23 mind-blowing optical illusions for you

It is well known that the brain can deceive us, same thing happens with the sight, smell , in short it can happen with everything, perhaps we live deceived from the moment we were born (perhaps..). It is said that reality is what we can touch and feel but sometimes even that deceives. Anyways, that’s a long story for a lazy penguin like me and it will be tough to explain, but I will give you some examples (actually 23) where you can see that the things are not what they seem to be. “HT” distractify, viralnova
