"We are all under an ego-driven temptation to project our private thoughts out onto the real world, by supposing that the creations of one's own imagination are real properties of Nature, or that one's own ignorance signifies some kind of indecision on the part of Nature" (Jaynes 1989, 7)

He (E. T. Jaynes) claimed that probability theory led to fallacious thinking about the properties of nature. Probability is not an inherent characteristic of anything in nature, but it actually indicates a deficit of facts or knowledge.

Why are we apt to anthropomorphize non-human objects? It's likely hard-wired by evolution. The explanation often goes something like this: In our hunter-gatherer days, if we heard a rustle in the nearby bushes, we were better off concluding that it was something with a mind (like a tiger) out to get us. We'd run away, and that made us more likely to survive. Withholding judgment on the matter until more evidence was gathered would have been the more rational conclusion to draw -after all, it's likely just the wind--but given that it occasionally would be a hungry tiger, drawing the rational conclusion would make one less likely to survive.
