Once again, say it with me now: p-a-r-e-i-d-o-l-i-a

No, the image at left is not the an apparition of the Virgin Mary. It's just your brain fooling you. It's not magic, it's a misinterpreted brain and nothing more. So, once again, folks, say it with me: pareidolia; that's /pæraɪˈdoʊliə/.


SGU 5 by 5, by the way, recently briefly explained the concept of pareidolia - listen [mp3] and be amazed.
