This makes me smile. It also makes me think of my favourite pyramid scheme.
Bottom line is this - we instinctively look for meaning and patterns. It's a glass half-full/half-empty kind of thing.
There's a difference between ascribing meaning and developing understanding, though. Which is why science is, literally, counter-intuitive.
It's the instinct, not the image, that matters - until you become conscious of the difference.
