Weird, but cool, yet I feel inspired.

What other secrets does our brain possess that we are actually using everyday, that we don't even know about?!

I mean, this can be related to any other concept.

Quite disturbing to an extent... Hmmmn...

Not off-topic at all, actually.

If you think about it, our brains are hardwired to look for patterns. That's why even with the worst 500kilopixel digicam we are able to understand what the picture is of.

It's why we see bunnies in clouds and the man in the moon. It also helps us piece together all the little pixels in a picture.

As long as the pattern is recognizable within a certain threshold, our brains can figure it out, no matter how distorted or unclear it may be.

This is my theory as to how companies like Mustek stay in the camera biz.

But it can also be a bad thing, for instance do you see what's wrong with the following:

It is now time for all good men to come to the
