Frazer's Spiral

Submitted By:Jake
Fun:**** (3.37)
Difficulty:** (1.9)

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.

Posted by SPUTNIK202/18/06

Finally, one that isn't on every Op. Illusion site.

Posted by hotdogsforme02/27/06
wow, that was very great :roll:

Posted by MattNate02/27/06
I think it has something to do with how the shades of gray are simiular,but i like it :wink:

Posted by broken_dreams03/04/06
this was awesome! i loved it! :D

Posted by riddlelover03/06/06

Posted by kashby03/08/06
ow, now my eyes hut, whoa. :o

Posted by MattNate03/09/06
8) what i meant was that since their simular its a little harder to see so its hard to know what they are.does anyone agree with me.i really like this one, send some more

Posted by MattNate03/09/06
:-? sorry for spelling they're wrong

Posted by MattNate03/09/06
i don't think thats the only reason, i think the last ones come off the page what makes it look 3D,and i think peaple are used to that desine being a spirill

Posted by 98_angel03/11/06

Posted by lukeschett03/21/06
I was too lazy to trace it but it still n00bz0rsed.

Posted by Unstumpable03/29/06
Iâ™ LOVEDâ™ IT! It was all the cooler though when i got my vison back after staring at if for 30 mins without tracing to see if i could get it. :lol: :roll: I still didn't get it until i traced it though, lol :oops: Still, great one. I wish they updated more :cry:

Posted by calmsavior04/07/06
actually the little stripes along the circles seem to form a spiral

Posted by steverbeaver304/09/06
coldfire: It probably has something to do with the stripes on the circles. DO you see how they curve in? Love it!

Posted by bebo04/14/06
creepy yet cool

Posted by mrndcmch04/22/06
awesome :D

Posted by BrownEyes04/25/06
Eh... it's okay.

Actually, there are no circles... plenty of arcs though I know, some people are picky

Posted by fleur_delacour_05/06/06

Love this one!

Posted by stang9905/16/06
:D I know, its just happening çause of the check pattern behind it. I can actually see the place where it changes the circle but the mouse never goes on it. It's great, pal. :lol:

Posted by Jimbo05/21/06
Now that's a new one. I like it! :roll:

Wow, I had to trace it three times, but it works. Really cool!

Posted by Blackbelt9206/08/06
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.

oooo :o

Posted by danielzerman06/18/06
good spiral... just kiding :D

Posted by Muzozavr06/19/06
I traced it and yes, it's a serie of circles. BUT my mouse went to a wrong point lots of times. :-? Wacky. Fun. Strong. What else do you need from an optical illusion?

Posted by brits199406/22/06
AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!I Love IT :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Does anyone know what the heck Blackbelt92 is talking about?

Posted by shut_up12/15/06
ok there has to be a catch to this thing really look at the middle it DOES! start spiraling it just looks like that cuz a certain part of the circles get close to each other its so obvious really only a genuis could figure that out DUH but cool illusion tho :wink:

Posted by bgil760401/24/07
This is awesome. I would have never figured out they were concentric circles until I used my mouse to trace it. I'm still dizzy! :roll:

Posted by freebush9201/29/07
we just learned about concentric circles in geometry...i never wouldve figured this out though! :P

Posted by cooltigerr103/31/07
ooohhhhh another part that makes it confusing is the backround! lol this keeps me entertained and it doesnt do anything! :lol:

Posted by alicexcore04/03/07
Woah. That's pretty intense. 0_0 I had to trace it like ten times because I kept messing up. Dang. :lol:

WOW that really was driving me crazy. I traced it with my mouse and it really does work. I saved the picture and used one of my programs that i made to check if the spiral is really centric circles or fake.

Posted by Paranoia_Agent08/15/07
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*
