THIS bizarre optical illusion plays tricks on the mind if you focus on it.
Many optical illusions use color and motion to confuse the human brain – and a TikTok user with the handle @kingkhieu showed how to do it.
In a 31-second reel, Michael shows viewers a complex two-dimensional image with a circular center.
He then advises them to “don’t blink” and stare straight into the center of the image for 15 seconds.
“The world around you will start to reshape itself,” said the TikTok content creator. “Are you ready?”
Shortly thereafter, the black and white image begins to move, appearing almost three-dimensional as it swirls in different directions.
After Michael finished the 15-second countdown, he asked his users to look around, especially their hands.
If the challenge is successfully completed, users should be able to see their hands “reshape” – like a pixelation forming.
There are different types of optical illusions; this is classified as “physiological”.
These types of illusions rely heavily on overstimulating the brain’s senses.
They are considered more complex than other species because they involve light, movement, color, dimension, and size that trick the brain.
Michael’s video has garnered a lot of attention since it went live a few weeks ago.
Nearly 12,000 people have liked the content and dozens of others have left comments under the video.
“Bro, I was in Minecraft for six seconds,” said one user, following his sentiment with several gorgeous emojis.
“Wow this is crazy everything is moving,” noted a second user.
“I’ve seen the comments move,” chipped in a third TikToker.
