If you look at this upside-down version of Abraham Lincoln’s face, you won’t notice anything strange about it. Scientists say it has something to do with our brain percipating upside-down version of a face as an object, instead of human form. On the other hand, when you rotate the image, you will notice some pretty weird stuff going on! Go inside the post to see the effect. Earlier I gave you simmilar illusion called “Scheibe Illusion”.

      Totally astounding! Extremely interesting and who noticed this first and foremost? Doesn’t matter, quite the genious I feel more than assured.Thank you for sharing.

  2. Jeff says:

    Well, when it’s upside down the eye shadows are in the right place, but when it’s flipped right side up, the shadow didn’t change position, so it looked weird.

  3. Farted says:

    second ones freaky dude like me dad (just kiddin folks!)
    I can’t see the ‘weird stuff’ going on in this pic, but another illusion might not’ve been posted here, but it’s EXACTLY like this one. STARRIN’: Mona Lisa! The person who sent this in got a report, it told him this: The guy who created this website said that leonardo thought Mona Lisa would be a bit upset about makin’ an illusion out of her. He might of been right, might not, but if he was, Lisa is such a MONA! (geddit?) I love illusions!
    P.S My job is to burn rubber, so don’t gimme a rubber battery!
    I’m all comedy!

    Yours sincerely,

    Burnin’ Rubber!

    this gives u a completely different perspective of lincoln….thats 4 sure….strage how a simple rotation can change so much

  27. Anonymous says:

    I kind of wish you would not post something like this,it feels kind of disrespectful.Now that I thought about it.Thanks for sharing it anyways.

    :)

  28. bedek78 says:

    I don’t get it… Why do you all think it’s scary at all?? The second picture is supposed to show Lincoln frowning with his eyes closed… not with his eyes bulging out…

    The eyes on the 1st pic is the eyelid on the 2nd pic… which makes the illusion smart, not scary.

  29. Anonymous says:

    I don’t understand you people, not scary at all. It is just a very stern looking Lincoln, with some awesome transparent shades (sunglasses) on. Seriously.

  30. pchp7 says:

  31. PaperMoon says:

  32. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT says:

    OK HERES THE ANSER EVERYONE: THE BRAIN SEES THE FIRST IMAGE CORRECT NOT SPOOKY,BUT WHEN IT SEES THE SECOND IMAGE THE BRAIN NOTICES THAT
    THE MOUTH,LIPS,EYES,AND EYEBROWS,ARE UPSIDE DOWN.THEN YOU DONT NOTICE IT UNTIL THE
    BRAIN ACTULLY SEES THAT THERE IS SOME THING WRONG WITH THE OPTICAL ILLUSION.
    YOU THEN SEE IT WHEN YOU FIRST SEE THE OPTICAL ILLUSION CONSIDERING THE BRAIN KNOWS IT IN FIRST SIGHT.THEN,YOU THINK THAT IS REALLY SCARY, IF YOU SEE IT FIRST TIME, LIKE MOST PEOPLE.DO NOT FEEL ASHAMED IF YOU ARE SCARED,
    CONSIDERING MOST PEOPLE ARE TOO.
    HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE EVERYONE!
