More ways to get Braingle...

Frazer's Spiral

An optical illusion is a visually perceived image that is deceptive or misleading.

 

Puzzle ID:#28638
Fun:**** (3.37)
Category:Optical-Illusion
Submitted By:JakeAadminus*mod!!!

 

 

 



Does this look like a spiral? It's actually a bunch of concentric circles. Use your mouse to trace one circle and you will see that you come back to where you started instead of spiraling into the center.

Lets look at this in a scientific way. Ok, so you're looking at a spiral. It completly appears to go downwards, creating an optical allusion to my mind. But is there more than just the downward spiral? That is the trick optical allusions have on your Dual-brain nerves, located at the top right and left-hand corner of your head. Dual Brain-nerves allow humans and most intellectually-functioning beings to think clearly. This is also why we feel dizzy and make unacurate comments like "my brain hurts". As you have just annalyzed, your brain does not actually hur, it is your dual brain nerves. Also, i still have no idea why they are called that, as the are not even close to being part of your brain, as they are located right below the thick head plating known as th skull. so just to clear up any inacurate speech, i wanted to inform you all of this. Also, The allusion was ok i guess, it is certainly not as good as others are saying, because it only held my attention for a minute, right before i figured it out.

we just learned about concentric circles in geometry...i never wouldve figured this out though!
(user deleted)
Mar 09, 2007

Part of it is the background. The details get smaller towards the middle.
And the circles are made up of black and white lines that make it look kind of like a ribbon that twists around. Look closely.

I could sound smart and analyze why exactly the spiral appears as it does (as some others have) but why bother? It's a great optical illusion, who cares why it works the way it does! *it definitively hurt my eyes too O.o*
