Optical Illusion – An Oldie but Goodie
I know this one has made the rounds as optical illusions go, but just in case…
Take a look at the spinning woman. Is she spinning clockwise or counterclockwise? Are you sure? Start to glance down and stare at the shadow she’s casting while spinning. Focus there for a while and see if you notice that she changes direction. It may take a while for some, but almost everyone who looks at this can see the change in direction. If you look away after this and then look back, more often than not, the direction will have changed back. What is peculiar about this is some initially see the woman spinning clockwise while others see a counterclockwise spin as the primary direction.
There are lots of theories about this, and I’m not going to ponder why. I have no theories; I just think it is cool! I love optical illusions. If you do too, there are more to torment enjoy here:
