To survive we needed to recognise patterns in the reality around us. And there are two mistakes we can make.
We can fail to recognise patterns that are there, or we can see patterns that are not there.
It can prove fatal not to recognise patterns that are there (not to see the tiger hiding in the bush is fatal), but it is not fatal to see patterns that are not there (such as patterns in the clouds or the stars).
And so over millennia we have survived seeing patterns that are not there. For instance, we see patterns in astrology that are not there, and we see patterns in mbti that are not there.
