Resembling the dentin and sponge in the previous slide, this view of the surface of the moon shows various impact craters large and small in a seemingly random pattern.
We began with an example of pareidolia, a condition in which we perceive unlike objects as being similar. We end with another psychological phenomenon, known as apophenia, which is a tendency to ascribe meaningful patterns to random data, a condition that could certainly apply to the last three slides.
It takes no small amount of effort, imagination and a little luck to find the meaningful patterns in nature, the ones that reveal the connections between, say, an animal small enough to fit in the palm of a human hand and a galaxy some 30 million light-years away. The only way to do it is to keep your eyes open.
