Writes Matt, "...CAN OFTEN TRUMP WHAT IS". Quote:
I love optical illusions. Here’s why: The white circles that you see in the rather incomplete grid below don’t really exist. Neither do the white diagonal lines you see connecting them. Yet what isn’t really there is the most interesting part of the image.
The reason it’s so interesting isn’t just that you see the white circles and diagonals, it’s that ␣␣␣␣␣␣␣␣ does. And even if I tell you to focus only on the drawn lines and completely ignore the space between them, your brain will override the order. So will everyone else’s.
