Do You Secretly See Faces In Things?

Have you heard about the chicken nugget shaped like George Washington that sold on ebay for £5,000? Or the decade old cheese toastie said to bear the image of the Virgin Mary which fetched $28,000? How about the chapatti with the image of Jesus Christ which attracted 20,000 Christians to Bangalore where it was baked? 

From animals in clouds to religious icons, if you’ve seen faces or forms where there are none, then you’ve experienced the psychological phenomenon that is pareidolia. 

According to Dictionary.com pareidolia is “the imagined perception of a pattern or meaning where it does not actually exist, as in considering the moon to have human features”. 

Your wonderful brain is constantly trying to make sense of the world around it and sometimes the results are curiously charming.

Just a pear having a little look to see what’s going on.
