If there is something that most of us know about people in general, it’s the fact that there are no two people alike. In fact, many people are unique in their own, special way and this is really what helps to make the world what it is. Although people may exhibit their uniqueness in different ways, one of the ways that it is often seen is in the way that we think. People tend to either be analytical or creative, something that is usually referred to as being left brained or right brained. Scientists have sometimes tried to disprove the [More]
An optical illusion can be a lot of fun, not only to look at and to try to see beyond it but it can be a lot of fun to try to determine how it is being accomplished. In some cases, it requires a specific type of lighting or maybe looking at it from a certain perspective but when it is done properly, it is impossible for your mind to process the information that is being received by your eyes so that you see the truth behind it. Optical illusions are not only a great way to pass an afternoon, [More]
When we look at the natural world around us, there is a rather interesting phenomenon that most of us tend to take for granted. It doesn’t matter if we are looking at the clouds in the sky, the waves of the sea or even a litter of puppies, there are going to be patterns that become visually evident. These are regularities that are found in the natural world and they may occur in a wide variety of contexts. At times, these patterns can be mimicked mathematically and when that is the case, you may really be in for a visual [More]
The human eye is perhaps one of the most amazing organs within the human body. Not only is it the fastest organ for healing, it is also the one that provides us with sensory input that guides our movements throughout the day. What our eyes see is processed by the brain and then the brain provides us with the necessary information so that we can make the appropriate movements. Since the eyes are such an important and impressive part of the human body, they are a part that we often take care of. We have them tested regularly and if [More]
When you look at the following video, you are going to see something that appears to be impossible but it is actually taking place in front of your eyes. Admittedly, it is a digital image but the fact that it is digital has nothing to do with it. The ballerina begins by leaning on a fence but as the camera is rotating, it seems as if the fence suddenly reverses direction and the ballerina melts right through it! Most people would think that this is just a digital creation but the fact is, it is an effect that is known [More]
An optical illusion is not only something that tricks the eyes and the brain; it can also be quite enjoyable as well. They are often used as a type of science experiment, to show that something is not always as it appears. They can also be used as a form of entertainment, and this is not only true on an individual basis but you may also appreciate what they can do for an audience as well. In this compilation of interesting optical illusions, you will get a taste of almost every type of visual trickery that is available. It starts [More]
The world around us is extremely interesting and most of us would say that we have a pretty good grip on our own personal space. After all, we see things with our own two eyes so there is no doubt that our world is exactly the way we envision it, or is it? If you are sure of what you see in the world around you, you are about to have some doubts thrown into the mix by watching this simple video. These anamorphic optical illusions are going to fool your eyes each and every time you see them. It [More]
There are many things we may appreciate about the world around us but for most people, an appreciation of art causes them to seek it regularly. It doesn’t matter if it is a painting hanging in a museum or if it is a beautiful song on the radio, it is something that helps to complete our lives in a wonderful way. Perhaps that is why we tend to surround ourselves with it regularly. There is actually a science behind art that is known as neuroesthetics. It involves the perceptions that we have to art or music and it can also [More]
Our brain is perhaps the most incredible thing in the known universe, and it constantly amazes scientist who study it regularly. It doesn’t matter how much we learned about the brain, it seems as if there is always something new to learn and scientists may never be able to unlock all of its secrets. One thing that is known, however, is that our brain is separated into 2 different hemispheres, the right brain and the left brain. The different sides of the brain process information in different ways. More than likely, you have a natural tendency to think one way [More]
When we look at anything in the world around us, we likely have thought that what we see is actually what exists. In many cases, it is true to a limited extent. For example, color may not actually exist in the real world but rather, it is how our brain interprets the light that enters into the retina. In addition, everything that we see is upside down, so the world may look rather strange, indeed. Another effect that can certainly change the way that we view anything is known as anamorphosis. It involves the perspective that an individual has when [More]
There is no denying the fact that the brain is an amazing part of the human body. Scientists have yet to unlock many of its mysteries and it is unlikely that they will ever fully comprehend all that the brain has to offer. It is even said that we only use a small portion of our brain, so our abilities may be far beyond what now exists. Even though that is the case, it is still possible to trick the brain in a variety of ways. One of the interesting ways that the brain can be tricked is first by [More]
Have you ever gone to a party and it seems as if it is just lacking something? Perhaps they have everything set up properly and there are a lot of interesting people there but, unfortunately, it just seems to be a flop. In many cases, it is just a matter of not providing proper entertainment and it doesn’t need to be anything elaborate, just keep people interested and they’re going to remember the party as being a hit. If you’re looking for something to do at a party that is simple to set up but will really catch people’s attention, [More]
