In a sense Bluesma, you aver what I have said, in a roundabout way. Submission is not in question, really...what seems to be being discussed is FREE WILL.
The illustration of the horse and rider, is really illustrating a symbiotic FREE WILL association/contract...otherwise, according to what I hear you saying, humans have no real FREE WILL, but horses do.?!
One of my observances was that, for this reason (symbiotic contracts) are necessary for the uplift of the human race...it breeds personal responsibility in a social milleau. The symbiotic contract does exactly this, like the 'individual' players in a sporting side, a corporation etc...they may all have 'mini-agendas' of thier own, but the common goal is fulfilled by accepting that many minds and hands are needed to achieve this common goal, while fulfilling personal agendas, all based on conscious and unconscious FREE WILL choices.
As I age, I become more and more drawn to the conclusion that we have less of it than we tend to think. It becomes more and more obvious that most of our choices and decisions actually happen subconsciously, and our conscious self simply takes credit for it, and makes up explanations and reasons after that.
