Visual Optical Illusion: Did you see the Spinning Discs or Rotating Snakes?

An optical illusion is a perplexing representation of a thing, a drawing, or a photograph that appears differently depending on the angle from which it is seen.

There are many different kinds of optical illusions, including cognitive, physiological, and physical ones.

Because they reveal some aspects of your psyche, these visual illusions fall under the purview of psychoanalysis.

A typical human brain is capable of viewing objects or images from various angles, creating various perceptions.

The Rotating Snakes optical illusion, created by Professor Akiyoshi Kitaoka in 2003, is one such ingenious example.

Professor Akiyoshi Kitaoka created the following image in 2003 as an example of his rotating snakes optical illusion.

The "snakes" in this peripheral drift illusion are made up of numerous colored bands that collectively resemble coiling serpents.

Although the image is still, it appears as though the snakes are moving around. The frequency of microsaccadic eye movements determines how quickly motion is perceived to be moving.
