Any Idea what Pareidolia means ?
I did not know till I googled and found out the meaning ,when I started searching for how and why the Human beings are capable of weird imaginations of things that we see and ….I stumbled upon this terminology.
According to rationalwiki
Pareidolia is the phenomenon of recognizing patterns, shapes, and familiar objects in a vague and sometimes random stimulus.
It’s the result of your brain trying to “make sense” of input that really has no sense to find in it.
This is seen often in inkblot tests, where random splatters of ink suggest different images to different people (look, it’s a conspiracy: they’re all deliberately made to look like vaginas!) but also in cases of people seeing visions, ghosts, and other likenesses in what are actually just random patterns that happen to look like those things.
It’s part of the recurring discussion of representation in art ( The Treachery of Images) and is a fundamental component to understanding the philosophy behind modern art
It’s a psychological phenomenon that causes some people to see or hear a vague or random image or sound.
Seeing animals in clouds,or a face or rabbit in the moon are examples of Pareidolia.
