Cool Optical Illusion

Check out this optical illusion (if you're logged in, you can see the bigger image) :-

Optical-Illusion

This thing just doesn't stop until we all just give up! Can anyone stare at this for longer than a minute? 😁

...By the way the above image is not an animated GIF!

Good one!

I managed to stop the rotation by concentrating on the center of the image for a few seconds. If you look at any other part of the image, it seems to be pulsating. But if you look only at the center, the shaking slowly stops and it becomes still..

Any meditation practitioner can stop the apparent motion by stilling.

Didn't get you. Are you suggesting that if we concentrate right at the center of the image; we can stop the apparent motion?

^^ That is what I said too.. Just concentrate on the center of the image.

Not necessarily the centre. Anywhere. The key is not to concentrate but still the mind. The eyes also get still. So does the image. What causes the apparent movement is the tiny movements of the eye that is distracted by the flowing lines and changing colour across the field. The superimposition of such small displacements create the illusion, which is what you mentioned as animated GIF.

However, one has to make an effort. It is a fine piece and I enjoy the animation.
Make sure you are free and try to concentrate on small parts rather than the image as a whole. Then the image is still! 😛
Eyes are rolling. Getting Headache watching this 😡 How this type of images can be done?
Can we make this kind of image one for CE? Just for fun 😎
