When is the last time you saw one of those neat optical illusions? Do you like to watch them occasionally? The moment I got hooked on them is when I started studying the Escher drawings. They amazed me since I was a little kid, in fact, they still do. I studied them in an attempt to find out how he had done it. What made them more incredible in my eyes was the fact that they had been done so many years ago and we still cannot understand how he did it.
Optical illusions give us the chance to see people and places that we may already know with a new set of eyes. You may have seen some optical illusion videos in the past and have even dared your friends to fall for it. But the thing is they will fool you each time because they are designed to work based on the weak points of your brain. The way these ‘flaws’ in our brain work have been the object of study for a long time. Maybe if we know how the brain processes them, we can use that information in our favor.
These tricks can be used in a number of ways, but in many cases, they can be used to change your perception of something, or in other words, they can make you see what was once a beautiful face an ugly one. Believe me, this can sound impossible, but I have seen it myself, a gorgeous face can change into an ugly one in a couple of minutes. I also have to say that these discoveries took place completely by accident.
There are a lot of theories as to how the discovery was made. Some people believe that it might have been while someone was looking at still photographs or portraits. In these cases, the person would probably focus on one point and then look away. While there are a lot of explanations for pictures like these. I urge you to take a look and do a little research for yourself and you’ll evidence that supports it.
While you do this, you can sit back and take a look at the pictures in the next video. You will see many of your favorite actors there and confirm that their beauty is not immune to this illusion. I do have to mention that you do something before you decide to press play. Read the instructions and follow them carefully as they are of utmost importance in getting the best results!
