That's when everything is going according to Plan A. When Plan C (aka direct mode, always talking about the 777/787) comes into action the PFCs get out of the way. If your day keeps getting more and more interesting and now you're down to Plan D (aka forgot to pay the electricity bill), the stabiliser and a couple of spoilers are mechanically linked to the cockpit controls, which gives you pitch and roll authority (+ yaw via differential thrust and as secondary effect of roll).
I am afraid the rest of your post is too far out into nonsense territory to merit a reply.
