Patternicity or apophenia is the phenomenon of finding meaningful patterns in random information.
Very often patterns will emerge out of nowhere, or nested within other patterns.
Patternicity is probably fractal in nature and reveals deeper structures in an iterative process.
The images of oil refineries are frightening and evince a sense of foreboding, even without processing them. The horizontal and vertical distortion is a kind of "backmasking", whereby when something is played backwards or turned upside-down, a "satanic" message appears. This is a purely random phenomenon, and is interesting in the sense that the randomization naturally reveals the sinister characteristics of industrial structures, although some of the patterns are even cute!
