I sometimes feel like this. Especially when I haven’t had my morning coffee.
There is something about looking at an optical illusion on a computer. They look great on paper but the computer screen makes them really pop. Maybe it’s the light and all those pixels. This one in particular really moves your eye.
Wow! How time flies… here were are on Crazy optical illusion 10. Well, this time I think I found a really cool one. Not sure how this one tricks the eye but if is anything like the other, the movement comes from the eye and not the image.Instead of sweating the details let’s just have a look and enjoy!
Isn’t that cool? I just love these things!
Hope you enjoy it and please reblog, like dp@large and feel free to share with friends or repost this blog.
BTW, the instructions said not to touch the screen or the image moves.
Crazy Optical Illusion 4
You touched the screen, didn’t you?
Many of us think we are in perfect control of what our minds believe to be true or false. But what happens when your mind is unable to determine what is impossible? Imagine what would happen if your mind suddenly overrides your conviction that something is false.
That is exactly how the mind perceives optical illusions! So just how do these intriguing illusions work? Your brain is constantly interpreting everything you see, feel and hear.
You rely on your mind for everything you do in your life from complex decision making and logic to the simplest tasks such as eating with a spoon. We take its incredible abilities for granted.
So how are we fooled? Well, it’s because we learn to process certain images automatically. This is because our early development “hard wired” our perceptions. As a result, we learn to subconsciously interpret the images we see every day.
As a result, our minds learn to recognize and automatically process images and associate them with meaning and identity. For instance, young children learn to distinguish unique features in individual faces early in life. The same is true for animals. Each species can detect subtle differences in their peers that can not be detected by other types of animals.
What is an optical illusion? Optical illusions, more appropriately known as visual illusions, involves visual deception. Due to the arrangement of images, effect of colors, impact of light source or other variable, a wide range of misleading visual effects can be seen.
If you’ve ever struggled to see the hidden image in a single-image stereogram, you may have discovered that not everyone experience visual illusions in the same way. For some illusions, some people simply are not able to see the effect.
While optical illusions can be fun and interesting, they also reveal a great deal about the working of the brain.
