i was recently watching The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Comedy Central, and i noticed something unusual i had not noticed before.

i noticed how the backdrop of the flat world strongly resembles the profile of a primate facing eastward. i saw how the stretch of pacific coastline of both continents of north and south america resembled the profile of an ape or chimp lookinbg to the right.

i noticed how much the pacific ocean resembles the profile of an ape, or chimp, but sort of what looks like a primate. look from alaska to the southern tip of south america, from a little bit of a distance, and the pacific ocean resembles a primate facing eastward with it's head around the alaska shoreline, it's eye around oregon, washington state, and it's lower chin on the south american continent for the most part.

What do you suppose the odds of two continents and the pacific ocean forming what so closely resembles the dominant species on this planet without any intelligent intervention of any kind?

please feel free to take the time to look at what it is i'm reffering to:

www.thedailyshow.com...

thank you for your time, i only hope you find this thread interesting. whether you see it or not.

Well , I don't really see a CLEAR image of a monkey there... it somewhat looks like it, in an obscure way.
There are probably a lot of people who see something else in it.

But maybe I am not looking right, make a screenshot and outline your sighting


Will be back.

Cheers

i guess imagine this thing's head looking to your right and compare it to the entire pacific coast of both south and north america on a flat world map:

I don't see it at all. But that is beside the point.

There are two things you need to realize. First, that is not an entirely accurate map of the world, but rather an artist's rendition of the world. Second, the human brain is programmed to recognize patterns but we are too good at it. We often misinterpret meaningless data as being significant. It is called pareidolia. It is the same reason people will see Jesus in a piece of toast, the Virgin Mary in soap-bubbles on a window, or Michael Jackson in tree-bark.

As doom above me just said, the map is not a real map and the human brain is programmed to see patterns (especially animal faces for some reason).

It is called Pareidolia and it is something we all suffer from. Countles and pretty out there nutter type stuff has been based on seeing "shapes in the clouds".

Just take on look at all those moon rock or mars rock threads where people "see" all sorts of things.

your opinions are well noted.

my brain also sees patterns in words as well. similar encryptions and encodings when i subject any word or phrase to the same steps.

for instance spelling things out phonetically and reversing the sequence of letters/words seems to produce similiar effects, such as a truism or truisms encoded and encrypted in the words.

i won't go into it here, threads exist about this subject matter already in skunk works.

at any rate, thanks for the input guys.

all contributions are certainly welcome here, but is there anyone that sees the resemblance?

it either resembles a primate or it doesn't to you. that's ok.

but in the case of crop circles, they are circles, and they are in crops.
so no one can argue that they are in fact crop circles.

i can see how the pacific ocean and the western seashore of north and south america can resemble the profile of a primate, gorilla .. ape,..

like a crop circle is a circle in the crops

is the profile of primate comparable to the pacific/americas borders?

it's meant in a rhetorical way, as the observer does have free will, anad i'm not the one to deny people of their opinions, the fact is i learn more from thier opinions.

thanks for the contributions.

You provided a generic link to "thedailyshow" website. However, there are lots of links to lots of videos on that page?

Wouldn't it be nice to say which date/title video you want people to watch, and provide a time index in the video so we can fast forward to the time you want us to look at? I think all of that should be a minimum to provide.

What would be even nicer if not required, would be a screenshot or something posted here to show the image that you see something in.

So I don't know what video or time index you are referring to, but yes, if you see something it's Pareidolia.

Or are you suggesting the creator of the Earth made the Pacific ocean resemble a primate's face for a reason? And if so what do you think that would be?

i can't argue with that. you are right about it being one person's rendition, but the source material was a rendition of a flat map of earth. least i think it was.



Second, the human brain is programmed to recognize patterns but we are too good at it. We often misinterpret meaningless data as being significant.


true, but it doesn't discount the possibility that a pattern wasn't there to recognize before the observer made a choice to interpret the pattern as such.

and perhaps what is interpretted as meaningless and significant to one observer may be interpretted as meaningful to another observer. who has the authority to decide. the majority? that would require conformity in order to adapt and blend in with the majority.

i think in the end it is up to the individual to decide what information is digested and how that informaton fits with other facts. i think that is the way it is because that is the way it seemd.

"It is called pareidolia. "

thanks for the word, pareidolia it may be .....

wow. for the purpose of this thread, since it's my first authored thread under this screen name .... i'll defend my choice to not include such information ....

first, if you had clue one what i had to go through to retrieve and share this information .....

second, considering the ramifications if i am correct about this, whether it resembles a primate, or perhaps did resemble a primate before thousands of years of erosion .....

it could mean intelligence of some measure put it there.

the moral of the story here is ....
1) if you aren't familiar enough with the planet you are on to recognize the planet you are on ...

and

2) if you aren't familiar with the faces of the closest life forms to you on your own planet .....

simple deductive reasoning can tell us you may not recognize another planet, or even other life if you encountered it, since you can't recognize your own planet and your own closest lifeforms.

what are kids being taught in schools this day????



What would be even nicer if not required, would be a screenshot or something posted here to show the image that you see something in.


dumb me. i assumed you would know what earth looks like.
dumb me. i assumed you would know what your closest genetic relatives look like.

rude of me to assume.




Or are you suggesting the creator of the Earth made the Pacific ocean resemble a primate's face for a reason? And if so what do you think that would be?


two spectacular and outstanding questions.

to answer question #1: i'm saying i can see how it does resemble a primate, yes. for what reason or reasons. i'm not sure. but i will ask two questions i think may lead to a possible logical conclusion that parallels the answer in my opinion. Who tamed humanity? Who domesticated humanity? Our own percieved necessity?

to answer question #2: i have ideas. but i'm not 100% sure. free will and all.

sorry for some of the sarcasm and the slightly suggestive words i used. just lettin ats users know i can hang in a debate. don't take too much i say personally. i'm not at war with anyone, just with actions and behaviors, and what avenues of thought threaten us the most, ... again in my opinion.

Isn't the power of suggestion a beautiful thing?

As humans we are built to see patterns in everything, we actually crave a pattern driven existance.

I highly doubt that some force made it look like a Chimp, I don't see it. Now I could be wrong, but I would assume that this would have been noticed when they completed the first world map, since Chimps have been around and what not.

A bit strange, but IMO no conspiracy here.

if i where leaning towards the power of suggestion, which at some level may be true, i've yet to show the profile of some primates and a flat world rendition demonstrating what it is i'm reffering to.

for the moment i'm just "fishing" to see if any contributors here can see it or not, or have seen it. if the entire coastline from alaska to to the southern tip of south america appears to resemble the profile view of a primate facing eastward... is in effect in the eye of the beholder, i must admit.

i do appreciate the input.

but i'd rather see some degree of independant thought here, i'm sure profiles of primates and pictures of them exist on the internet. google.

i'm sure flat world maps exist on the internet. google.

if you can't find either of those things throughout all the information on the internet .... then that would be a conspiracy

I thought I made a polite request, and am still trying to be polite. Is it really that hard to post the date/name of the video on that site you want people to watch? I do have a clue how much effort it takes to post a link because I've done it myself, I didn't find it that hard..


the moral of the story here is ....
1) if you aren't familiar enough with the planet you are on to recognize the planet you are on ...

I know what the earth looks like, and I know what primates look like. You asked us to watch a video, I went to that site you posted a link to, and watched a video but there was no map in it anywhere so I assume that wasn't the video you want people to watch. If you'd like us to watch a particular video, it would be nice to say which one.




What would be even nicer if not required, would be a screenshot or something posted here to show the image that you see something in.

I don't know about rude, but look at what you said in the following conversation:

So you agree that it's not an accurate map of the world. I know what an accurate map of the world looks like, but I have yet to see the rendition that you want us to see. If you want us to spend hours looking through every video on that site to find the right one, instead of taking 1 minute to type the date and title of the video, then yes I consider that rude, and I think the attitude of your reply got a little rude, when you agree the map you refer to isn't an accurate representation of the world, then make a comment about assuming I know what the world looks like. I'm trying to be nice here and I'd appreciate it if you would also try to be nice.

Thanks for the apology, for the sarcasm, I accept it, however wouldn't it be nicer to skip the sarcasm in the first place and then not have to apologize for it?

Yes, I had no trouble finding a flat world map on Google. Hell, I have several of them here at home. And I know what the world looks like, but I just couldn't imagine how there could be a primate face in there. Since you provided a link though, I thought you were linking to a specific image... maybe of the primate face outlined or what have you.

I can see how it vaguely resembles a primate face. Is their anything to it? Hard to say. Pareidolia? Likely, but it is interesting nonetheless. I am glad you posted it.

I appreciate the effort you put into this and congrats on authoring your first post. I don't think the attitude was necessary though. I just wanted to see what you were seeing.

I've been thinking about this thread for a quite a while. (I want to play, but I'll get back to that)
The first thing, I did, since I didn't have map where I read the thread, was to try and picture it. I wasn't having any luck, but it sure got the gears turning.
I opened up a map a little while ago and I was having a really difficult time turning the west coasts of North and South America into a primate looking East. I tilted my head, squinted my eyes...was just about to give up and could faintly make out the profile of a gorilla....a rough one, mind you, but I think I willed it into being.

I was almost dissappointed that it wasn't as pronounced as I would have liked it to be. Your Op made me think of the folders in Windoze, or an icon...a picture that represents the contents of the container...in this case, the primate would be the graphical representation for the higher beings to see from a distance to realize what was inhabiting the planet.
You know, it's just crazy enough to work. It of course, make a lot of assumptions....that a higher being, or visitor from a different world, or observer of our development would be a visually oriented life form....
It sort of reminds me of a petri dish with a label on it....I don't really have to put it under the scope to know that it's supposed to be cryptosporidium.

That would really be sort of funny.
As smart as we are...not much more than a folder on 'galaxy 2.0' containing 'assorted primates.'

Oh really..?


With all the resources available to you, all you see is a primate..?!


How quickly we see what we want rather than what is there!





It's quite obvious you had a predetermined opinion before posting this thread...how dare you!

i think one of those links should work if i did it right ...

yep second link works...

here is a link to a pic of king kong:





now look at the pacific ocean and the western coast of north and south america ....

doesn't it resemble an ape looking eastward (to the right)??

~Keeper


you would assume that observer's subversed by fear and on fear's autopilot would be capable of seeing or noticing such a thing?

perhaps the subconscious adopted fears knows that the probability of it existing at all .... calculating the odds of it .... what variables in what equasion .....

dare i suggest if it does exist then perhaps the easier question would be:

what's the highest number?

Excellent!!!

Thanks for the link and time index my friend!! works great! good job!!

I think I sort of see it, maybe the eye is around CA, and the nose is around the panama canal, and the lower jaw juts out into the bottom half of South America, is that about how you see it?

Pretty cool, I never noticed that before!

And thanks for your nice attitude this time, I really appreciate it my friend!

I starred your OP.
