On more advanced level aite will help tori less and less, until the point where tori must really take the balance of aite. Aite at the same time will not allow himself to be forced off balance and takes ukemi to prevent loss of balance (i.e. loss of control).
How can tori ever know whether he really is able to take ukes balance?

If you get thrown by a skilled person, you can't prevent from loosing control, you just can prevent from getting hurt.

As aite you should not BE thrown, you escape the technique by taking ukemi.
If you practice aikido as a form of contact dance, it might work this way.

A more skilled tori will break your balance, control you, throw you and pin you on the ground. In that case you are not the one who determines the action.
