Be sincere, what whas the first thing you thought for yourself, when seeing this image? I was sure it was just an oridnary spirall, but when observing it more precise, I figured out it’s actually a bunch of concentric circles… Hillarious! Did you get the same effect?


  • Josu

    That’s one of the better ones I’ve seen.

    Can someone explain why do we see spirals first?

    i’d love to know.

    • Lucy

      i think its because the squares are at an angle :)

    • yasmine

      its both the squares are inn a spiral thats a circcle

    • wjefhjnrsbh

      its circles

  • Phil

    The eye tends to follow straight lines. Since the boxes are slightly twisted, your eye follows the edge of the box inward from the circle, making your mind think “spiral”.

  • Carl C.

    Now that is a cool illusion.

    Also, if you scroll the page up and down over the image, you can sort of see a rotation effect happening.

  • Fabio R.

    WOW! that is so cool.

  • Rachel

    That’s pretty sweet. Saw the spiral first, and it looked normal… now, it just hurts my eyes, but I can tell it’s circles.

  • Curli

    Clever.

    I really had to concentrate to see the circles and not the spiral.

  • Alex

    that is pretty cool… have anyothers like that???

  • Alex

    that is pretty cool./… how do u c that

  • Pandas

    actually, i thought that it was rotating first, but mabey i’ve been looking at optical illusions for too long

  • no likey name

    best illusion that is actually an illusion in a long time

  • Tammy

    i think summits wrong with my eyes coz i saw the circles first……anywho if my eyes worked then i’m sure it would have been a good un :)

  • Telisha

    wow confuzing :S

  • Deanna

    Wow, that’s cool…confusing, though. I actually had to trace the circles with my finger to make myself believe it wasn’t a spiral! Haha.

  • Ouch

    This makes my brain bleed

  • Anonymous

    I never saw a spiral. It always looked like circles to me. Now that I’m trying, I can kind of make myself see a spiral…

  • Chris

    hi, i was looking at this optical illusion, and then i scrolled the screen and noticed that while the image is moving up or down, the spiral seems to be spinning, is it just me?

  • Anonymous

    whoa, thats kinda creepy.

  • Anonymous

    duh it’s squares.

  • Will

    when you scroll the page using the mouse-wheel (especially one with choppy movements), the circles give the illusion of spinning

  • Anonymous

    this is so cool it almost hypniotised me

  • Trevor

    Strangely I didn’t see the spiral first I saw circles, but when I looked at the picture the first thing I saw was the center circle and then went straight down the picture and realized it was only circles…

  • Anonymous

  • Anonymous

    God : Proof of existence!

    Everything we know (through our 5 senses) can
    be described through its attributes. There is a minimum of these attributes essential to classify. For example, four legged with a tail, would refer to a class of animals. Adding to it one more attribute that it barks, brays, roars, mews, etc. would immediately give the idea of what we are referring to.
    Even for the atheist God can be defined as that which cannot be reached or realized. Physicist’s defintion: Absolute Zero (0 degrees Kelvin) cannot be reached by the third Law of Thermodynamics. So,
    God = Absolute 0 deg K.
    Mathematician’s definition: Infinity is a limit to which you can neither add or subtract anything to make it bigger or smaller. It is a limit (in Hindu philosophy millennia before Newton’s calculus) which cannot be reached.
    The Sanskrit words Nirgunabrahmam (no attributes) and sathguna brahmam (all attributes) are the limits. So,
    God = Infinity.

    I thought it was a “Spiral” too! If people would not have pointed out the fact that it was “Circles”, I probably would NEVER have noticed that it was not a “Spiral”! LOL!!!! Nice One!!!
