131 Things That Look Like Other Things (New Pics)

It seems the universe is constantly making fun at our expense. One of the ways it does that is by trying to disorientate us. Whether it’s a rock that looks exactly like a human heart or a cloud formation that disguised itself as a floating ocean, optical illusions are all around us.

The technical term for this “flaw” in our sensory system is pareidolia, which means the tendency for perception to impose a meaningful interpretation on a nebulous stimulus, usually visual, so that one sees an object, pattern, or meaning where there is none.

While many of these moments come and go, as Bored Panda showed in our previous publications here and here, some people manage to take a picture of whatever it is that’s tricking their brains. Continue scrolling to check out the latest examples of pareidolia that we found!

This is at the end of lake Cakora in brooms head. It happened after the storm at the beach side of the lake broke out. It drained most of the water. As it drains out a connecting lake with tea trees on the banks, the high tides push the tea tree oily water back up the lake to create these stunning natural masterpieces.
