Yeah I can see these patterns whenever I tune in. Doing so can cause me to almost instantly fall asleep, in fact. (And I am otherwise an insomniac). I always thought of it as my brain processing visual data, and that the more pronounced it gets, the more exhausted / "full" my mind is thus the more in need of its time to just rest / process.
