Apophenia is the experience of seeing patterns or connections in random or meaningless data. This phenomenon was originally described in relation to the distortion of reality present in psychosis, but it has become more widely used to describe this tendency in healthy individuals: it has been suggested that apophenia is a link between psychosis and creativity.
