Have You Ever Tested Yourself With This Quick Visual Effect Trick?

Visual effect

Look at the picture: There are 12 black dots on the grid, but no matter how hard you try, you will not be able to see them all at once.

The effect, frustrating to say, stems from the fact that focusing on a point in the center of the visual field causes the visual system of the brain to “fill out” what is happening around it. ┬áSince the dots are surrounded by a fixed pattern of lines, the brain simply assumes that this fills the gap, and automatically removes┬áthe other black dots.

Though it may be extremely frustrating at first, we guarantee you won’t be able to overcome the challenge and see all the black dots at the same time. It doesn’t matter how hard or long you try. Our brains are simply hardwired to work a certain way and you can’t beat biology.

Still, it’s a pretty neat visual effect trick, right?
