Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey (Episode 3)

Best thing we had going for us was our intelligence, especially our gift for pattern recognition, sharpened over eons of evolution. The ones who were good at spotting prey and predator, telling poisonous plants from the nourishing ones, they had a better chance to live and reproduce. We're especially good at finding patterns, even when they aren't really there something known as "false pattern recognition."

We hunger for significance, for signs that our personal existence is of special meaning to the universe. To that end, we're all too eager to deceive ourselves and others, to discern a sacred image in a grilled cheese sandwich or find a divine warning in a comet.
