What do you see?

I distorted this photo so much that it turned out looking like a Rorschach test, though a trippy one. The original photo was an illustration of earth as seen from space. Like a Rorschach test, I can definitely make out some images, faces, etc. in here.

Near the very bottom of the image, I see something that looks like a Cosmic Buddha. But that’s just me!
