Pareidolia is the phenomena of seeing faces/figures/forms in patterns; as opposed to where one normally sees faces/figures/forms (on animals including people/landscapes etc.)
Pareidolia is seeing what appears to the individual to be a representation of a face, figure, or form in the clouds, wood grain, marble, smoke, shadows, or any non-homogeneous area. It can also be an auditory phenomenon as in hearing white noise or a record played backward that sounds to the individual like words or a melody that isn't actually there.

Solipsis: A new word coined here and now. The third major paradigm after the first=Religion, the second=Science. Solipsis states that there is only the binary consciousness of the entire "universe" consisting of each individual's consciousness and the consciousness of the entire universe, which operate in a Yin/Yang fashion, co-creating each other. Each of our own consciousness' is Yang, being "smaller" and denser. The universal consciousness is Yin, being "larger" and more expanded. Ones consciousness is the only thing which exists instantaneously in the here and now and is a sympathetic hologramatic reflection of the entire universe seen through each of our own unique hologramatic lenses. The universe is embedded in our consciousness, as our consciousness is embedded in the universe. Everything else takes "time" to perceive and therefore doesn't exist in the here and now, the " past "and "future" are illusions embedded in the present. Neither science nor religion can find the seat of human consciousness. Rene Descartes (1596-1650) located the seat of consciousness in the pineal body, but modern science does not agree. Everything is an electro-magnetic being, not a "physical-material being". Human consciousness is not a physical place located in the brain or body, but is an electro-magnetic field outside of our body, it is the consciousness of the entire universe itself with "our own" interpretation, as seen thru each of our own individual lenses. This twin consciousness is the only consciousness that exists. All other people, places, things, and concepts, including our own "physical body," are extensions and part of this consciousness and are illusionary projections from our part of this binary consciousness. This binary field is all that exists. Our consciousness projects the universe at the same time it is projected to itself by the universe. This is what eastern philosophy referrs to as Yin/Yang, western philosophy referrs to subjective/objective. We have previously tended to see ourselves as separate individuals and not part of the whole, in large part due to the dualistic scientific concept of Rene Descartes. His concept is equivilent to seeing a whilpool as separate from the river it is in. According to solipsis we are whirling pools embedded in the "universe" in a very similar manner. We are not born into the universe as Descartes suggests, as there is no "outside the universe." When any thing can no longer maintain it's integrity it doesn't "die" as suggested by the current Descartian scientific dualistic philosophy, it merely returns to the flow from which it came. Things don't leave the universe any more than they are born into it.
The concept of solipsis is beyond all other concepts and shows the limitation of all other words and transcends the more mundane and exoteric concepts of life, death, time, space, energy and matter which are just the "scientific" way of looking at what are the illusions of the solipsistic view. This is not solipsism as is commonly defined by the dictionary, but solipsis as defined here. According to the dictionary definition of solipsism, "only the individual exits". Solipsis states that only the binary consciousness of the indivdual and the consciousness of the "entire universe as a whole" exists

The sound of one hand clapping is the sound of one hand closing quickly.
The sound of one hand clapping is supposed to be a question with no answer. It is a clasic Zen koan given to students to aid in enlightenment by leading the mind into a cul-de-sac with no way out but enlightenment. How enlightened could the person who came up with this koan be, considering it has such an obvious and simple answer?

Each thing has meaning in itself and describes her/his/it's self. Each thing is a living speaking "God," whether it speaks words or not. This is not to be confused with a word or words in an endless meaningless cycle, which are only approximate, biased definitions based on the senses and other words. Meaning unfolds from what has been folded into it in the first place. Things are not born into the universe, they unfold what has been enfolded into them in this one and only infinite dimensional hologramatic universe. (Each thing is in the universe and the universe is in each thing.) Each thing describes what it means and describes the path it has been on for at least the past 50 billion years.
"Edwina was a mute, but you could understand her meaning by her actions, or lack of them, even when she slept." " 'Life' is it's own meaning, and so is the 'universe,' that is why no one can come up with a definition in words to these basic questions of the 'meaning of life' or the 'meaning of the universe,' that makes any sense."

A wordist is someone who believes that words have absolute meaning. This is another term for word fundamentalism. When people love certain words, the sound of the word, or the imagined meaning, they are often willing to kill or die for the belief in that word or idea it represents to them. Words all define each other, around in an endless circle, and no word has any absolute meaning. Wordists fail to realize this and should read the undictionary to help get the world out of the present fundamentalist wars.
"Eddy" was such a wordist that he believed in being proud to serve the country he loved. He went to war to kill people, (or get killed himself), who were also wordists in the country that they loved. They both absolutely believed in many words and concepts as if these words were actual things that had meaning, instead of words, just being hints to really communicate and get us where we need to go.

A newly coined term for what everything "is." Everything, every "object," is beyond any word or description it is not the thesis, is. It is not below the thesis, hypothetical. It is beyond any ones imagination, comprehension, understanding, words and/or ideas; unlimited by time, space, words and/or ideas; it is hypertherical.
" Eddy described a new system of government to stop war. The teacher told Eddy his example was hypothetical. He told her quite the contrary, it was hyperthetical; beyond any previous example or reasoning." Hyperthetical is the universal answer. Everything is hyperthetical, not meaningless, as are all other words.

To communicate is to express oneself to another, so that the recipient agrees, ACTS on the agreement and improves the universe. It doesn't mean to talk, or to say something and the hearer says yes or no. She/He/It must respond positively and do something to get us out of the cancerous cycle we are in. It is interesting to note that this is the first entry in the Urban Dictionary for this word. If there were any communication, the world would not be as it is. Anyone who has anything to communicate is executed, imprisoned, institutionalized, or marginalized. This is the system that keeps those in power to stay in power.
If you feel you have something to communicate please add to the definition; maybe we can escape the cave of plato, and the world can change.
Eddy said "lets organize a people's union to change the world." He was heard, three billion people joined and ended up working for six hours a year for a middle class existence.
