All you might want to do is stare on the light bulb for 25 seconds, then instantly stare at a clean white wall and wait for a mysterious illusion to appear.

What do you see?

For some it might take a couple of goes, but finally you need to see a glowing light bulb, according to the site, Optics4Kids.

So, how exactly do our brains decipher optical illusions?

First, optical illusions can use color, light, and patterns to hack the mind.

The information gathered by the eye is processed by the mind, making a perception that in actuality, doesn’t match the true picture,” the site reads.

“Optical illusions occur as a result of our brain is attempting to interpret what we see and make sense of the world around us. Optical illusions easily trick our brains into seeing things which may or may not be actual.”

Based on illusions.org our brains decipher negative and positive pictures in an interesting approach.

A similar process is seen within the optical illusion of a black and white look of the Queen.

As with The Face of Jesus and The Queen’s face, we reverse the negative image and switch it into positive,” the site explains.

“With the light bulb illusion, the glass of the bulb is a big area of black, so that after we look away, the reversal ends in a dazzling bulb.”
