By #3, I Thought My Brain Was Going to Explode. These Illusions Are Insane.

MAY 30, 2014

There are many optical illusions, both natural and man-made, that can trick your brain… every time. The visual illusions are characterized by visually perceived images that differ from objective reality. The information your eyes gather doesn’t match the source in some way, causing a major (awesome) headache. There are three main types of illusions: "literal optical illusions that create images that are different from the objects that make them, physiological ones that are the effects on the eyes and brain of excessive stimulation of a specific type (brightness, colour, size, position, tilt, movement), and cognitive illusions, the result of unconscious inferences." Get ready. Each of these illusions are going to blow your mind (and you won't be able to stop it):

1.) Which face is male and which is female? ... ... wrong, they're the same androgynous face.

2.) Look at the cross. How do the celebrities look?

3.) Is this the same picture? ... ... YES.

4.) There is NO lake.

5.) That's not a bird. ... ... It's a painted woman.

6.) Which direction is she spinning? ... Are you sure?

7.) This floor is flat.

8.) Stare at the cross for 10 seconds ... ... the purple dots disappear.

9.) These monsters? ... ... They're the same size.

10.) Squares A & B are the same shade of grey.

Seriously.

11.) Stare at the dot.

12.) The blue and green spirals? ... ... They're the EXACT same color.

13.) Stare at the colored dots on the girl’s nose for 30 seconds. Then look at a white surface and start blinking.

14.) These 2 blocks are the same color. ... ... Cover the line with your finger to check.

15.) Try to focus on one dot. ... ... Do you see the black dots?

16.) Focus your eyes on one of these spirals.

17.) These two sets of figures are the same color.

18.) The orange dot is the same size in each image.

19.) Stare at the yellow dots ... ... eventually they will disappear.

20.) How many legs does this elephant have? You sure?

21.) Oh, what a lovely picture of cars. ... ... oh wait.

22.) Is this a black and white picture... or colored? 23.) Look at this spiral for a while... (H/T BuzzFeed) The human brain is pretty fascinating, but it can still be tricked by something as simple as a black and white photograph- pretty trippy!
