Nature holds a great deal of wonders and we are slowly but surely beginning to understand the science behind them. Almost every trick and every illusion has a logical explanation behind it, no matter how surreal it might seem. Just think about the rainbow.

If we deconstruct the science behind this multicolored circular arc, we would learn that it has everything to do with reflection, refraction and dispersion of the light in the water droplets in the sky. What this means is that the light beam that enters the droplet first changes its direction, then gets reflected in the back of the droplet and gets refracted once again in the process of leaving it. This process allows us to see all of those beautiful colors which start with the red one at the highest part of the arc, and a violet one at the bottom. The rainbow usually appears at the opposite side of where the sun comes. It can appear as a semicircle, multiple semicircles which have an inverted order of colors and even a full circle.

Similar to how the rainbow can trick our mind into believing that it is surreal, magic tricks along with optical illusions might fall in the same category, taken into consideration that both can deceive your eyes. It is also a fact that they are very, very interesting to watch. We can always use a little cheering up and going to a show, where we can see things that we strongly believe that are real but usually come to understand that all of that was a lie. Magic, especially illusion tricks, tend to hide behind reality and the truth which makes it even funnier to see.

Back in the day we had to go out of our way to purchase tickets and spend money for these sorts of performances, whereas nowadays it is easy to come across such a spectacle by only connecting to the internet and searching for videos of that category. If we search the world wide web, we may find illusions that will definitely question our sanity, but we mustn’t forget that there is always an explanation.

An optical illusion (also called a visual illusion) is an illusion caused by the visual system and characterized by a visual precept that (loosely said) appears to differ from reality. Illusions come in a wide variety, their categorization is difficult because the underlying cause is often not clear but a classification proposed by Richard Gregory is useful as an orientation.

These are the best optical illusions. From an optical illusion that makes a flat 2D image spin to a mind trick that makes an image disappear, watch these mind blowing optical illusions as they are bound to amaze you.
