Don’t Trust Your Eyes


Don’t Trust Your Eyes, right?

Sometimes something comes along as we research topics and ideas to share with you that makes us stop and think.  This post is one of those post we called “Don’t trust your eyes.”  It’s amazing how the human brain works.  I know this is not news to you.  For example, I remember seeing a sentence that looked something like this somewhere before “Cn yu rad his?”  and it talked about how the brain can still make sense of that even though  ettrs re msing.  Got you again 🙂

So when we found this blog article about something quite different but still the same, it intrigued us and we thought we’d share it because, well, it’s pretty cool.  So what you saw on the Facebook page post wasn’t someone’s attempt  to copy the beginning of a  Twilight Zone televison show ( I date myself here), but instead it was our brain putting a puzzle together from pieces to make a whole.

Don't Always Trust Your Eyes

So what we are actually looking at is a hall that’s been painted by Swiss artist Felice Varini in such a way that our brain fills in the gaps and an optical illusion is created.

This is how our brain interprets the painted hall.  Weird and cool at the same time.

There’s five or six more paintings by Varini if you click on this link –  of different optical illusions, all of them are pretty amazing.

So does this idea apply to self reliance, survival preparedness, homesteading?  Maybe,  how about hidden doors to hidden rooms for instance.  Seeing is not always believing, like in the case or a mirage. None the less, we thought it was worth the share.  Let us know what you think.  Did you find this interesting?

    Pretty cool! These optical illusions make camouflaging the obvious possible. The life like chalk art is another example of optical illisions.
