Houses: that people live in? Amphibians: many individuals? Hat: that people wear? Do you see anything else relevant? Do you see these things with your naked eye? Through optics (except eyeglasses/contact lenses)? Through electronics? On paper? Are you seeing the actual things you're listing? Or something shaped like the things?

Are you looking at clouds? No At random patterns? No

Nonrandom patterns? Yope - DOYD pattern

Shaped like the thing in: three dimensions? This Two? One?

Are you looking at ink blots? No

I love the educational aspect of this board - now I'm curious about the ink-blot test - its time-line (started with Freud, right?), is it still used now but computer-generated, etc..

Read the wikipedia page on the Inkblot test - it's fascinating!

Are you looking at sculpture? Something created by a child? A ball of clay or Play-doh?

Is the object that you are looking at static (unmoving/unchanging)? Or does it change shape as you watch it?

Read the wikipedia page on the Inkblot test - it's fascinating I think I will - I'm a sucker for researching useless but fascinating knowledge!

Are you looking at sculpture? In one case, yes Something created by a child? A ball of clay or Play-doh? No to the rest

Is the object that you are looking at static (unmoving/unchanging)? Remember, there's more than one object. One of them is in some sense often moving Or does it change shape as you watch it? See above

Clarification: and/or hint. By calling them "houses", I was trying to be lateral, but might have been misleading. Most people would call them a certain type of house, not just a "house"

greenhouses? doghouses? penthouses? brick sh*thouses? hen houses? dolls houses? slaughterhouses? counting houses? charnel houses? coal houses? summerhouses? Ah so near but yet so far... Since you're across the pond and I don't know what you silly people mean by hen-houses, I will say that they are "bird houses" i.e. small wooden things with holes in them typically mounted on a tall stick that you fill with bird food to attract, well, birds.

Are the bird houses, the purple moving "hat", the frog, and the other unknown amphibian at different distances from each other?

Is the purple moving "hat" the other amphibian? Are they the same thing?

Is the other amphibian a snake? Is it a dinosaur (like Barney)? Are both amphibians alive, or are the fake?

Can you see both amphibians in your POV? Or is one inside one?

Is tge bird house relevant? Or is it there to help us pin-point the location? Is the location of where you saw this relevant?

Are you having a dream?

Are you looking at one of those menageries that they have in natural history museums, the ones with taxidermized animals?

Are the animals man-made models? If so, are they made out of plastic? metal? wood?

Are you watching a performance?
