I will try my best to make homological mirror symmetry into a tautology. The tool to do so is Family Floer cohomology, which produces a "mirror space" from a given Lagrangian torus fibration. Mirror symmetry thus gets reduced to the geometric problem of finding Lagrangian torus fibrations (SYZ program).
