Abstract
THE PROFERRED THESIS BEHIND THIS PROPOSAL IS THAT A PILOT DOES NOT ASSIMILATE DATA FROM HIS AIRCRAFT COMPREHENSIVELY AND AT ELECTRONIC SPEEDS,, AND THIS CAN BE A CONTRIBUTING FACTOR TO MANY AIRCRAFT ACCIDENTS. ACCOMPANYING THIS STATEMENT IS THE NOTION THAT A PILOT CANNOT INGEST DATA AT "ELECTRONIC SPEEDS". THIS IS SIMPLY NOT THE CASE; WHAT A PILOT SEES TODAY IS NOT WHAT HE COULD SEE, GIVEN THE CORRECT INSTRUMENTATION. IT IS SUBMITTED THAT ONE PROPERTY OF A MAN WHICH HASNOT BEEN EXPLOITED IS HIS ADVANCED PATTERN RECOGNIZING ABILITY. THE PROPOSAL TEXT WILL POINT OUT THAT A MAN CAN RECOGNIZE A SIMPLE GEOMETRIC OBJECT, LIKE A HEXAGON, EASILY WITHIN MILLISECONDS.IF THE IMPACT OF BACKGROUND DATA CAN BE MADE TO CAUSE DEFORMATION OF THE OBJECT, THIS WILL ALSO BE RECOGNIZED WITHIN MILLISECONDS. THE BASIS OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TRANSMISSION OF DATA FROM A DYNAMIC SYSTEM INTO A MAN'S MIND ALMOST INSTANTLY BY USING THE MAN'S WELL-DEVELOPED PATTERN RECOGNIZING ABILITY TO SEE DATA IN THE DEFORMATION OF A SIMPLE GEOMETRIC FIGURE.
