Not to keep ranting on TAPS but....

In another of their articles on photographic analysis, TAPS co-founder Grant Wilson describes the phenomenon known as pareidolia by using his term, "matrixing." I don't know if he understands that pareidolia is a recognized psychological term or if he was just keen on the Wachowski Brothers (Brother? One's becoming a "woman," right?)?

The gender change thing is an urban/internet myth. The press make up crazy things about them because they don't give interviews 99% of the time. The press hate it!! Also, the brother in question had a ugly divorce in which his ex-wife claimed all of this cross gender, goat shagging lifestyle just to run him through the grinder...the scorn of a woman indeed!

Yeah, I read about the myth soon after. It's kind of funny just to perpetuate it. I think that in our quest for truth we often overlook the joy a completely groundless, silly tale can instill. Here's to all the spiders in your beehive hairdo!
