Best optical illusion ever?


Wrote Kathryn Schulz, "Maybe the best optical illusion I've ever seen; definitely the one most likely to make you queasy."

I won't argue.

Note that it's not an animated GIF; whatever appears to be happening on the screen is, in fact, happening inside your head.

Gives pause for thought about whether there is, in fact, a world outside the one each of us creates for ourselves.

Awesome optical illusion, i wonder if i can use it on some of my website projects. Inside my head seems everythings is unorganized so i have to do it better. Thanks for sharing this post, a good idea came to my mind.

Proof that absolutely nothing is happening inside my head, because the picture appears totally static. Not one thing going on. No twisty, curly, bendy, twirly-downy, spinny, psychedlicky, far-out nothing going on, no matter how long I stare at it.

I wanted to see it!
