I hope this makes sense I tried to explain what I've noticed to the best of my abilities
(Human brains) are pattern-recognition machines, adept at detecting signals that enhance or threaten survival amid a very noisy world.... (by) associating the causal connections between A and B.
Unfortunately, the system has flaws...
Consider a few cases of false pattern recognition: the face of the Virgin Mary on a grilled cheese sandwich; the face of Jesus on an oyster shell... if you scan enough noise, you will eventually find a signal, whether it is there or not.
