It’s true that I use Google Earth and Street View a lot, and it’s also true that I have an antiquated and very slow graphics card in a PC of mine. But the old card has been producing some very unusual and interesting hybrid images lately – like the ones you see above.
The best of these Google glitches are the result of the computer seizing up completely, from trying to process all the data that’s needed to run Street View. They are images that are frozen half way between Street View and Google Earth.
The mind loves the unknown. It loves images whose meaning is unknown, since the meaning of the mind itself is unknown.
