Cognitive illusions can be as strong as visual illusions — even if you know you have them, you can’t stop your mind from producing them. Here is a 38 seconds visual illusion (my first YouTube video attempt).
To make this illusion, I playfully used a fantastic picture of Luke Muehlhauser over at Common Sense Atheism. Thus I have named the illusion “The Muehlhauser Illusion”.
