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.

Illusory Motion Optical Illusion

Here is another excellent optical illusion from Sarcone & Waeber. The below image is static, only the colors change. The base image is an anomalous motion optical illusion. When we add the changing color to the mix it is very hard not to believe that the image itself is not moving.

What do you think?

For more info and another example of Illusory Motion go here.

Paris Rome Sign Optical Illusion

Stare at the center of the 'animated' image. The image is static only the colors change!

I like this one. If you like optical illusions, you will probably like the book 'conceptual blocks'. In this book you find examples of how people are misled by their perception in the solving of puzzles.
