Researchers claim that the brain doesn’t always want to understand what the eyes see. For the brain, it’s easier to imagine something common instead of a weird object or phenomenon. For example, instead of a tree branch, we may see a monster’s paw or regular shadows can turn into scary faces. Sometimes our reality doesn’t give the brain a chance to find out what’s going on even if it tries really hard.
