Optical illusions are visual phenomena where our brain perceives something different from reality.
They can fool us into thinking things aren't really there, or they can trick our eyes into seeing things that don't exist.
In ancient times, people alluded to these optical illusions as witchcraft, demons, or evil spirits. Later, scientists discovered that our brains play tricks on us and it all happens because of different perceptions.
Optical illusion pictures are often created using simple shapes such as triangles, circles, squares, rectangles, etc. These shapes are then arranged in various ways to create the illusion.
