Don’t believe your eyes they lie to your brain

Don’t believe your eyes they lie to your brain. The saying Seeing is believing isn’t true. Like many other sayings, it’s simply incorrect. If you haven’t done so already you need to watch the video clip.

So what’s going on? Are the clips actually different? Is it that your brain does not believe your eyes. Or does the brain simply get it wrong?

On this occasion, your eyes see exactly the same thing on both occasions. But your ears hear different sounds during both video clips. Your brain then gets its self muddled up.

It decides to believe your eyes and ignore your ears. This is weird but wait it gets weirder. Even though you know it’s an illusion you will be fooled again. So much for The Who saying I won’t get fooled again. Because technically speaking they are incorrect.

This so called optical illusion has a name. The scientific community call it The McGurk Effect. So from now on remember Siliconhell has proven “Don’t believe your eyes they lie to your brain”.
