It’s proven that mind games make you smarter. Things like optical illusions, magic tricks, and even something like Finding Waldo, are challenges that the brain needs to thrive. It’s just like your body. Just like our bodies need physical exercise to remain healthy and in check, our brains need mental exercise to stay sharp and focused. Everything about the human mind/body goes hand-in-hand.
With that said, here’s a question for you: How do you challenge your brain? Do you sit down and work on a Sudoku puzzle? Do you do a quick word search in the middle of the day, helping you get away from the hustle and bustle of work? Or, do you indulge in optical illusions?
If you say “optical illusions,” then you’re in the right place, because below is a video that will give you 10 optical illusions that will leave you flabbergasted! How does it work? Here its goes.
There are a series of 10 photos that look like your average photo with nothing hidden within. But, that’s the catch. If you look closely, there is an animal hidden in each slide. The video is made in a way that it gives you 30 seconds to find the hidden animal. 30 seconds later, if you’re able to spot it, one point! For those who gave up, the next slide gives the answer away.
I think one of the things that get me each time I go through an optical illusion is how obvious that answer really is. For example, one of the animals you have to find in the video is a horse. I literally spent the 30 seconds scavenging for the horse in every corner of the frame but, to no avail. However, the moment it was pointed out, I couldn’t help but keep noticing it when I looked back at that picture, again.
The mind really has a weird way of playing games with us, doesn’t it? Things like optical illusions are all about the way the eye perceives and what is taken in by the brain. It’s that connection that is made once you look at an image. You get a signal in your brain to make out something that you think is in the picture, that’s how you perceive the illusion and see something that is beyond the reality. Did I just confuse you? It is a little difficult to understand.
But, how difficult is it to pick out the animals in each picture? Check for yourself by clicking on the link below!
