The Seanchan believe in omens, signs from nature that help read the Pattern and fate. Are these real? We see examples of omens coming true, but Mat also thinks about a time when an omen was false and Tuon claimed Selucia must have counted the ants wrong (I just read that in either Crossroads of Twilight or Knife of Dreams I think). The westlanders think omens are ridiculous, but the Seanchan think things like ta'veren are fake and we know for a fact as readers that they're not. Is this an example of knowledge that the Seanchan have and Mat similarly thinks are fake, or are they really just superstitions?
