Tessellation Figures (6)
Human brain works on patterns.It builds statistical models of every input the brain gets(the floor tiles of different colors). Then the brain uses the models to predict what happen next, so it would be ready to react accordingly. Sometimes the patterns and theories fail, and people need to invent a new theory. That's why you see several layers of tiles one over the other. And still the world that surrounds us is so vast that we can't explain everything.
