The human brain always looks for patterns and logical explanation of the world. If you glance at the picture, you will try subconsciously to arrange the rectangles into a straight grid. But they are not straight. Some go this way, some stick out. Yes, Nature has its own laws, but it has so many exceptions that the exceptions become the new law. There is no justice in the nature, only a chance. You can draw a yellow card, you can get lucky and draw a white card (or no card at all). But there are cases when you get the black card. It is not fair, it is random.
