Jaguar, you're finding images that aren't there again
. It took a double check for me to see it. Just because something looks like it, when views
a certain way, doesn't mean it is it. I mean, look at all those potatoes, tree-stumps, and moldy pieces of bread that people see the Virgin Mary in.
We're automattically looking for these image similarities in our brains - but we gotta be careful not to confuse them.
It's easy to mistake pictures, because a picture is 2-d, and so we're missing a portion of "depth" to the picture, which creates many optical
illusions. Also, the lighting in that picture ends up highlighting the rock that forms the eye of the cuddle-fish looking rock.
Finally, if it was a dead cuddle-fish, we wouldn't see it. Cuddle-fish have no bones in their bodies except their beaks - and so if something died,
it would not leave a pile of bones, but would completely decompose. Only a flash-fossilization (can be caused by pyrocastic flows, for example) would
preserve the shape of something like this. And then we would only discover the fossil after we dug it out.
