Recently, photographers have captured lightning in the ash cloud of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano. Created by friction, these lightning are eerie enough on their own. But what makes the photograph above eerier is the face (Can you see it?) of what some people may call "evil" peeking out of the cloud with glowing eyes and all. The face appears to be smoking a cigar, as if having fun while the volcano creates chaos in Iceland!
Well, we all know that this phenomenon is common. It's just a simulacrum or random image that is somehow associated by viewers to certain familiar images. In this case, it's a face. With the reddish eyes and brimstone, it's easy to associate it with something evil. But whether you're superstitious or not, the nearby volcano, Katla, is now in danger of erupting with a destructive force that's ten times more than what came from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano. It last erupted in 1918 and usually erupts every 80 years or so and is now overdue. It's just a warning, but people should heed it in case the scientists are correct.
Holy simulacra! See them here.
