oh, I See…

I remember, as a child, we used to lay in the grass and stare up at the clouds in the sky. We’d try to pick out images from their shapes; they usually came out as animals. Do you ever see things in other things? Like a leopard in the middle of an orchid? IDK why I was surprised, but I just learned there’s a word for that. Pareidolia.

/ˌpæraɪˈdəʊlɪə/
noun

1. the imagined perception of a pattern or meaning where it does not actually exist, as in considering the moon to have human features

 

There’s this article, or just Google pareidolia and search by images. Entertaining, no? So, take some time out to lay in the grass or on the beach and stare up into the sky. You never know what you’ll see…
