“A Pareidolic Face”
Yes this is what I was doing when I was out the back of my house with a full moon and a flag pole and all of a sudden they took on a ” TRON” persona; well that is what I called it. Hope you can see my face in the image I decided on today.
This is the full moon just recently. I even videoed this same scene and made the moon move along the bar like a ball. It was a crude amateur video and an after thought.
Pareidolia is patternicity, matrixing or cognitive illusion. There are many schools of thought on the subject. Too many to discuss in this post.
I have “Pareidolia”. Why? This is when we see faces in clouds or electric sockets or in cars or any other obscure place for a face. This occurs because of the general shape of the grill and lights etc. This is pareidolia. Because I spend a lot of time looking at everything that is going on around me with expectancy, I tend to see these images often. When I bring this to the attention of others, they do not share my enthusiasm. Quite often I am left feeling a little silly. Despite the dispute from my peers, I still see enjoying watching out for the next quirky image that jumps out at me.
Pareidolia refers to the human habit of looking for the familiar in the unfamiliar.
