This is the mysterious function of your brain that attempts to assign some sort of self-orientated meaning to any and all events that it experiences - the "center of the universe" problem, that all humans experience.

The reality is that this mechanism is in many cases faulty, most things have no intrinsic meaning, and are not even connected in any way.

But we still find ourselves pondering "how does such and such apply to me?!" whenever something happens.

You know it! But we do it anyway.

Sometimes this function breaks down completely, and starts assigning all sorts of meanings for no reason - this is where you end up with clinical psychiatric cases.. you know the types.. the poor folk who wander homeless in alleys talking to invisible friends and so on.
