This “political cartoon” you see below is actually an optical illusion based on an old optical trick that some of you may have seen before (remember original Jesus Illusion). The primary image is the Twin Towers during the attacks six years go, on September 11th, 2001. But as you see, in the sky over the towers is a specter that forms in the mind as an “after-image” when you stare at it long enough. Works in a same way all those other afterimages worked.

To experience this optical illusion, look at the top middle of the image – look at the four tiny black dots that run in a line between the hearts. Now stare at the dots very close, for about 6 inches from your screen. Keep your focus on the dots for a minute or so, then, look away from the monitor at a bright blank wall. You may need to blink a few times, but then specter that George W. Bush sees in the events of September 11th, will appear in front of you… Amazing!

    thats really sweet. 9/11 was really sad. i was only in fourth grade when it happened and i like all the other kids had no idea what was going on.I dunno if anyone else noticed this but I think its kinda funny how the smoke is shaped like the map of Iran…? I dunno..

    I don’t know about you guys, but what I saw in the after image looked nothing like George W. Bush…

    It’s awesome how this illusion is a combination of 2 others.

    So Jesus did it? And all this time we’ve been after Saddam… er, Bin Laden.

  14. Bettina says:

    So we know that jesus illusion, but what’s so new about putting it on top of the twin towers just because it’s september 11?
    don’t see the point.

    Nice illusion.

    Hope you’re not trying to turn this site into a podium for your political beliefs with the “specter that George W. Bush sees in the events of September 11th”. There are plenty of other websites for that

    wow thats so cool! except now when i close my eyes all i can see is Jesus and it looks like there is a blurry Jesus in the white of my computer screen as well!

    It is so freaky that I don’t like it!

    All i can see is jesus what else can i see?!

  21. RAWWWWRRRR says:

    I’m very confused.

  22. Phil says:

    **spoiler**
    after looking at the four little dots for a minute and then looking at a white wall, to me it looked like i was seeing a mushroom cloud…which would make sense with the whole bush reference.

  23. KernowBoy says:

    i see it, but i don’t see how you don’t see it, it’s sooooo obvious, what’s it supposed to be disguised as??

  24. Mister E.P. says:

    I think this it cool – but what are we supposed to see? everything looks as plain as day to me tho :)

    I think it is really fucked up that our own government would orchestrate something like 9/11 just so our minds would be weak enough from the psychological attack that we’d follow their plan like a mass of sleeping sheep. People need to stop pointing fingers at other countries and start lookin within. My thoughts are with those who died on that day for NO GOOD REASON!

  25. Ian says:

    Ian
    I wonder what people see who have no christian background,and have never seen the sterotypical pictures of Jesus.

  26. Joey says:

    i duno if anyone else is the same but with all the jesus after-image illusions ive seen, i could already see a picture of jesus so its not that good really

  27. Anonymous says:

    that is so cool and i can actually see him, i hate him bytheway all he cares about is himself. except for on 9-11

  28. Anonymous says:

    Can someone explain how this is an illusion?? I see Jesus on a cross and the two towers, but neither are hard to see! I’d also think it’s kind of tasteless combining jesus and 9/11.

    Or am i all wrong? Is this just Jesus with a big fire crouch?

  29. NAME says:

    its like the ghost of jesus is rising from the twin towers

  30. Anonymous says:

    I don’t understand. I don’t see George W. Bush – I see Jesus. Where did this come from? It’s a little insulting.

  31. Billy says:

    NO Its Not A Scary Man Or Bush And Kitty Kat Isnt Even a muslim Name!

    Yeah, I was only in fourth grade when 9/11 happened. This however is awesome except it’s hard to tell it was the twin towers if you weren’t told so. Still pretty awesome.

    I’m not really sure what I’m seeing…

  34. otowi says:

    Yes, I’m Muslim. But Muslims revere Jesus very much, just don’t believe he died on the cross.

    When I first started looking at it, I saw Jesus. Then after a minute, I saw him on my wall. It was really cool! =) lol

  36. shannon says:

    The original jesus one, which I have seen before, always works for me. This one I didn’t get anything from though. Strange. Yes 9-11 was a very sad day.

  37. kitty cat says:

    To everyone who has accused me…
    I am sorry if i have insulted any of you all,and i think that this illusion is very impressive… And just so you would know, i am very open to all religions. Actually my bests friend is christian! :D

    Hey Mister E.P. If you really think that our government was behind the attack, how could you still live in this country? I’ve have never heard such ignorance. I agree though, let’s have fun here and leave politics out of it. Shame on you Mister E.P. and those like you.

    9-11 was a sad day…but the reason we remember it isn’t because of the deaths, but because it was a moment that will always remind us that there’s the good and bad, and either way, we can’t forget them, but we CAN move on~ I didn’t know what happened cause I think I was only in secong grade at the time. By the way…9-11′s also hitler’s b-day!

    9-11 isn’t Hitlers b-day. . . He was born April 20, 1889.

    I suppose it was inevitable, given the nature of the illusion, that the comments would take the turn they did. I am disappointed, however, in the fact that some of the contributors are making claims without doing proper research.
    First, while I’ll concede that the “Government Planned 9-11″ theory was bound to be considered, it doesn’t hold water. To believe that theory, one must believe that the U.S. government, which has not been able to keep a lid on NSA wiretaps and military irregularities at Abu Ghraib, was able to plan and execute an incredibly complex attack on our own soil, planting bombs on two occupied buildings, and nobody saw anything or nobody’s talking. Preposterous!
    Second, you’re going to make a claim like “9-11′s also hitler’s b-day”, do some research! Hitler was born on April 20th.
    Sorry people. Just my 2 cents.
    It is an interesting illusion that can be interpreted a variety of ways.

  52. Anonymous says:

    The thing that is so stupid about this, is the Jesus part is just stuck in the middle of the two buildings. It is not like it blends in to the picture and when you stare at it you see the illusion. Someone just pasted a negative of Jesus between a cartoon of the WTC. How lame.

    Theres an easy way to do this. Copy and paste it into paint then press ctrl + I, this will invert the colours so you can see it, it’s exactly what your eyes do when you stare away.

    THAT’S STUPID. THERE ISN’T ANYTHING COOL ABOUT IT. YOU CAN TAKE ANY PICTURE AND INVERT THE COLORS TO MAKE YOU SEE IT WITH YOUR AFTERIMAGERY IN YOUR EYES. IT’S JUST THE ORIGINAL JESUS ONE WITH ARMS AND A COUPLE NEGATIVE RECTANGLES. I’M ASHAMED AT THE STUPIDITY OF PEOPLE THESE DAYS. YOU’RE ALL SAPS. THERE’S NO MAGIC INVOLVED OR ANYTHING MYSTERIOUS IN THIS. THIS ISN’T A RELIGIOUS SCIENCE. IT’S A PROVEN OPTICAL ILLUSION AND THERE’S A SCIENTIFIC REASON BEHIND IT. AFTER YOU STARE AT IT FOR A WHILE, YOUR BRAIN CONTINUES TO EXPECT THOSE COLORS AND PRODUCES THE SAME SHAPE IN THE COLORS OPPOSITE ON A COLOR WHEEL TO RELIEVE STRESS ON YOUR EYES.

    Um, to all you geniuses who think they are supposed to see Bush, learn to read.
    Aside from that, this illusion is not so much an illusion and pretty lame.
    And seriously, did this have to go political? Some of you are barely in high school, and have no idea what the world is like. All you are aware of in high school is the filtered education system that America offers. Watching TV or reading your textbooks does not inform you of the truth of anything that goes on in the world. Trust me, I was an army wife long enough to know that the media is incorrect.

    a. it’s supposed to look like Jesus, not George W. Bush.

    b. the phrase “but then specter that George W. Bush sees in the events of September 11th, will appear in front of you…” means the George W. Bush saw it on 9/11.

  70. Axl Rose says:

    uhm… it´s jesus, NOT George W. Bush… and i was able to see him even before looking at the image and then to a wall…

    not very good in my opinion.
