Crazy optical illusion!

In this video it doesn't explain exactly why your eyes react the way they do, however, it is really interesting that if you stare at something long enough then your brain perceives all other things around you differently. After staring at the red dot in this video when I finally looked around the room everything was moving and getting larger and smaller. Just by a 2 minute video my entire perception of the objets around me was thrown off.


  1. This video made me so dizzy but it really worked! Everything I looked at was moving like the picture in the video.

  2. I agree with the above comment. Perception is amazing.

  3. This was really neat. We just did it in class, and if you follow the instructions and actually stair at the screen for the required time, when looking away your perception of the people and objects around you is disoriented. You are given the impression that your mind is perceiving things a certain way, but it is actually your eyes.
