    Yeah... funny how the brain tries to make sense of things. I have a couple of faces in my bathroom floor. I sometimes see animals and Bigfoot. Every now and then ya' see what looks like hamburgers on guitars :)

    Yup.
    I've seen or imagined all kinds of stuff.
    My childhood bedroom door had grain that looked like a duck or goose.
    Thanks for listening.

    Our brains are wired to find order in chaos, even if it isn't there. It's one of the main reasons we own the Earth.

    Pretty funny really on a website dedicated to a device designed to order sound waves into complimentary wavelengths with ordered timing, that we find more desirable than random noise.

    Yep, several years ago I saw a sunburst '59 Les Paul reissue on ebay or or gbase that in the middle of the maple figure had an amazing devil head in the flame. I thought someone really ought to buy it and build a career out of that particular guitar and it's super spooky mojo.

    Pareidolia is a pretty interesting phenomenon, psychologically-speaking. Like Nick JD mentioned, it's most likely due to the fact that our brains are very pattern-based and constantly try to attempt to find order in randomness. I'd imagine it's the reason why things like "seeing the number 11 everywhere" is so common.

    I've had a piece of birch firewood standing by my woodstove in NW ONT because it looks like a witch in a hat.

    I get the phenomenon, but my brain tends to reject the ordering of random patterns.

    Like Trevs pics of the lovely figured swamp ash Tele body, I didn't see the face 'till the next pics, and even then I really want to not see a small symbol in a bigger area of beauty.

    What does this mean??
