Optical Illusion spinning spirals moving circles optic illusions

 

In this optical illusion, each set of broken concentric circles appears to spin when you aren't looking directly at them, as your eyes jot around on the picture you get the perception of movement. the strongest effects are seen with your peripheral vision as you look at the edges or just off the image elsewhere on the screen. The circles seem to spin in different directions with the altered placement of color patterns.

Optical Illusion wavy lines crooked lines wobbling lines black and white illusion

 

This optical illusion in black and white causes a couple different illusion effects. You may see a vibrating action or maybe rolling waves moving across the page. Where lines converge your eyes may even perceive color where there is none. With this illusion as in many others, if you move in toward the screen then back out away from the screen or maybe by tilting your head from one side to the other you may see different effects

 

 

 

Hole in Focus, Magnified Spot Optical Illusion

 

Looking through a hole into a different dimension

 

Optic illusion tricks tour eyes as the circle appears to be vibrating and shaking around

 

The soft feathered inner image in this illusion looks blurry, out of focus and almost as if it is raised off the page in a 3D sort of way due to the sharp contrast and clear cut lines of the outer image. This tricks your eyes and the circle appears to be vibrating and shaking around when you look at or near the edge of the circle or toward the corners of the square

Cognitive illusions

Cognitive illusions are formed when "unconscious inferences" are produced from interaction with perception in real the world,

Cognitive illusions can be described as paradox illusions, ambiguous illusions, fiction illusions, or distorting illusions.

  1. Ambiguous illusions - The Necker cube and Rubin vase are examples where a photograph elicits the perceptual 'switch' between the alternative interpretations.

  2. Distorting illusions - Café wall or Müller-Lyer illusion are examples characterized by distortion of size, length, or curvature.

  3. Paradox illusions -   The Impossible staircase or Penrose triangle are examples of objects that are paradoxical or impossible to exist as they are perceived.

  4. Fictional illusions - More properly called hallucinations, are defined as the perception of objects that are genuinely not there to all but a single observer.

 

Optical Illusions And Magic

Optical illusions and stage magic have the same goal of amazing and fascinating the mind's eye.

Magicians are experts in illusion. Their main goal is to deceive the viewer and make them perceive that which the magician desires.

Optical illusions are often used as or in props  in magic tricks to confuse the spectator so they miss a slight of hand or quick dexterous movements to achieve the desired visual effect.

Magicians have amazed crowds for generations with amazing feats like sawing a woman in half and recombining her in front of the spectators or making a person, animal or even  an inanimate object like an airplane disappear then re-appear at the magicians will.

Then there is street magic like that of David Blain with his levitation trick or making something mysteriously go through a storefront plate glass window without breaking.

Optical Illusions And Magic are produced and performed for your amazement and pleasure.
