Is Our Mind A Machine Learning Algorithm?

When we think about our mind, it is much like an ML algorithm. We feed our mind certain data, in the form of stories we tell ourselves, the experiences we have, beliefs, things we read or watch, the music we listen to and the ideas we get from the people we interact with.  In feeding our mind this data, we form a belief system and pick the next data point which best matches the belief system we have formed based on the information that our mind has received from us.  So for example, if we have a series of positive experiences with working out, our brain develops a neural pathway which associates pleasure with physical exercise.
