Title: Pareidolia
Post by: b_lumenkraft on June 01, 2019, 11:09:08 AM
Pareidolia
From Wikipedia:

Quote
Pareidolia (/pærɪˈdoʊliə/ parr-i-DOH-lee-ə) is the tendency to interpret a vague stimulus as something known to the observer, such as seeing shapes in clouds, seeing faces in inanimate objects or abstract patterns, or hearing hidden messages in music.

Common examples are perceived images of animals, faces, or objects in cloud formations, ...

Well, some of us are looking at satellite images and clouds from above on a daily basis. I think it should be entertaining if we share, what our brain makes of things.

I had a blog post on this, back in 2011: Arctic Faces (https://neven1.typepad.com/blog/2011/04/arctic-faces.html).

Pareidolia is fun!

I thought those were a llama (I started typing lama, whoops) and a seal.  I see "lineations" in the Petermann (https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,53.msg184436.html#msg184436) Glacier tongue!  :)

I don't know if lineations in a glacier qualify, but hey, who am i to judge. Could be a snake also, right? ;)

I do see the Llama (as in Lloyd) but i don't see the seal.

Well spotted by Niall Dollard here:

Beautiful sentinel image (dated 030619) of the blue ice at the head of Tanquary Fiord, north central Ellesmere Island.

Reminds me of a leopard's head.

Title: Re: Pareidolia
Post by: kassy on June 20, 2019, 11:44:36 PM
And that is where it breaks down for me...

Long ago in the Netherlands we had Wordt Vervolgd on TV. It was a TV show about comics and it had an item with kids imitating the voices one of their three heroes.

These were Donald Duck quacking a bit. Then Road Runner. One small kid just said 'miep miep zoef' which was sort of accurate even if it was just the text without the sound effect. It became a running gag in my family. The third one was that Woody Woodpecker but I can't remember the look or sound. It took me years even to remember WW was the third one in the contest (i cheated and asked my family who the third was).

So I don't see WW there but that is just the limits of pareidolia...
Title: Re: Pareidolia
Post by: Neven on June 20, 2019, 11:54:23 PM
Ha, I remember Wordt Vervolgd, with Han Peekel.  ;D

Here's what WW looks like:

Post by: Tor Bejnar on June 25, 2019, 04:03:03 PM
Fortunately for me, with the rarest of exceptions, the faces I see every day are attached to my friends, neighbors, coworkers, family and Houdi (my wife's 21 year old cat, which I call an elephant, but I think you don't want to here that story).

OK:  I grew up a 'dog person', partly because the several cats we had all died young.  So when my wife and kids got Houdi (after Houdini because, as a kitten, he would climb the textured wall paper to the ceiling), I was excused from caring for him because "I hate cats" (or so I said - you know, it's a political thing).  Well, the kids grew up and left home (all in their 30's now - I should be grateful).  My wife regularly 'teases' me by asking if I love Houdi, so I have come to reply, "Yes I do, because he is an elephant."  Houdi is grey in color, so why not? And I do 'love' elephants (I even receive an "elephants - 'good news'" weekly Google e-mail).  With the special needs of an older cat, I do a fair amount of care for him (the 3 kids in town don't come around on a twice-daily basis to do what they promised 21 years ago - sigh … kids these days!), but that's okay because I love elephants (and my wife).
