Dangerous electrical wiring - AMI sample photo from a home inspection

What are we trying to achieve here?

We’re not sure exactly what’s going on here with this electrical setup, but it looks like the breaker on the left was tripping and someone “solved” the problem by running three strands of magnet wire to an adjacent breaker. This would certainly stop the first breaker from tripping. Of course, it could also cause the house to burn down.
