PAREIDOLIA

PARE-WHAT-NOW?

Pareidolia : the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern.

 

 

It is a survival skill we developed in our adolescent

days as a species that helped us identify predators

who were trying to be sneaky and blend into their

surroundings.

Although nowadays we are at the top of the Food Chain, but our ability to recognize these same kind of patterns has taken on a more humorous and sometimes paranoid turn. 

Sometimes we see faces in the earth or the clouds. We see faces on Mars. We see faces in our morning slices of toast! In our vegetables. Inanimate objects are now all supposedly haunted because that building over there looks very surprised!
