owls and aliens pareidolia

click on the image above for a HI-rez view

This is the back of my bedroom door. Without squinting or anything, I can see two owls and two aliens within the wood grain. And it's even weirder because the owls are seemingly floating up out of the aliens in an etherial ghost form. There is actually a third set, but they get chopped off on the left end of the door, so they don't count. 

The image above was crated using Photoshop. All I did with the door (left) was increase the contrast slightly to bring out the wood grain. I isolated the outlines of the characters (right) by overlaying a darker layer to outline what I'm seeing.

Is this weird? I'm not sure what to think anymore, but it seems sort of weird to me.

Below is an excerpt from a hypnosis session. The hypnotherapist asked me, "Mike, what is your connection to owls?" Below is my reply.

I understand how people take in a story, and how they need a symbol or a sign on the door. But the owl is meaningless to what is on the other side of the door. It’s just the doorway that’s important. 
The owl is the right symbol for the door. We are on this side, and everything else is on that side of the door. There is a LOT more! We are in this little tight hallway here, and on the other side of the door is this vastness!

Ironically that pattern reminds me of the old black and white intro patterns from the pre-colour TV series of Dr.WHO when the theme music is being played -

Hey Mike, didn't you say on a podcast that you were hypnotized once and you asked what the owl meant, and you were told something like the owl is just the doorway ... or the door?

Reply to Darren:

I certainly did. And I thought about that too!

Since my synchronicity involves you Mike, I'll share this: I just finished listening to the episode where you said it's the door that matters, not the owl. And lo and behold I come to this post that mentions that very same message. And for extra credit, you posted this on Dec. 3rd; my birthday is Dec. 4th.

Take a look at images of owls without feathers. I see a link to people who claim to see 'mantis aliens'.

Mike - interesting - for me the writing is on the wall. So, symbolically, it seems I am "Doc Brown" from Back to the Future and literally written on the wall of the house I am renting are the builders names! One of whom is "DBROWN". There is also a date - July 21, 1966. And I suspect, for complex reasons, that the date of the Rapture to be July 21 (or the 21st day of the 7th month) and... what does the Rapture look like? ... quite a lot like a whole lot of UFOs in the sky (or at least that's how I imagine it)...

Yeah. I think it looks a little weird - more than just good ole fashioned pareidolia.
