The devil himself said it best:

Hmm. How do we humans cope with all these opposing rules? If
we created an AI with all the ridiculous, convoluted and
opposing rules that we humans live with on a daily basis, it
would blow chunks.

How do our minds possibly cope with such illogical rules
without blowing chunks?

We cope by re-inventing reality.  We cope by convincing
ourselves that truths are not true and lies are true.

We cope by designing languages that obfuscate globals behind
pseudo interfaces so we can get farm fuzzy feelings in our
tummy, then we can "secretly" break the rule when non-one is

By doing this we convince ourselves that we are "pure".

HUMANS: What a pathetic bunch of slaves!
