I don't think it's "oddly." I was able to recognize that it was a mix of the two. Could easily tell by the hair right from the start.

It's very explainable why you see Hey-Zeus after looking at the specifically designed image. Why it would tilt anyone's soul is beyond me. Is it a cool illusion? Sure. Is it a religious experience??? LOL!

Best Illusion by far imo, well worth downloading and trying!
(tiny prog)
Basically makes you pseudo-trip for about 1ß-15 seconds (whatever you look at distorts/melts/whatever)

http://www.eyetricks.com/pinwheel.htm

Be sure to stare only at the very centre for at least 40 seconds!

Re: Optical Illusions Thread

The pinwheel is the same concept as the strobe lines Ra_Z_Boy posted on page 1.

I found the strobe to be superior and it is just a sweet website.

Now these:

steeommis stnncees are dcluiifft to utarnensdd if you rgraeanre the ltretes dtlnefeirfy
Made easier to understand because of short words that would be quickly understood regardless of arrangement. But even then, it's the grouping together of specific letters that makes the rearranged words legible.

"Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy" is way harder to understand when written like this:

"adrnioccg to a rrcaehseh at Cgdbirame Uvtsirneiy"

and impossible when you take out the "to" "a" "at" and don't capitalize the "C" and "U".

Not only that, but I seriously doubt a team of researchers at Cambridge University devoted a study to that. Seems like something a man off the street could figure out.

It's down to the shortcuts our brain uses to solve depth perception via light gradients. That's as much as I know about it though
