We are all matrixers and tricksters.

What is matrixing?

Recognizing other humans, and the faces of parents, is the first skill a baby learns. Pattern recognition of this sort is also a survival tool, giving the earliest humans a way to spot predators in hiding. The skill is so fundamental that, when presented with a random set of patterns the human brain attempts to make sense of what it sees. If it can possibly resolve that random pattern into a familiar object or image, it will.

Examples:


The Face on Mars. This infamous picture seems to show the shape of a human face on the surface of Mars, but later pictures of the same area demonstrated that the image was the product of natural features and shadow.
Car design. The front of a car - the grill, headlights, and shape of the hood - often resemble a face. Designers pay attention to this, giving family cars a friendlier "face", and sports cars a more aggressive one.
The appearance of "holy" figures in surprising places. The images of Christ, the Virgin Mary or other figures of faith have appeared in locations as diverse as stained concrete, windows and food.
Shapes in clouds. Probably the most immediately familiar form of matrixing, anyone who has looked into the sky and thought "that cloud looks just like..." has experienced a form of harmless matrixing.
Rorschach ink blot tests. These depend on a sort of directed matrixing, with the person taking the test allowing their subconsciousness to make the ink shape suggest something, or form patterns.And of course... fairies!

I will show some pictures I made, and I will zoom in and make them blurry and I'll let you play with it. Original photo plus edited ones will be shown:

I have enlarged the fruit on the left. As you can see, it's open, and it looks as if someone is in there, trying to eat from it. My guess is that it's a fairy who's having her breakfast. I have also taken interest in the green light (to the right). I believe it's an orb, or some kind of spiritual energy. And in the middle, we can see another fruit and again, it's as if someone, or something, is in there. If you look good, you can see two hands.

You can see a lot of faces in there. Activate your third eye and the secrets will be given to you. Spiritual lights can be seen too..

By no means am I trying to tell fairies or elemental spirits exist or not. I am showing you how easy it is to ''see'' things. After all, we are all matrixers and tricksters, and if you ask me, we need to understand this to separate the bull from the truth.

Now if those beings exist, we would easily see them. Everyone would, and so called ''awareness'' is just an excuse to dismiss investigation. If they can be captured, they should be visible in sharp pictures. They're shy, we're told. And some of us believe it. These kind of phenomena only seem to be ''working'' in the darkened places, and when we turn up the lights a little, they suddenly ''vanish''..?

Truth does not fear investigation.

Fine post Chrysaetos. I very much hope it is allowed to stand.

Yes, it is a good post. Why wouldn't it be allowed to stand?

Isn't it great that both sides of an issue are allowed to be heard in the same forum? Those who want to believe can believe and those who want to chalk it up to something else can do so as well. So nice to keep the viewpoints separate and respectful, no one trying to prove that someone else is wrong.

Excellent post Chrysaetos. In art we are also aware that the brain does this. With just a few vague brushstrokes artists can suggest the form of a person.. and what people "see" is what they are filling in themselves. Matrixing is a new word to me but the idea is the same.

One problem is that some of the popular books today on nature spirits and the Fae actually encourage readers to look for faces in bushes or faces in rocks or faces anywhere in nature. Its not hard to do. The authors say those are nature spirits. Really? Hmmm... Thats funny cause I've seen artists USE that as a tool to create art especially fantasy art. The combinations of light and shadow mixed with lines and hollows and so forth can easily become *symbol* to the brain suggestive of a face. We don't need the whole thing, just parts of it for the brain to go "Aha! I see something" Yet it is not truly spirit. It is a trick of the brain as you've said.

The people will say the photos are real. Yes the photo itself is real..it was taken with a camera but what they are saying is in the photo (nature spirit) is not a real nature spirit.

Spirit is energy but if it is genuine it will be perceived the way its been through the ages ..without a camera. Its funny that those who so insist that these are spirit can only get them with a camera. Take away the camera and they got nothing.

Personally I have no problem with the possible existence of various other-dimensional creatures, but no such thing has been proved yet.
Unless of course, there is evidence. Preferably, unedited videos of excellent quality where we can clearly identify them and see them move.

I thought it was amusing and quite harmless.

If every subject under the sun is considered sacred, then nothing actually is. If a belief system can't handle a bit of teasing, it's built on a very shaky foundation indeed.

Yo, actually, when i was a kid i had a horrendous phobia of buses, and large vehicles for that reason. I would try and point out to my parents, and adults how vehicles looked like they had faces, but no one ever really paid attention to it much! I also lived on a farm, and my dad drove those old fashioned dump trucks, and tractors, and those things, i believed, were monsters ready to eat me. (also because they would speed down the road really fast, scared the **** out of me) :D I had an overreactive imagination.
I remembered my phobia of buses so well, i even wrote a story on it a long while ago. It goes like this:

"The giant yellow school bus of hell turned the corner. Its windows were blackened with staring freaks inside. Its headlights and grill were upturned in a huge metal snarl. The motor purred of death, and the face of the bus bared its vicious teeth. Why did they make large vehicles look as if they had snarling mouths of fangs?
I had to go against my inner nature to jump into the ditch before it arrived painfully slow, grinding to a halt.
There was something about buses that terrified me. In the past, if I was walking alone to the bus, or with my little sister, I would jump in the ditch and pray to god the bus had not seen my embarrassing escape.
The bus would usually notice if my stupid sister was slow while retreating to a ditch, so sometimes we would wait for half an hour in the ditch before it left."

Yup. Over active imagination being a kid, probably still now.

I love that picture.. I was going to the bird aviary and my first thought was ''what the..'' I immediately went back to get the camera.
I couldn't ask for a better example of matrixing..haha.

Around Christmas I was walking outside. It was evening and the only light came from the lampposts. I saw something in brown and white colour sitting near the street. My first thought was: ''What's that buzzard doing over there?'' I swear to you, it looked very similar to a buzzard.. http://www.google.nl/images?hl=en&source=imghp&biw=1280&bih=830&q=common+buzzard&gbv=2&aq=f&aqi=g1&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai= (http://www.spiritualforums.com/vb/redir.php?link=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.spiritualforums.co m%2Fvb%2Fredir.php%3Flink%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww .spiritualforums.com%252Fvb%252Fredir.php%253Flink %253Dhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fwww.spiritualforums. com%25252Fvb%25252Fredir.php%25253Flink%25253Dhttp %2525253A%2525252F%2525252Fwww.spiritualforums.com %2525252Fvb%2525252Fredir.php%2525253Flink%2525253 Dhttp%252525253A%252525252F%252525252Fwww.spiritua lforums.com%252525252Fvb%252525252Fredir.php%25252 5253Flink%252525253Dhttp%25252525253A%25252525252F %25252525252Fwww.spiritualforums.com%25252525252Fv b%25252525252Fredir.php%25252525253Flink%252525252 53Dhttp%2525252525253A%2525252525252F%252525252525 2Fwww.spiritualforums.com%2525252525252Fvb%2525252 525252Fredir.php%2525252525253Flink%2525252525253D http%252525252525253A%252525252525252F%25252525252 5252Fwww.spiritualforums.com%252525252525252Fvb%25 2525252525252Fredir.php%252525252525253Flink%25252 5252525253Dhttp%25252525252525253A%252525252525252 52F%25252525252525252Fwww.spiritualforums.com%2525 2525252525252Fvb%25252525252525252Fredir.php%25252 525252525253Flink%25252525252525253Dhttp%252525252 5252525253A%2525252525252525252F%25252525252525252 52Fwww.spiritualforums.com%2525252525252525252Fvb% 2525252525252525252Fredir.php%2525252525252525253F link%2525252525252525253Dhttp%25252525252525252525 3A%252525252525252525252F%252525252525252525252Fww w.spiritualforums.com%252525252525252525252Fvb%252 525252525252525252Fredir.php%252525252525252525253 Flink%252525252525252525253Dhttp%25252525252525252 525253A%25252525252525252525252F%25252525252525252 525252Fwww.spiritualforums.com%2525252525252525252 5252Fvb%25252525252525252525252Fredir.php%25252525 252525252525253Flink%25252525252525252525253Dhttp% 2525252525252525252525253A%25252525252525252525252 52F%2525252525252525252525252Fwww.google.nl%252525 2525252525252525252Fimages%25252525252525252525252 53Fhl%2525252525252525252525253Den%252525252525252 52525252526amp%2525252525252525252525253Bsource%25 25252525252525252525253Dimghp%25252525252525252525 252526amp%2525252525252525252525253Bbiw%2525252525 252525252525253D1280%25252525252525252525252526amp %2525252525252525252525253Bbih%2525252525252525252 525253D830%25252525252525252525252526amp%252525252 5252525252525253Bq%2525252525252525252525253Dcommo n%2525252525252525252525252Bbuzzard%25252525252525 252525252526amp%2525252525252525252525253Bgbv%2525 252525252525252525253D2%25252525252525252525252526 amp%2525252525252525252525253Baq%25252525252525252 52525253Df%25252525252525252525252526amp%252525252 5252525252525253Baqi%2525252525252525252525253Dg1% 25252525252525252525252526amp%25252525252525252525 25253Baql%2525252525252525252525253D%2525252525252 5252525252526amp%2525252525252525252525253Boq%2525 252525252525252525253D%25252525252525252525252526a mp%2525252525252525252525253Bgs_rfai%2525252525252 525252525253D)

I came closer and it turned out to be... a pack of snow. The snow near the streets often gets brown.
Unfortunately I don't have a picture because I was checking it out and this destroyed it. :D

But yeah, I experience matrixing frequently.

Thanks for bumping my thread I guess. People may see a different perspective, much needed to provide a balance. Cheers! :wink:

I will repeat.. there were no feathers..! At least not in the object..
Could you respond to that? Shoot the message, not the messenger..

I have no new pictures for now.. it is surely interesting now that I think about it. Back in the winter I encountered this phenomena a lot more. Must have something to do with the darkness and greyness of the winter, making it easier to be tricked. I could post more cars and stuff but that is too obvious. When I have found something exciting.. I will share it here.

There are a few formations that look vaguely humanoid if you squint. But without evidence to the contrary, they are simply rocks. :wink:

I am the MASTER at this. Hee hee. I am constantly walking up to people thinking they are someone I know... and they are not.

But Chrysaetos, question for you... do you think that the underlying math beneath nature (such as fibonacci or physics), is just another matrix/pattern?

Can you prove that those faces, figures, and forms are not rock elementals? Their lifespans are so much longer than humans, so maybe they move much too slowly for you to be able to see. We all know that a rock's vibration is much, much slower than a humans. :D

It's true.. the big one that stands out looks like a typical fantasy dwarf.. click (http://www.spiritualforums.com/vb/redir.php?link=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.spiritualforums.co m%2Fvb%2Fredir.php%3Flink%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww .spiritualforums.com%252Fvb%252Fredir.php%253Flink %253Dhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fadriana222.files.wor dpress.com%25252F2007%25252F08%25252Fdwarf_male250 x.gif%25253Fw%25253D470) :D

And yes, one can ''see'' many ''faces'' in the rocks.. When I was there, I had binoculars with me so I've seen it closer. Of course I also visited the temple.
When you actually get closer it becomes clear that the ''faces'' are not as obvious as they appear to be from the distance taken in the photo..

Heres one for you guys....... its serious as in, its actualy the main tourist attraction to mycity, and history lol

This is Nanabijou, a giant who angered an elder and caused him to fall asleep in the bay on the lake. he now guards the silver (whom he gave secrets to "the white man" about) in his eternal slumber.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f2/Sleepinggiantontario5743.jpg

Its actualy quite nice, and its a microclimate on hte east/south sides. All it is is the penninsula that forms the bay.

I like the post Crysaetos, Ive understood this off and on for a while, along with anthropimorphizing in religion ( same difference IMO).

It is nigh impossible to prove a negative so that kind of falls into the realm of a straw man argument. However, being that the assertion is that they are rock elementals, the burden of proof is on the party making said assertion.

Great quote!

I don't understand why people are threatened so much by skepticism, it genuinely baffles me. The only conclusion I can reach, isn't a good one, but boils down to willful ignorance. Some people would rather react with hostility towards skeptics and skeptical inquiry, so they can maintain their illusions without ever removing their blinders long enough to even consider a possibility more grounded in reality.

About the clouds...

This weekend the weather has gone from no clouds in the sky to storming, whenever I have had the time to reach for the camera. So no luck finding anything interesting yet, but I'll keep looking up!
