9 optical illusions that will make you see things! Seeing is believing. Or is it really?
Visual or optical illusions have tricked the minds of many generations throughout the centuries. Aristotle himself noticed that if you shift your stare from a moving waterfall to perfectly stable rocks, they will magically move, as well.
Visual illusions are more than just fun for the audience; they can also help you find out if your brain is healthy. Bright Side has nine curiosities for you to stare at. Let us see how many of them you can figure out.
We will tell what your results say about your mental health at the end of this video.

When it comes to vision, your eyes are only one part of this complicated mechanism. They transmit information about the light they perceive to the brain through the optic nerve. The brain then does all the hard interpreting work. Because it gets lazy sometimes, or just too busy, it has worked out some processing shortcuts. It uses shadows, perspective, and color to correct the image it gets and decide what is what and how it works.
The brain of a healthy person deceits itself. So if you can’t figure out how things are in all the illusions, it only proves the fact that you are a perfectly normal person.
People who see what the deceit part of the illusion is and how it works immediately are either schizophrenics or geniuses. Their brain uses no shortcuts and doesn’t put all the details together to make things easier. People with schizophrenia cannot choose how and what they see. Genius minds can decide if they want to perceive the deceit, or not. Healthy normal people can also do it. Now that you know the secrets of quite a few illusions, you might start looking at things differently, as well.
