Optical Illusions-Powerful Patterns

Stare at the black dot in the center of the image. How it works-When you are looking at the swirl, your eyes look back and forth, really fast. The combination of the patterns and colors in this image trick your brain into thinking the swirl is actually moving. The changing view creates a different amount of visual messages to your brain on how we see it.                                                    By:Lauren Lins
