Collective Deception of the Eye
By looking at the shades of black and white above, what do your eyes see?
Do you see lines waving at the middle rows?
Do you really think that the lines are straight?
Do you trust your eyes?
Our brain is a powerful machine. It tries to compute or analyze what its counterpart, the eyes, observe. It then do some processing to make sense of the images that comes from the eye inputs.
It is a very interesting tug-of-war between brain and eye.
This is human nature.
Gorgeous isn't it?
By the way, the lines are straight and not bent as seen by our eyes.
