8 Mind-Boggling Optical Illusions

If you want to play with your eyes and get the feeling of having cross-eye try this 8 Mind-Boggling Optical Illusions, I'm sure your boredom will disappear. What your eyes perceive when looking at one of these images is actually a visual illusion; you see the image as something different than what it is because the different cells and receptors in your eyes distinguish images and colors at dissimilar speeds. The eye can only receive a limited amount of visual stimuli, but as your brain constantly processes the visual information, it gives you the illusion of continuous sight. So, enjoy and don't absorb all of it in one sitting you might get cross eyed waaaa just kidding.
