This Illustrates That
Our senses cannot always be trusted.
Our mind is the final arbiter of truth.


Perpetually ascending staircase.


How can the man go up all the time and come back to the same place over and over?

Wavy Squares? No!

The background of concentric circles makes the squares appear distorted.

Rotating Wheels


The circles appear to rotate when you move your head closer and further away from the screen while looking at the dot in the center.
