The act of attempting to explain a series of independent events using a theory that does not logically follow from the observations.
Lois: Peter, I saw a really good deal on this used car in a newspaper.
Peter: Oh no. I knew a guy who bought a used car through a newspaper. Ten years later, BAM! Herpes.

Peter's assumption that one inevitably gets herpes from a used car bought through a newspaper is, generally speaking, illogical, and therefore a phenomenillogical understanding of his experiences.
