Focus on the red cross while the dots are moving around.
You're probably seeing the dots wriggling around in different directions.
But in reality they’re moving in straight trajectories without ever colliding.

To convince your brain, focus on one dot without looking at the red cross and you will see it moving in a straight line.
Scientists at Keio University in Japan found that if white circles on a black field are moved in straight lines and allowed to cross, they appear to move in straight lines.
But if those lines avoided intersections, the dots appear to wriggle around instead.

Another unexplained illusion is the 'grid' first first reported by German physiologist Ludimar Hermann in 1870, and simply involves a white grid on a black background.
As you move your eyes around the image, dark dots quickly appear and disappear at the intersections.
However, whenever you look directly on any intersection, the dark dots vanish.

I see some that move straight but most appear to be moving like, well. All over the place.

And I think it's gave me a migraine


Honestly though I do love stuff like this, who comes up with these ideas? is it by chance or is someone somewhere getting payed to twist peoples minds by altering what you perceive to be true?

Stare at the center of one of those two pics for a minute straight.... Then look at a white wall...

Eye burn in is nifty

I stared at the cross for a good while and they ALL appear to be moving in straight lines... Which they are.
I'm not understanding why people think the dots are wriggling around in random directions.
