Collecting: seagulls, supermarkets & marilyn monroe
“There is a condition, known as apophenia, which is the tendency to see patterns in a collection of meaningless data. In its most trivial application, it is looking up and seeing lions and bears in the random contours of clouds. But it can also produce the hysteria that gathers around a sighting of the Virgin Mary on a piece of burnt toast or the inevitable fate of the hapless gambler who believes he is on a lucky streak.”
