I notice that in large groups there are kind of stereotyped complex visuospatial patterns in the human social interactions. I particularly notice this when I'm on drugs. It's hard for me to think of a particular example (unsurprisingly I imagine), but in a general sense, you can look at the people in a crowd and kind of break them up like they are on a grid, and pretend they are lines in the grid boxes, with a front and a back. You can see the relative positions of the lines to each other and how they are facing, and there are stereotyped configurations for different social contexts.
