Have you ever seen faces, forms or figures in mundane places or objects? Take, for example, the sad man on the moon - a classic case of pareidolia.


Show Full Text

Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon involving the perception of patterns, especially of rudimentary faces, where none actually exist.
