31 Hilarious Times Pareidolia Played With Our Brain

Our brain is such a mystery.

The pareidolia phenomenon is when our brain perceives visual or auditory cues as something entirely different than what it is. In this case, we’re going on pareidolia triggered by vision. The most common type is usually the human face illusion that easily appears when an object seems to just have two eyes and a mouth.

But we’re also absolutely blown away by how colors and blurry views from the fog create some really unreal pictures!
