- Nothing is What it Seems Like -
The American psychologist Joseph Jestro designed the famous Duck-Rabbit illusion. He wanted to show and prove with thisillusion that our brain cannot simultaneously see both images.
During the observation people usually see one animal, first, and then, when they are sidy that on the picture is another animal, then they register it. But again they cannot see that the first animal. The explanation for previously told lies in the fact that, our brain is trying to interpret optical stimuli as a meaningful whole.
That is achieved by spotting the familiar forms and decision- making in accordance with it. Figure illusion duck - rabbit is so arranged that, in fact, using both versions can perceive a meaningful whole.
