Our brains are fascinating things, capable of so much, but also very easily tricked. The sense that causes us most trickery is sight, mainly because we can only process so much of what we are seeing in any given moment, only the tiny central point of the eye is processing new information, the rest of what you see is memory projection.
Anyway, the best way to see how easily an eye is fooled is to test it out for yourself, you have eyes, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this here blog (I do not publish my blogs in braille yet).
Just look at it for a while.
The picture never changes, just your brain having a little panic attack.
|Same man, same size|
The men are all the same size, our memory of the nature of 3D is what is confusing us here,perspective tells us that the man on the right is further away, and there for bigger, but the drawing is tricking you.
Let Father Ted explain it.
This perspective shift is the cause of most visual confusion. When you look up at a plane flying in the sky, you have no true way of determining how far from the ground it is, unless you have extensive knowledge of it from studying it at some hootie tootie college that looks like a castle.
|It's a Duck attending a fancy dress party as a Rabbit.|
Take the Duck and the Rabbit, both are supposedly ingredients in Cat food (if you believe the labels), but are they really just the same animal in disguise? Yes, yes they are. So next time you order Chinese take away ask for the Duck but at Rabbit prices.
The flip flopping between perspectives that your brain does when you look at a picture like this shows how easily sight is tricked. The pictures is both a Duck and a Rabbit as well as being neither of them either. It's just a drawing, don't be scared.
|Old couple or young happy people, you decide.|
|This is easy, it's clearly A...no, it's B...hold on, A sped up then,|
Remember how easily your sight has been tricked when dealing with everyday life, for it is harder to trust what you see when most of it is just memory. More illusions to follow...
Peace and infinite love
