Behind the Tricks of the Eyes

Want to learn the secrets to many optical illusions?  (Sure you do.) Discover what's behind the tricks of the eyes?  Well, human eyes, anyway. We felines have better things to do.  Like eat supper. That's your cue, minions.  Canned tuna-in-oil, if you please.  Now would be better.

All you peeps out there probably want to know more about the book to which I was alluding. We've got a book trailer for that.

MPL Book Trailer #235
The New Book of Optical Illusions,
by Georg Rüschemeyer

This wonderfully illustrated book has the story behind many amazing optical illusions.  It's simply mind-boggling how the human brain can interpret ambiguous visual data.  For us kitties, we don't let our minds run amok like that.  When we see strange visual stimuli, we either run and hide, or we curl-up for a nap.  Cognitive dissonance solved.

The book is available to checkout from our Evergreen Indiana catalog. Give it a look-see. Don't be surprised if it looks right back at'cha.

P.S.  The Music Man, who composes original music for our videos, has written a percussion ensemble with female choir called The Optical Illusion (2014), which is available on music CD (and sheet music) to checkout from our Evergreen Indiana catalog.  You heard the first movement (partially) in our book trailer above.  You might enjoy listening to the other two movements, too.  It does for your ears what optical illusions do for your eyes.
