OK, I quite like interpreting logos too, but this thread has just gone on
too long for me.

I have now found it absolutely necessary to respond to this thread.

Personally I am quite interested in logos and what they do or don't say or 
convey. Personally I have found the discussion as interesting as many others

that occur on B-Aus.

I left the computer before to discover I was missing 2 of my favourite Radio

National (bugger the new moniker 'RN'!!!!) shows - 'Science Show' & 'All In 
The Mind'. The bit I caught of the latter I think was quite relevant to 
birders (or field moth-ers/invertebrate-ers like me) and also logos and art.

>From what I gather of the snippet I caught - we have some sort of reward 
system in our brain that likes us to find a pattern e.g. the tiger aka 
threat,  hiding in the general background. Relevant to (field) birders and 
other naturalists as we revel in discovering the bird or moth or plant or 
whatever from the visual hubbub of vegetation or camouflage in which it is 
found. There was also something about our brain liking to/ having rewards 
for make sense of art and imagery. I must remember to listen to the repaeat 
to better understand this all!!

We all have different interests and like to share them. This site is often 
dominated by twitchers and twitching, which, I for one, am not interested
