I'm pretty confident in saying that what you're seeing is simply the result of Pareidolia. It's a very common phenomenon, so common in fact we all
experience it every single day, and It's commonly mistaken for genuine paranormal activity.
Here's a definition for you:
It's where something insignificant is perceived as significant. It typically is a vague, obscure image or sound that is interpreted as being
something more. Examples include seeing images of Jesus Christ in burn markings on a piece of toast or seeing the man on the moon. In practice the
Rorschach inkblot test uses pareidolia to gain insight into a person's mental state. The ink blots alone are designed to be insignificant images but
the responses they illicit in people are representative of the significance that the person's perception places on the images.
It's posted here in one of my past thread's on the subject: Pareidolia, Matrixing,
Simulacrum and the Paranormal
That's my guess for why you're seeing what you're seeing anyway but trust me, It's a very, very common mistake in the paranormal world.
Edit to add
: Here's a great example of this kind of "phenomenon" (Pareidolia) posted at the beginning of my above linked thread to show just
how real looking it can be when in reality, it's nothing at all - but simply the mind trying to make sense of what it see's:
Oh, my God -- it's a demon! Oh, wait... no it isn't... it's a rock. The phenomenon of seeing a familiar shape or form in random combinations of
shadows and light is known as pareidolia or matrixing, and the thing itself is called a simulacrum. It's very common to see what looks like a face in
jagged rocks (like this photo), grass, dirt, water, clouds, flames, clouds of dust, visible gas -- even a pile of crumpled clothing on the couch.
(Haven't you put that away yet?)
The human brain seems to be wired to recognize faces. That's why it's so startling to sometimes see them in pictures like this. Although the rock
formation is completely random in nature, gosh darn it that looks like a face! It must be a spirit! It's especially disconcerting to some people when
the face, again like this one, resembles the traditional depiction of the Devil. It freaks them out.
In fact, look closely at all of the rock in this picture and you'll see several faces. So either we're just seeing things or this wall of rock is
seriously haunted. Which do you think is more
Of course I could be completely wrong still but I just really don't think this is genuine paranormal activity unfortunately.
