Typos and Pattern Recognition

November 18, 2009

I make a lot of typos when I write. Typically I wake at 5 a.m. and start writing immediately. My brain sees patterns where none exist; for example I frequently forget to use the word “the” since I see the word in my mind’s eye.  That is how I function and I am unlikely to change my habits.

When you read my posts, bear this in mind.  I am not being sloppy but demonstrating a familiar human frailty.

What do you see here, in this pic shot at Chitzen Itza in Mexico:

Some otherwise intelligent people see a stylized elephant’s trunk, while others see only a randomly carved stone.

See what I mean?
