The illusion of movement

Added Fri, 14/06/2019
Version type

Our brain, based on the experience of perception, takes the characteristic of approximation / removal of parameters depicted object for real movement. The illusion may work on circular objects, if they caused the picture imitating the play of light and shadow when rotating a round, flat object. At the same time, if you focus on a single site, the illusion of rotation on it immediately disappears.

This principle works not only when moving the head, but the motion of the person, if the picture of such a principle is found in the elements of the landscape.
