But I’ve never seen the Icarus story as a lesson about the limitations of humans. I see it as a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.

Many software systems have an overwhelming amount of complexity added by developers using numerous frameworks and libraries for only small pieces of functionality inherent in each. Do you really need an ORM for a simple application with a handful of database queries? Do you really need to use a MVC framework for a simple website or application? Simplicity has been forgotten. Only introduce structure, generalisation and abstractions as you design, build and recognise the need. Use modularisation to divvy up work if you’re working in a team. Don’t build for hypothetical future use cases. Learn when and when not to use frameworks and libraries. Build the minimal functionality that covers your specs.
