Best Illusion of 2011

May 21st, 2011 § 0 comments

This video has nothing to do with Tarot, but it does show us that what we see isn’t always what we’re looking at.

The clip is called ‘Silencing Awareness of Change by Background Motion’ and recently won the 2011 Best Illusion of the Year from the Neural Correlate Society.

It was created by Jordan Suchow and George Alvarez from Harvard.

When the coloured dots start spinning, it might seem like they’ve stopped changing colour. But that’s not the case. It’s just what our brain is telling us.

Concentrate on the white dot in the center, and see what you see.
