Seeing Is Believing

Anotonio Zamora produced a series of paradoxes and illusions in a website called "Seeing is Believing." The illusions give a sense for the reader of altered perception; how an individual cannot trust his or her senses to allow the truth of reality. This suggests the old phrase, "seeing is believing" to be inherently flawed as reality even when seen with the eyes, can be completely different than what it appears. The site also offers a short introduction further supporting the overall theme of illusion and paradox. "This page illustrates that our visual perception cannot always be trusted. The components of an object can distort the perception of the complete object. Our mind is the final arbiter of truth" (Zamora, 2006).

Most optical illusions result from fives kinds of design elements like incongruence at contrary ends of parallel lines. The second being the influence of contextual patterns on overall design. The third as explained by Zamora, the modification of perception at the restrictions of zones of high contrast. Fourth and fifth are, "afterimages resulting from eye movements or from kinetic displays,...


The best part of looking at the site remains the constant demonstration of illusions as the words take second seat to the various images on screen. A fun and enjoyable experience truly do create altered perception.

The best representation of mind-brain that seems closest to reality is "There are no gray spots at the corners of the squares" model. Essentially, the brain adds another element to image allowing the person viewing the image to see gray spots that never existed. This is a great way to represent how the human mind works, and reality in general. So many people think and believe in things that never there, lending a host of actions and consequences based on imagined things. The gray squares never existed much as if most of the memories in the human mind never existed, at least not exact as one remembers it.

Reality is like the black squares, just black, there is no grey area in between, and it just is. A person's interpretation of something does not alter reality, it just adds to the human experience. Subjective interaction, subjective memory is far different from objective reality. What feels real to a person can be nonexistent…

Aristoxenos, two centuries after Pythagoras released his model, sought to discredit the standing theories held by Pythagorean devotees. In his works, he established that numbers are not relevant to music, and that music is based on perception of what one hears, not any mathematical equation. Descartes as well as Vincenzo Galilei (Galileo's father) both also discredited the music-to-math theories that formed the revolutionary basis for Pythagoras' music work, but not
