What with all the sightings of Mary and Jesus -- and my debunking of them -- I thought my Bad Readers would be amused to see this image which I spotted in the latest issue of the magazine Physics Today:
The pattern arises from the way light interacts with atoms in a crystal, and it's called a Brillouin pattern. I'm showing the image to you here because of the specific pattern in it. You want a conspiracy, a miracle? I'll ask you: Where is cutting-edge work being done on Brillouin patterns? Why, The Technion, an institute in Israel!
P.S. The title of this entry comes from the word pareidolia.
