So, there you have it. Now, my question to you is this: Are the horizontal lines in the image above sloping or not? You see, this is a tough optical illusion, because it’s simple, but it’s confusing to our brains. It’s hard for our brains to make sense of the organization of the image above. First of all, looking at the image vertically is hard to do, because there are no even vertical lines. Secondly, the use of black and white throws off our perception, as well. In case you’re wondering, the horizontal lines are perfectly straight, but our eyes make it seem as if they’re actually sloping. However, you can even get out a ruler to measure the lines and you’ll see that they’re perfectly straight and also run the same length as each other. Did this one get you? If so, you should share this image with your friends and see if it tricks them, too.
