In this pretty-pretty World – What we actually see is not what we actually think & what we actually think is not what we actually see! Confusing lines, isn’t it? Same as these words, there are many famous images which have some kind of Illusions. Let’s just have a look at some very famous optical illusions images and know about their histories:
1. Hermann Grid
This is a classic optical illusion named after Ludimar Hermann who discovered it in 1870. At every point, where the white lines intersect our eyes perceives a gray, shadowy blob. If you look directly at one of the intersections though, the blob disappears.
2. Fading Image
Stare at the image for about half a minute without moving your eyes and watch as it gradually disappears. This is a variation of Troxler’s effect which essentially says that if you fixate your eyes on a certain point, stimuli near that point will gradually fade.
This is one of the most famous optical illusion pictures of an impossible object. It has two rectangular prongs at one end that morph into three cylindrical prongs at the other.
4. Endless Staircase
This is a variation of the endless staircase optical illusion constructed out of legos. Like the blivet, this is also an impossible object and is sometimes called the “Penrose triangle”.
5. Black on White
Stare at the center of the image for about 30 seconds and then look away at a preferably white surface (sometimes the ceiling works). What do you see? Do comment below.
6. Hering Illusion
Although the two red lines seem to be bowed outwards they are perfectly straight and parallel. This optical illusion is attributed to Ewald Hering, a German physiologist who believed that the distortion was derived from the mind overestimating the angles at the points of intersection.
7. Titchener Circles
Also known as the Ebbinghaus Illusion, there is still a debate in psychological circles as to the exact mechanism and implication of this effect. Essentially, the orange circle on the left appears to be smaller than the one on the right although in reality, they are the same size.
8. Wonder Block
Yet again, we have an example of an impossible object except for this time it’s the rotation of the blocks that is inconsistent. Are they side by side or on top of each other? Maybe that’s why they call them indecipherable figures.
9. Static Motion
No, this is not a GIF. The image really is static. Notice that when you look at any individual point dead on, it will stop moving. This powerful optical illusion is derived from interacting colour contrasts and shape positions within the image.
10. Rotating Squares
At first, this optical illusion picture may be hard to see, but if you begin to scan back and forth across the image you will notice that the squares in your periphery begin to rotate. As soon as your eyes stop moving, however, rotation will cease.
The whole world is an illusion, if you want to see that illusion, first you have to create that hidden truth seeker “EYES”. Always stay tuned to Lopscoop for more interesting facts.
