What is Apophenia?

AND … What is Pareidolia?

Apophenia is the tendency to mistakenly perceive connections and meaning between unrelated things. The termwas coined by psychiatrist Klaus Conrad in his 1958 publication on the beginning stages of schizophrenia.

Conrad defined it as “unmotivated seeing of connections [accompanied by] a specific feeling of abnormal meaningfulness”. He described the early stages of delusional thought as self-referential, over-interpretations of actual sensory perceptions, as opposed to hallucinations.

Man in the Moon refers to any of several pareidolic images of a human face, head or body that certain traditions recognize in the disc of the full moon.

Pareidolia is the tendency for incorrect perception of a stimulus as an object, pattern or meaning known to the observer, such as seeing shapes in clouds, seeing faces in inanimate objects or abstract patterns, or hearing hidden messages in music. Pareidolia is a subcategory of apophenia.
