Apophenia is the tendency to find relationships between things or events that have no connection to each other. Semiotic-Pareidoliapophenia explores metaphor and magic in abstract-asemic writing. The experience of reading meaningful signs and symbols in rock lines, paint splatters, leaf mold, skid marks, scars, cracks. Finding connection and pattern in random data.
