Description Presented here is a vast gallery of many different forms of Optical Illusions. Whether these optical illusions are conveyed through fractals, photographs, architecture, art, or old fashioned pen and ink, they are bound to remind you that "seeing is not believing."

Caution!!!! Some of the optical illusions on this blog may cause dizziness or possibly epileptic seizures. The latter happens when the brain can't handle the conflicting information from your two eyes. If you start feeling unwell when using this website, immediately cover one eye with your hand and then leave the page. Do not close your eyes because that can make the attack worse.

The Cafe Wall Illusion

Here is the famous Cafe Wall illusion. This effect is another mind altering trip. The lines are all parallel to each other and straight as an arrow.

The background below is from the Exploratorium in San Francisco, CA. They have an outstanding site start with thier animation of this illusion so you can better understand the effect.
The Cafe Wall Illusion was first described by Dr. Richard Gregory. Dr. Gregory is a good friend of the Exploratorium and director of The Exploratory Hands On Science Museum in Bristol, England. Dr. Gregory observed this curious effect in a pattern of tiles on a cafe wall in Bristol.... Note that the effect is not visible in the picture due to the small scale of the tiles.
