When you look at something, what you actually see is light that has bounced off that thing and entered your eye. The latter converts light into electrical impulses that your brain can convert into an image that you can use. This process takes about a tenth of a second, but your eyes receive a huge amount of information. Therefore, it is very difficult for the brain to try to focus on everything at the same time.
Your brain takes shortcuts to help you focus on what’s important. This makes it possible to compensate for the processing delay of a tenth of a second.
Optical illusions trick the brain into taking advantage of such shortcuts.

What is the origin of the optical illusion?
The history of optical illusions dates back to the 5th century BC, when Epicharmus first presented the explanation for this phenomenon. Epicharme believed that although our mind knows and understands everything clearly, the sense organs deceive us and present an optical illusion. Another Greek philosopher of the same period, Protagoras, had a different opinion on this subject. According to him, it is not the senses, but the environment that deceives us. The views presented by Epicharmus and Protagoras added to the confusion about what optical illusions actually are.
One of the examples of optical illusions from the past is associated with the roofs of Greek temples. The roofs of these temples were built in a sloping manner. This construction method created the illusion that the roofs were horizontal. This happened because the roof and walls, when exactly perpendicular to each other, gave the illusion that the roof was arched or arched. A scientific explanation of optical illusions should help you better understand this concept.
