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.

Another Kanizsa Optical Illusion

Like the original Kanizsa triangle introduced by Gaetano Kanizsa, an Italian psychologist. Here is another Kanizsa Girl. The basis of the Kanizsa illusion is that we perceive what is not there based on what is there. First we perceive a triangle on the left then a square on the right even though they don't exist.

Kanizsa Triangle Optical IllusionKanizsa Square Optical Illusion

Now many of us will look at the below image and perceive the woman that may have been in this bed based on what we see even though she isn't there. This was from the Imaginary Girl group on Flickr.

Isn't the bra orientated wrong, breaking the Kanizsa illusion? The black things in the back are stockings, and the cups on the bra and the laces face toward the viewer, which means the girl is either wearing her bra upside down or it breaks the illusion. in any case, i dont see a girl. i do understand the square and triangle bits.
