The paper refers to the brain’s capacity for planning and its role. Planning is in progress on several levels of difficulty and time horizons. The existence of two independent centres for information processing has been proposed and named “strategist” and “reviewer”. The strategist is responsible for planning on the highest levels of difficulty, while the reviewer serves as an evaluating unit. Precise anatomical localization of the strategist and reviewer is probably impossible due to their diffuse character. The hypothesis has been formulated that consciousness is a psychological space which enables planning within the time horizon of the individual’s life or comparable long periods. Contact between particular centres is unequal, with domination of the reviewer\'s influence on the strategist mainly through emotions. Between the strategist and the reviewer runs a permanent interaction, generating permanent stress. It has been called the “gradient of permanent dissatisfaction”. After achieving success in realization of plans created by the strategist, a state of satisfaction occurs due to adjustment between the strategist and reviewer through a decrease of the gradient of permanent dissatisfaction. After this the tension between the strategist and reviewer increases again and the reviewer forces the strategist to make new, more perfect plans. The proposed theory of the strategist – reviewer has been verified according to typical situations from life.
