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.

Rats on Parade

This is a creepy animation. I found it at zoneflash.net The site is in French and I don't understand a word, but it has some good interactive flash animations. Go to their site and try a few links, I think this interactive animation is fascinating, move your cursor through and around this flash and see what happens.

If all you can see is a red cross, then you do not have flash player installed on you computer. To get flash player installed click here and download from macromedia.com

Vary the speed of this animation until you see the true illusion of this creation.

What's also so amazing is that, as the revolution speed is increased, the disc seems to reverse direction and then stop altogether just as the rat illusion is at its peak. Absolutely one of the best
illusions out there!
