Disturbing optical illusion with black and white circle revealing a hidden number – and people seeing it differently

Optical illusions are taking social media by storm as thousands of users share different views on what they’re seeing.

Twitter user Benonwine shared an image of a black and white circle that appears to show hidden numbers, but everyone can’t seem to agree on what numbers they’re seeing.

The circle has a zigzag pattern black and white interlaced to create the illusion that the photo is moving. Inside the circle are hidden numbers, some obscured by patterns.

“Do you see a number?” Benonwine wrote. “If so, what number?”

Users in the comments disputed the amount contained in the photo. One user wrote: “45 283… and what’s hot? Should I make an appointment with my GP?”

In response, another user said: “Yes, because you missed a digit”.

Another user claimed to have seen more numbers. “3452839. I have more trouble remembering what I saw than seeing it,” they said. “Can only remember 2 numbers at once. Great eyesight. Bad memory.”

One user hypothesized that the numbers a person sees might depend on their “contrast sensitivity”.

“It can be checked by ophthalmologists,” said the user. “Worth to do if you’re having trouble, as it can affect your ability to see at night or in rain, fog, etc.”

According to Science Direct, contrast sensitivity is a measure of a person’s ability to distinguish an object from its background.

Certain eye-related conditions or diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, or diabetic retinopathy can affect a person’s contrast sensitivity.

Out of all the debate, however, one user took the opportunity to make a joke.

“It just says ‘KILL’.” wrote for users, a reference to the popular “Yanny or Laurel” meme.
