You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes

When one sees a visual illusion, one experiences a frisson which I believe communicates knowledge to ourselves. The following illusion is but one of many that exist out there, and its effect is quite startling. It’s a shame that philosophers have often taken the existence of illusions as a gateway to question the possibility of perception at all. This binary manner of looking at perception and accuracy, either all or nothing at all, misses the individual complexity and interest of each illusion.
