effects these hormones have on influencing the way we look or perform. So when talking about the endocrine system, it’s tempting to jump to a discussion of a hormone and its mechanism of action. However, our bodies need some process for slow and steady maintenance and growth. When we approach it as a fascinating display of how vital control systems are designed, then investigating the way the endocrine system generally exerts its type of steady, long-term guidance over growth, development, and daily homeostasis is also exciting.
