Two friends met after five years. One has become a poet & an aficionado of literature. The other has become a businessman. They were happy upon sharing their experiences, they have had in past years. Poet, being excited to share his knowledge, asked his friend to say 'shayaris'.
Businessman: It's not my bailiwick; I couldn't know more except GST in past quinquennium.

Poet: I can understand but try to say something in response; let's go one-on-one.

Businessman: Ok.

Poet: Lemme share few shayaris of #MirzaGhalib.

Businessman: Go ahead!

Banter started.

The world as you experience it through your senses is not an accurate rendition of the world, but a subjective representation of reality – a *hallucination* – filtered and constructed by your brain.
This hallucination, and the way that your brain constructs it, is optimized for survival in a very specific environment – the African savanna, tens of thousands of years ago. It is not optimized for the modern human living in a modern environment.
Since the environment has changed so much, your brain isn't always very useful anymore. It's like a stone-age tool in the modern world. And this makes your brain very susceptible to manipulation, exploitation, and hacking.
