A brain syndrome called mirrored touch synaesthesia causes people to physically feel what other people are feeling just by looking at them. For example, a person can look at a dog and fee fur texture on his palms, this is an involuntary response. Brain automatically fills in what it thinks the dog feels like without needing to touch it. Sometimes people also have mirror-taste, so they can look at something and “taste” it in their mouth.

This illusion tricks your brain into time travel

Science Alert claims this illusions mimics time travel in the brain:

In the Illusory Rabbit, the middle flash never happens, but most people still think they saw three flashes to match three beeps.

In the Invisible Rabbit, it’s the middle beep that is missed – and the brain usually thinks there was no middle flash either.

The fact that the middle beep or flash IS getting manipulated shows postdiction at work – it’s actually the last flash and beep that causes the illusion to happen. They make our brain alter what it perceived in the past.
