27 Pictures That Contain More Meaning Than We Think at First Glance
Pareidolia is the tendency to see something new in well-known images. This explains why we sometimes see a familiar figure in a cloud in the sky, long fingers in tree roots, or a human face in a flower. Our brains are always trying to compare the images that we see to everything we have stored in our memories.
