Optical Illusion

Mind Movement: If you look at the following picture, you will be stunned . . . its a simple jpeg -- not animated. Your brain is what makes it appear to rotate.

To test this, stare at one spot for a couple seconds and everything will stop moving. Or look at the black center of each circle -- it will stop moving. But move your eyes to the next black center and the previous will move after you take your eyes away from it . . . Its just weird.

Waw that's terrible! Even if you know that it doesn't just can't prevent your brain to tell you that it does!
Sorry if my english reaction isn't very clear, but I'm not sure I could have done something better in french^^
I found your website while I was looking for cyborg pictures so as to write an english essay...Anyway, it was really interesting!
"Bonne continuation"
