Our Ancestral Mind in the Modern World: An Interview with Satoshi Kanazawa

One example of this is that when we watch a scary movie, we get scared, and when we watch porn we get turned on. We cry when someone dies in a movie. Our brain cannot tell the difference between what’s simulated and what’s real, because this distinction didn’t exist in the Stone Age.
Bloody interesting interview. Go see.
