SCIENCE SIDE OF TUMBLR EXPLAIN THIS WITCHCRAFT

Wtf

Dear http://poorblood-richsoul.tumblr.com Explanation;

This psychedelic hallucination is known as motion aftereffects. Which is what makes you see movement in objects that are stationary.

The science;

When you were watching the first image, the brain cells (neurons) that detect and code motion in the directions of what you were seeing became tired and reduced their response the longer you looked at the trippy gif. This process of your neurons getting lazy is called Neural adaption.

After you looked away, the brain cells (neurons) that detect motion in the directions you did not have any long-exposure to became more active than the ones that you tired out. This is why the stationary object appears to be moving.

You’re welcome.
