The Problem of Pareidolia (Matrixing)

Post Summary:
Pareidolia (parr-i-DOH-lee-ə) is a very common and very significant problem in paranormal research and especially when using photographic evidence to support the idea that a spirit was captured by the camera. Unfortunately, pareidolia is not limited to visual phenomenon but also has a significant impact in auditory evidence and may play just as an important role in the misidentification of sounds in EVP recordings which supposedly represents vocal contact with a  “ghost”.  Given that it has such a big impact on evidence and that it is so common, pareidolia should be understood and compensated for in any serious study of the paranormal.  I discuss pareidolia and its impact in the paranormal in my book. Check it out!

A detailed and expanded version of this post can be found in Pastor Jochem’s book “The Spirit Universe: A Christian View” that is available in the Amazon Bookstore. His book is an invaluable resource to have on hand if you are interested in general information needed for investigating the paranormal, deliverance ministry, or counseling those hypersensitive to the spirit universe or those who are dealing with the occult and negative spirits. The book contains reorganized content from the blog, expanded information, and new content which will not be published in this blog. The book can be read on the Kindle or any device which can run the Kindle application including any Android phone, IPhone, IPad, and the home computer. It is also available in Word and PDF format.
