5. Out Of Focus Illusion

What To Do: As you bring your eyes closer to this disk in the middle of the image you start to notice distortion and the disk will look more blurry as if you zoomed in.

1. Spiral World Optical Illusion

What To Do: This is the most amazing illusion I have ever seen. The previous illusions were just between you and screen, but this one will be between you and the reality. So follow the instructions carefully. Focus on the center of this spiral while relaxing your body and breathing slowly. Do this for about 20 seconds. Now look at anything around. Incredible isn’t it?

in rotating snakes..the image should be moved not held stationary…or only the central dot must be observed


Focus on one of the black dots and the image stops moving.

If you do something observe it was easy for me and it stopped moving I stared at it and the Circle went stopping like a shutted down fan.
