Imagine the busiest airport in the world. During the holiday season. In a snowstorm. The air traffic controller is never more urgently needed. Managing the arrivals and departures of dozens of planes on multiple runways.
Guiding planes through flight paths and impending storms. Focussing, holding, and working with information, switching gears, and avoiding distractions. Making decisions in light of new information, revising plans, and staying calm in the storm. This is our brain’s Symbolic Thinking function.
