The Pareidolia effect, the Mysterious Girl on Mars and IBN7

Rumors and Illusions create a valid way for money. And this example clearly shows it.
Obviously, the news agencies like IBN7 and others whole round the world enjoy such illusions to make money. (here)
After all, it is a sizzling news, there’s a Mysterious woman (may be girl) on Mars.
But Mars is supposed to be the planet of men I guess.
The woman is supposed to come from Venus.
May be the aeronautic space travelers of NASA were feeling HOT which caused them to imagine a woman on mars.
The pictures are vague, how can they be so sure of that image to be woman? Are her genitals visible? What if that creature is Unisexual developing through asexual process?
How can one be so sure about it?
Anyways, they say that our lovely Earth, this sweet greenish bluish planet is not unique, and there is a mysterious woman on mars too.
So who’s the man on earth willing to procreate with a woman of Mars?
Sleeping with a Mars beauty lol, isn’t it sounding SEXY?
May be the woman is actually, from Venus, and she went to mars to meet some of her lover?
Or, may be she was some sort of Venus whore who went to Mars to gain some pennies.
Ehh! We didn’t have any picture of Man from Mars.
Yet, the picture shows that Mars do have spankilluscious Mysterious Girl out there.
Ohh my sweet earth, You aren’t the only holder of Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen and water.
Even Mars have some carbon dioxide clouds there, so from where they came, were they result of combustion?
Does that mysterious girl of Mars know about fire? She must be eating something, isn’t it, some other forms of life? Is she omnivorous, or carnivorous or herbivorous?
We never got any plant or tree or other animal’s picture from Mars, so how come this alien mysterious girl came in picture?
A while ago, people were not sure of water and microbes at Mars, and now these pictures are showing a Mysterious Girl on Mars.
I am sure many guys might be feeling their pants itching there while imagining about that mysterious girl.
How nice it would be for some handsome dashing guy from Earth to visit Mars and propose that naked roaming Mars beauty queen? Sure it is romantic, isn’t it?
And some years ago, people have decided to buy plots at Moon too. That is different thing that even on earth, there’s no property rights in India.
Despite of all possibilities of alien life on other planets and outside solar system, such rumors are just sizzling rumors, ridiculous commercial news and nothing else.
As for me, it is nothing but the Pareidolia effect. (Here)
Pareidolia is an effect of the reality that our brains mostly work via pattern recognition – making relations among diverse ideas, memories, or images. We are very good at visual pattern recognition, even better than the most sophisticated and modern supercomputers.
And the most familiar and common pattern for us, is the human face. We keep trying to search for similarities between various objects and human faces. Even infants prefer to seek human faces over other stimuli. A large portion of our visual cortex is meant to see, store and remember faces. It may be due to evolutionary pressures to gain ability to instantly recognize and differentiate a friend from an enemy, also to be able to read slight facial expressions indicating emotions of other person. For this reason we naturally incline to see faces in everything. Most of us have imagined of some old woman sewing cotton on moon in our childhood isn’t it?
Many guys seer’s their Darling’s face on moon.
Even many majnu talks with moon and ask if there’s anyone else as beautiful as their own sweetheart.
So it is common process. We even try to give human faces and action to the great constellations of skies.
So perhaps NASA astronomers might not have been stunned when they saw that woman like figure on Mars. It is hard to come out of the grips of pareidolia. Many times we imagine ghosts on trees, in dark nights and keep fearing about them. It is all psychological effect of our very own natural habit of looking for human faces as references in every object. In past too, NASA astronomers have found such images causing pareidoliac effects. There had been found some pictures of faces on Mars in past too. And recently on 14th of January, the Messenger spacecraft shot some pictures of Homer Simpson’s Mug were found on Mercury.
This mysterious woman on Mars is a classic example of pareidolia!

    I completely agree over the stupidity of Media over this issue.

    Do read this article as well, it only expands this issue of influential Journalism a little more
