Whoa!! There most definitely are circles, it just appears they are all connected when in fact they are not.

@skine

There are circles...the squares are put to perform 4 non connecting circles...but somehow it seems on top of each other or connected...even if they are not...:D

the real optical illusion is that one can see circles from the pattern of squares.


There is no circle.

Technically a point doesn`t have a size, just a location, so if I understand what you are saying about the points extending beyond the edge of the circle itself, you would be incorrect.

> If you were to put a dot in the center of every square and then connect the dots, they would make perfect circles

No they wouldn`t, they`d make polyhedrons, like a hexagon, octagon or dodecahedron but with more sides. Unless you joined the dots with bezier arcs of exactly the right radii, but even then, the perimeters of the tiny dots would extrude beyond the area of the circle the points of which are defined by the centre of each individual tiny dot.

Great optical illusion; one of the best in a long time contributed to I-A-B. I wonder; are they in the process of making a comeback?

I remember stumbling across a MySpace page awhile back and perusing as many of the 60-100 PAGES of such images one enthusiast had; what was the point? Did he really expect every viewer to make it through alive?

Ahh, I suppose those 3 * 1/2 L beers and a couple of glasses of red wine helped. I can see the circles as well as why they might be weird.

"Seriously? People have to concentrate to see the four cirles? I just see them."

If you were to put a dot in the center of every square and then connect the dots, they would make perfect circles..

They can`t be "perfectly round circles" if they have jagged edges, that makes them irregular sawtooth elipses or regular reentrant polygons.

It is possible to see all of them at one time it does take a bit of effort though.

They`re supposed to look like they`re overlapping, I think - but they`re concentric. Trace them with your finger if you can`t see.
