Video about Strange Paranoias

This video of a presentation by Michael Shermer about common beliefs and patterns we see in simple things around us. I think in our world it makes a valid point. Our life is a familiar pattern, we follow habits and patterns everyday. A salesman who gets the door slammed on his face in all the first five calls he makes will give up sales for sure. Ask any salesperson. He will never go back to sales, at least, I didn't. What we believe as true, and how we are deluded by things that don't exist. When we look around we see a lot of people who need compassion, understand and help, not too great on the mental health department. Can say this is the patternicity that Shermer talks about. View the video if you have the time. Hope to arouse your curiosity. Happy viewing.
