Awesome post and wholeheartedly agree. When something is on your mind, instances of that thing will "pop out" at you as you're going through your day. We're all equipped with pattern recognition and I think it has something to do with learning cause and effect. In some, it's overcharged or they may suffer from apohenia. I like spotting patterns in license plates while I'm on the road. It's a great way to pass the time in traffic. However, I don't attribute any necessary meaning to any patterns that pop in the license plates because 1. most of the time, I'm forcing the patterns through numerology and 2. it's extremely unlikely that license plates would be a reflection of some over arching cosmic pattern. We all can see patterns in the randomness but its whether we can rationally attribute meaning to it that makes a difference.
The 41-year-old from Tacoma, Washington used to mostly be interested in working out and partying when muggers beat him outside a karaoke club for his $99 leather jacket. Now he sees complex formulas everywhere and turns them into diagrams.
The diagrams turned out to be fractals, small portions of a visual representation for Pi that are similar to the whole image. Everywhere he looks, he sees formulas such as the Pythagorean Theorem.

I'm not afraid that Chris is going to run out and buy a gun. On the contrary, I really feel for him. There was one night when I was on the road where every license plate had strings of E's. EEE ### , ### EEE. It wasn't just one car. It was probably 6 or 7 cars all near each other and it really threw me for a loop. What is the probability of that happening? Pretty darn slim, lol. Not going to lie, it made me feel a little panicky because it just blew my mind. In my extraordinary E event (EEE!), i think I came close to just a little bit like how Chris does. For Chris, I think his entire world is like my EEE moment and that must be really scary. I feel for him and really just want to help him.
