... Did you see the video?

This wasn't exactly a small stimuli, you are seeing a kid-like figure doing kid-like running without breaking the illusion of being a kid-like figure doing kid-like running, for several seconds. Explaining what we are seeing here with pareidolia just has no place here, the object of motif is responding to a scrolling foreground and background realistically.

no, what you are seeing is a kid running, going out of view, and then seemingly jumping into a tree. Its two separate things that your mind automaticly connects, because you saw the kid running previously. The "thing" jumping into the tree doest even look like a kid, it could be anything. Your just making the connection to a kid because thats where he last was, despite the fact that if you actually looked at the video, it looks like the kid is running away from the Camera and towards the woods. Wouldnt it be more likely to assume that what you are actually seeing is a kid running into the woods, followed by 2 seconds later, a completly unrelated bag (or at least thats what it looks like) caught in an updraft?

That's nice - say - why aren't you addressing my argument? You write 5-6 lines and not one of them works to supports your initial theory of this being a case of pareidolia, instead you move on to advocate apophenia as if I ever took issue on that. :|

Because that was your arguement....or do you actually believe that was a ghost?:lol:

Pareidolia

Humans have evolved to recognize often random and small stimuli as being something significant. The best example of this is in audio. Where often times very quite noises during absolute quite are percieved to be our own name because our brains are wired to pick out that sound, just like they are wired to pick out human faces.

The combination of random stimuli will often register in our brain as "human" even if its really not. For example take one of the most famous ghost photos out there.

at first glance it appears as though there is clearly a women on the lighthouse. But now look at the railing on the left side, under the same angle, it resembles the body of the "ghost" on the right side almost perfectly. While the head, taken in this new context, now just looks as though its a bird.

its nothing but your mind playing tricks on you.

Wait for Red orchestra 2, its similar to the BF series, but a lot more realistic.
