Philosophical porn: perception is not reality

This TED Talk literally blew my mind. Donald Hoffman is not only saying that we are fooled by our perception of reality, but that "according to evolution by natural selection, an organism that sees reality as it is will never be more fit than an organism of equal complexity that sees none of reality but is just tuned to fitness" (from interview in The Atlantic). We have grown not to see reality as it is at all! And that even includes atoms, particules, our brains, neurons, space and time in general. Wow. This is unreal.
