Part: 1 Self-Inflicted Common Problems > Patterns and Predictions

Chapter 3. Patterns and Predictions

Did you read your horoscope today? Maybe you prefer having your palm read, spreading the tarot cards, or analyzing tea leaves?

People naturally look for patterns and consequences in their daily lives. Someone notices a pattern and an ensuing consequence. This person tells a friend, who also sees the pattern, and a future superstition is born.

People are good at seeing patterns and consequences where none exist.
