            YES. Very clear. May I ask. Why is it? When you stare at any pattern, be it the carpet, curtains wall paper or whatever, even pictures, works of art etc. Why do we always see heads/faces?

              I've always understood that it's a leftover from our original hunter-gatherer lifestyle - always on the lookout for potential enemies or prey.
