Hole in Focus, Magnified Spot Optical Illusion
Looking through a hole into a different dimension
The soft feathered inner image in this illusion looks blurry, out of focus and almost as if it is raised off the page in a 3D sort of way due to the sharp contrast and clear cut lines of the outer image. This tricks your eyes and the circle appears to be vibrating and shaking around when you look at or near the edge of the circle or toward the corners of the square

Optical Illusions And Magic
Optical illusions and stage magic have the same goal of amazing and fascinating the mind's eye.
Magicians are experts in illusion. Their main goal is to deceive the viewer and make them perceive that which the magician desires.
Optical illusions are often used as or in props in magic tricks to confuse the spectator so they miss a slight of hand or quick dexterous movements to achieve the desired visual effect.
Magicians have amazed crowds for generations with amazing feats like sawing a woman in half and recombining her in front of the spectators or making a person, animal or even an inanimate object like an airplane disappear then re-appear at the magicians will.
Then there is street magic like that of David Blain with his levitation trick or making something mysteriously go through a storefront plate glass window without breaking.
Optical Illusions And Magic are produced and performed for your amazement and pleasure.
