Pareidolia is fun: Seeing Look Alikes In Curious Places

“You can’t just look at a cloud and say, ‘What an interesting lump of air molecules’. You have to say, ‘that looks a lot like a bear’. Or, especially, ‘a face’. We have face-recognition software built in.” David McRaney

Not a lot of people have heard the term pareidolia. But I’m sure to say that almost everyone has experienced it many times.

Nearly anyone who looks at the Moon say they see two eyes, a nose and a mouth…that’s pareidolia.

It’s the imagined perception of a pattern or meaning where it does not actually exist. It is thought that pareidolia is a side effect of the human brain needing to very quickly recognize certain objects such as human faces or bodies.

Seeing animal shapes in clouds, or a face in the moon, are examples of pareidolia.
