The phrase “appearance is deceiving” is often used for humans, but it also applies to optical illusions that tend to mess with your mind. You can keep looking at them all day and not be able to decipher exactly what exactly the picture is. Nowadays, optical illusions are becoming more and more popular on social media, and we present to you yet another image. So if you’re bored, we’ve got the best to scramble your mind tonight.

A simple picture of a flowing river has caused the internet to lose its mind as people are unable to decide which side the river is flowing. The image, which was shared on Reddit, at first glance looks like a simple photograph of a waterfall.

However, if you look closely, you have a hard time determining which way the water in the river is flowing. Looking at the image on the right, the water seems to be flowing to the left. If you start from the left side of the image, it seems to run in the opposite direction.

The photograph was uploaded to Reddit, with the poster asking people to guess which side the river flowed from. Many were puzzled, with some thinking the water had to flow both ways. The image is an example of an “ambiguous illusion”, which occurs when images can change from one thing to another depending on how a person perceives them.

Because the image lacks depth or directional cues from the surroundings, the viewer must determine which way the water is flowing. Although the person who took the snap answers best which way the river flows, now you at least know why the river seems to flow both ways.
