Humans see what they want to see-Rick Riordan


Oh! My Imagination!

“Imagination decides everything” Blaise Pascal

As I was watching my creation, I felt, I am seeing a flying bird (side view) with the Sun becoming its eye and the white clouds in front acting as its beak.

You may not agree with me. It’s OK.

Do you think I am weird?

I have this strange habit of imagining faces and shapes whenever I get an opportunity. (pareidolia)

Is this a psychological problem?

What is pareidolia?

“The human brain is optimized to recognize faces, which could also explain why we are so good at picking out meaningful shapes in random patterns.

This phenomenon, pareidolia, could be responsible for a host of otherwise unexplained sightings, such as the face of the Virgin Mary on a toasted cheese sandwich.”

New Scientist

I guess the whole thing boils down to perception

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”
 W.B. Yeats

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. I can always tell when I’m tapping into my creative (hmm, I don’t know what to call it – impulses, edge, side?) But it’s happened again. I can see the bird when I read your post but I didn’t see the bird. I did see the eye, so im glad we both saw that … so what did I see? A massive, monster, giant worm gobbling up all the clouds. Not sure if it’s good – giving us clear, blue skies; or sinister, up to something else 🤔
