We agree the distortion of reality is real, but both sides of the argument are influenced by this.
We also agree there is definitely not enough information for absolute proof on either side. I have never implied that this is undisputed truth, it is a hypothesis that has not been proven or disproved.
I agree with this. I think we disagree on the probability of the outcome. Perceptions are never 100% certain. For instance I have no idea I am comunicating with a person or a rodent martian from space right now.
I agree that pareidolia does exist and is common. But this accusation is not proof that it exists in this discussion.
I agree. I would say it's a high probability as with everything I see.
No malice intended, but claiming a psychological disorder is causing this disagreement on only one side appears to be presumptive, intimidating, and incorrect in my opinion.
psychological disorder? This is my frustration here in general. Pareidolia has nothing to do with a pshychological disorder. We all experience "psychology". I prefer brain physiology or biochemistry. We are all subject to a wide array perceptual phenomenon.
I argue that this HAS to be pareidolia because this is a one dimentional image. There is no depth or texture to the object that is unique to its surroundings. Even if this does turn out to be a Martian Rock Rat from Space, it is still pareidolia due to the fact that it is one flat image taken from one side comprised of light and dark pixels that form an image. There is not enough detail.
You said you see legs and a tail. There is none. when I zoom in where they should be, they disappear. Zoom out really fast and then you "see" it or rather your brain fills those details in.
take this as an example....
