Enjoy these awesome optical illusions!
Your brain is an incredibly powerful organ, but it's still pretty easy to trick. Take a look at the image above- some of the circles will look like they’re spinning because of an optical illusion called a peripheral drift illusion. Here are a few "brain hacks" that you can try out for yourself to see just how easy it is to deceive your brain. Check out this silhouette of a dancer. Is she spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise? For me, she’s spinning clockwise, but after a few seconds of staring around the image she appeared to change direction. But of course, she isn’t really spinning in one direction at all, and she doesn’t change direction. Although this is a 2D image, our brain assumes it is 3D and thus tries to interpret it as such. If you focus on something around the girl, maybe the background or the shadow, your brain may reconstruct the image and decide that it is spinning in the opposite direction.
