The Internet Is Losing Its Mind Over This Pic Of 6 Friends And 2 Missing Legs


There is an illusion going viral on the interweb, making everyone's brain crash like Windows 98 from too many porno viruses.


The illusion, like all photographs of its ilk, was discovered on Reddit.

The picture is of six young women, and 10 legs. Most women have two legs each, meaning — and I'm sorry if I am over-explaining — there should be a total of 12 legs in this photograph. But there aren't.

Look closer.






What sorcery is this?


Here is what I think is happening in this picture.


But, is there really one truth? Or is my truth different from your truth? As we learned with #thedress, perception is key.

To help you in deciphering this illusionary riddle, I will now provide you with a series of provocative and very vague quotes about perception, reality and the shifting nature of human existence.

Here you go:

All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream. ― Edgar Allan Poe


The more I see, the less I know for sure. ― John Lennon


All things are subject to interpretation. Whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth. ― Friedrich Nietzsche

Oh fuck, good point.

Maybe each human being lives in a unique world, a private world different from those inhabited and experienced by all other humans... If reality differs from person to person, can we speak of reality singular, or shouldn't we really be talking about plural realities? And if there are plural realities, are some more true (more real) than others? ― Philip K. Dick


There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception. ― Aldous Huxley

A+ brain work, Al.

It's all in the mind. ― George Harrison


Dream delivers us to dream, and there is no end to illusion. Life is like a train of moods like a string of beads, and, as we pass through them, they prove to be many-colored lenses which paint the world their own hue. . . . ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

THERE's Waldo.

Chaos is merely order waiting to be deciphered. ― José Saramago, The Double

Very good point, José.

Thx, guys. V helpful.
