Alien Life Forms Found on Mars?

Recently, NASA rovers have shown pictures of possible alien life forms on Mars. Most people that have seen this picture have noticed that a small, skinny armed, pumpkin-headed creature with a hat is peeking out at the rover from behind the rock. Scott C. Waring believes that the picture is accurate proof of alien life on Mars. However, other NASA scientists disagree with Scott C. Waring. They believe that people are just seeing things that they want to believe.

This incident of seeing things that they want to believe is called pareidolia. Scientists still do not entirely understand how it works. They know that pareidolia is linked to dyslexia, the learning disorder that affects the brain’s ability to read letters and numbers. Even when this area of the brain is working, it can lead to humans see things that are not there. Pareidolia comes from an ability to see patterns and find something that looks familiar. This  skill allows  people to recognize things that are important.
Occasionally, people get it wrong. Pareidolia comes from the brain’s instinct to seek out meaning in unclear or strange images. This allows humans to be able to find faces in unfamiliar places. The ability to recognize an expression is essential to a human.  It is important  for humans to recognize when someone is angry, sad, happy or irritated.  It helps people predict how others will react to them. As soon as a newborn can see, it recognizes faces.  We now know that this skill is imprinted in our brains. The infants who were unable to recognize a face smiled much less, and were less likely to win the hearts of their parents and family in order to thrive.
