We are born to see patterns.
Recognizing a human face is so hardwired into our brains that we begin to search them out wherever we glance. We see faces in the clouds, in the stars, pieces of toast. The randomness of each has been commonly misconstrued as a sign from the heavens.
“LOOK! I found the face of Jesus on this piece of toast! Isn’t that amazing?”
“Are you sure your mind isn’t just seeing what it wants to see? Plus, you really burnt that toast.”
“What, so Jesus can’t be black?!”
