It might sound not clear, but this is something similar to cognitive dissonance in a sense. In CD, after learning a certain fact, that does not correspond to the certain reality you believe in, you change certain information in your brain in order to fit your reality to that concept (I think so) But this question applies not to change of things, but seeing repetitve patterns in them after learning certain fact about them. Ex. After learning that knife is sharp, you see other knives as sharp objects too.

I think it is that our brain has a conclusion and we try to shape the information that’s presented to match that information. It’s done subconsciously and we can’t really affect it.
