What do you do every morning on autopilot? Drive to work? Your morning shower routine? A 30 minute run?
Having to figure these things out every morning would be exhausting. New route to work every day? Getting cleaned up in a different order every day? Changing the duration and path for your run every day?
Same thing with making breakfast.
Figure out 1 breakfast to make. Turn on autopilot. And basically, go back to sleep.
Just like the real pilots.
