The servomechanism triggering the MEC1 may be further elucidated: It may be seen at work at the junction of top-down and bottom-up processes, where the promptings of human conscience (or in contemporary terms, the promptings of the Holy Spirit indwelling the believer) interacts with the human appeal to a higher order of processing so as to be empowered to do the right thing.
