Patternicity

We are pattern-loving animals. Noticing a face or a turtle in clouds, a story
in random data, and putting together unrelated events to weave a beautiful
conspiracy theory has become our favorite pass time. In other words,
we connect the dots when they aren’t supposed to be.

Once we are stuck in a pattern, it locks us to think in a certain way
and biases creep into the thought process. We can no longer see things
for what they are. Hence to get things straight and come up with new insights
we need to deliberately disrupt the existing patterns we have and do believe in.
