When what you see doesn't quite match the real image, and your brain is trying to figure out what's going on so that you can make sense of the world, it's called an optical illusion.
Finding these entertaining images has become my favorite hobby.
These images are quite misleading, but figuring out what they're actually showing will give your brain a workout and improve your perception.
There is a new optical illusion circulating around the internet, and it's baffling social media users around the world.
To be honest, I got the answer wrong, but it's reassuring to know that I'm not the only one.
This image of a blue, green, and white door or beach is seriously dividing people.
These colors are supposed to be extremely comforting, but not when it's an optical illusion.
People are stressed trying to figure out the answer because, according to a poll posted on Twitter by the person who took the photo (rebeccareilly_), 46% of people think it's a beach, and 54% think it's a door.
The viral image so far has been liked more than 30,000 times and has more than 19,000 comments.
No one can agree on what this photo is actually of:
I've been staring at this & flipping my phone around for like 6 minutes. Door or Beach? pic.twitter.com/6CaAujTVV2— slim. (@KILAHstaysBASED) August 29, 2018

It ain't a beach. For sure about that— Amaru (@calm_the_lion) August 29, 2018
Are you ready for the answer?
Becky posted a different angle of the image, putting an end to all the confusion.
Are you shocked that the answer is a beach? Trust me, you're not the only one.
