Lots and Lots and Lots of Illusions

If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot,
the dots will remain only one color, pink.

rotating pink dots

However if you stare at the black " +" in the center, the moving dots turns to green.

Now, concentrate on the black " + " in the center of the picture. After a short period, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will only see only a single green dot rotating.

It's amazing how our brain works. There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don't disappear. This should be proof enough, we don't always see what we think we see.

 


 

Now let's play with some words...what do you see below?

good and evil intertwined in different colors

In black you can read the word GOOD;
but the word EVIL also appears in white letters inside each black letter.

 


 

Now what do you see?

OPTICAL in white and ILLUSION in blue landscape

You may not see it at first, but the white spaces create the word OPTICAL,
while the blue landscape spells out ILLUSION.

 


 

And what do you see below?

teach reflects as learn

This one is quite tricky! The word TEACH reflects as LEARN.

 


 

Last one of these -- what do you see?

ME reverses to YOU

You probably read the word ME in brown, but...
when you look through ME
you will see YOU!
Do you need to look again?

 


 

The Man in the Coffee Beans

The "illusion" is that this is just a picture of coffee beans; but it is not. Can you find a man's face among the beans? Some say that if you find the man in 3 seconds or less, the right half of your brain may be more well developed than most.

PS: This is not a trick. A man's face is really hidden among the beans.

The following pictures are NOT animated.

spinning wheels

 

moving petals

 

three columns of waves 

 

 moving lines of leaves

 Your eyes are making them move. To test this, stare at one spot in each picture for a few seconds and everything will stop moving; OR look at the black center of each circle in the first picture, and it will stop moving; but when you move your eyes to the next black center, the previous one will move after you take your eyes away from it.

 


 

And here is another type of illusion.
Count the people in the picture below.
After they shift, count them again!
