6 Responses to "Most common of errors…Apophenia? Patternicity? Pareidolia?"

Hi adonis49,

I’m the writer of the original article on apophenia that appeared, as you mention above, on Freshly Pressed a few weeks ago. I’m pleased that you liked it and I’m happy for you to reblog my article, but I do publish under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License, and would therefore appreciate attribution, especially since the majority of your post is a direct cut-and-paste of mine. There is a link to another of my posts within the copied part, but it’s not to the original article, which appears here:

Thanks in anticipation, and feel free to delete this post if you want to.

Thanks for your feedback. I added your name with a tag. Great that you discovered my blog. I have posted many articles on errors and mistakes due to my Human Factors background…

Thanks, adonis49. I don’t want to sound ungrateful, but would a hyperlink to my actual page be too much to ask? I believe that’s the etiquette when reblogging a substantial part of someone else’s post.

Volontier. Send me the link: I am no good navigating the net and doing these kinds of research…

Regarding your comments at Note 1 and Note 2, I really feel that this conversation should be continued, but since it’s a private matter, it would be better done, not via the comments on this post, but by email. I can’t find any contact details for you on this site, so would you like to email me at Alternatively you can use the email contact form on my blog at :// For one, I’d like to let you know how I discovered that you had re-blogged my article. It wasn’t a case of having to “navigate the net to find out who have borrowed my ideas”, but simply a matter of receiving a pingback from your post. It’s something that you should know about in your blogging – along with how to put hyperlinks into your posts.
