The illusion of perspective

Explanation of some of these illusions based on the human tendency to perceive as more major what is next, taking into account the effect of perspective. It makes our brain it is a mistake to exaggerate the size of two equal subjects, which is more removed.

Shapes are perceived different in size, because the observer knows from experience that the indirect signals are usually given information about perspective and distance. Much of what people "see" around itself, is the result of past experience. Even if experience does not match this situation, it is, nevertheless, used.

Such objects can be perceived as something paranormal, like in real life or on a photo or video.
