Email #1: Guided Apophenia (QAnon and Game Design) ()[edit]

Hi all, especially Cara with regards to this question. Reading A Game Designer's Analysis Of QAnon[6], I realized that the concept of guided Apophenia is the evil counter to the skeptics' approach of helping people to realize their failures of critical thinking through gently guiding them with rational questions. I'm interested to get your thoughts on what the counter to this approach could be. Is it through education about pareidolia and Apophenia? Regardless, perhaps Apophenia is a good candidate for What's the Word?

– Cheers, Brodie
