It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection.

We are unready to meet these times, but we proceed nonetheless, adapting as we wander, reshaping the Earth with every tread. Behind us we have left the old times, the standard times, the high times. Welcome to the irregular times.

Pareidolia is the human tendency to see meaning in randomness, to find intention and meaning where there is none. I know this, but being human I can’t will my brain to stop finding faces in smoke and ducks in clouds. Or uncanny resemblances in sliced carrots.
What do you see?
