Our brains are powerful and complex machines, but that’s not to say they can’t be easily manipulated and tricked on occasion. If you need proof, look (literally) no further than what happens with optical illusions.
Whether it’s because we can’t compute what we’re seeing or the image is just intentionally deceiving, there’s no shortage of ways our minds can be tricked. Sometimes these illusions are so tricky, in fact, that the entire collective internet freaks out about them.
Need proof? Just take these photos for example and see if your mind is playing tricks on you!
