Optical Illusions Game is a new game that resembles the emory game, but with three bonuses: 1. Instead of a set of two the player has to find a set of four. 2. When the set is completed, the player has to puzzle the four cards into one image. 3. Presto: the four cards form an image of an optical illusion to discover and marvel at. The goal of the game is to collect four cards that form one optical illusion. The player who collects the most optical illusions wins the game. The optical illusions in this game were selected by Paul Baars, a world famous author and expert on optical illusions. For this game he has selected a broad range of mindboggling illusions from the famous classical ones to new illusions created by contemporary designers and artists. The Optical Illusions Game consists of 80 cards and 20 illusions as well as a brochure in which the illusions are shown and briefly explained.

In what he calls a "200 percent potent" teaching, Chögyam Trungpa reveals how the spiritual path is a raw and rugged "unlearning" process that draws us away from the comfort of conventional expectations and conceptual attitudes toward a naked encounter with reality. The tantric paradigm for this process is the story of the Indian master Naropa (1016–1100), who is among the enlightened teachers of the Kagyu lineage of the Tibetan Buddhism. Naropa was the leading scholar at Nalanda, the Buddhist monastic university, when he embarked upon the lonely and arduous path to enlightenment. After a series of daunting trials, he was prepared to receive the direct transmission of the awakened state of mind from his guru, Tilopa. Teachings that he received, including those known as the six doctrines of Naropa, have been passed down in the lineages of Tibetan Buddhism for a millennium. Trungpa's commentary shows the relevance of Naropa's extraordinary journey for today's practitioners who seek to follow the spiritual path. Naropa's story makes it possible to delineate in very concrete terms the various levels of spiritual development that lead to the student's readiness to meet the teacher's mind. Trungpa thus opens to Western students of Buddhism the path of devotion and surrender to the guru as the embodiment and representative of reality.

What do you do after discovering that your life is no longer your own? Do you strike back against those who are mocking your very existence, or is it best to simply play along with whatever sinister plans your captors have set before you? Max Alwell has found himself in exactly that type of situation and is finding it increasingly difficult to differentiate between nightmare and reality. Truth and lies are constantly being fed to him in a vile mixture, which only adds to the deception. Is he a guinea pig being tested for some purpose beyond his comprehension? Is he a victim who has been inserted into some nefarious game of which he has no knowledge? Or, has he reached the afterlife, where it merely slipped someone's mind to tell him that he was dead? Read more to discover the truth...

Computer games have a diverse range of genres and implementations. Many of the most popular computer games consist of time-killing puzzles targeted at mobile devices. Each game has a well-defined challenge that a user must solve in order to progress. The goal of this project is to investigate and implement a new obstacle for use in computer games, namely optical illusions. One illusion in particular, the Fraser spiral, was especially considered. Before this project, no other computer game integrating this optical illusion has been attempted. Included in this report is an overview of the design, implementation and testing involved in creating this game. A gameplay method is introduced that effectively makes use of the Fraser spiral illusion. Tests were conducted in order to investigate the impact of the illusion on user performance. The results of these tests demonstrate the plausibility of using optical illusions to increase gameplay difficulty.

A Precarious Game

A Precarious Game is an ethnographic examination of video game production. The developers Bulut researched for almost three years in a medium sized studio in the US loved making video games that millions play. However, only some can enjoy this dream job, which can be precarious and alienating for many others. That is, the passion of a predominantly white-male labor force relies on material inequalities involving the sacrificial labor of their families, unacknowledged work of precarious testers, and thousands of racialized and gendered workers in the Global South. In A Precarious Game, Bulut explores the politics of doing what one loves. Passion and love at work imply freedom, participation, and choice, but they in fact accelerate self-exploitation and can impose emotional toxicity on other workers by forcing them to work endless hours. Bulut argues that such ludic discourses in the game industry disguise the racialized and gendered inequalities on which a profitable transnational industry thrives. Work within capitalism is not just an economic matter and the political nature of employment and love can still be undemocratic even when based on mutual consent. As Bulut demonstrates, rather than considering work simply as an economic matter based on trade-offs in the workplace, we should consider work and love as a question of democracy rooted in politics.

Wiggling a pencil so that it looks like it is made of rubber, "stealing" your niece's nose, and listening for the sounds of the ocean in a conch shell– these are examples of folk illusions, youthful play forms that trade on perceptual oddities. In this groundbreaking study, K. Brandon Barker and Clairborne Rice argue that these easily overlooked instances of children's folklore offer an important avenue for studying perception and cognition in the contexts of social and embodied development. Folk illusions are traditionalized verbal and/or physical actions that are performed with the intention of creating a phantasm for one or more participants. Using a cross-disciplinary approach that combines the ethnographic methods of folklore with the empirical data of neuroscience, cognitive science, and psychology, Barker and Rice catalogue over eighty discrete folk illusions while exploring the complexities of embodied perception. Taken together as a genre of folklore, folk illusions show that people, starting from a young age, possess an awareness of the illusory tendencies of perceptual processes as well as an awareness that the distinctions between illusion and reality are always communally formed.

"Fascinating and insightful. . . . I cannot recall a book that has made me think more about the nature of thinking." -- Richard C. Lewontin Harvard University Everyone knows that optical illusions trick us because of the way we see. Now scientists have discovered that cognitive illusions, a set of biases deeply embedded in the human mind, can actually distort the way we think. In Inevitable Illusions, distinguished cognitive researcher Massimo Piattelli-Palmarini takes us on a provocative, challenging, and thoroughly entertaining exploration of the games our minds play. He opens the doors onto the newly charted realm of the cognitive unconscious to reveal the full range of illusions, showing how they inhibit our ability to reason--no matter what our educational background or IQ. Inevitable Illusions is stimulating, eye-opening food for thought.

Inspired by dwarf lore and elven splendor a dragon slips beneath the veil on a mission of destruction. The artificial intelligence of the adversary system is supposed to make Great Illusions Games a break-out success. Yet in one disastrous evening the AI Adversary brings down the Great Tree of Life and immolates himself and the entirety of the Elven Kingdom. The loss of data is immense and couldn't come at a worse time. Don Archer, the game's creative director and chief architect, has just a few weeks until the game's public debut to train up a new AI Adversary and recreate a third of the massive world. Jaxom Cain is a bard and accomplished illusionist and yet he is as green as they come. While traveling in the Orc Borderlands he is recruited by a group of adventurers on a quest for Jaribae's Beard and the Chests of Lore. He blunders through the first few orc encounters but learns fast. He's never known any world but this one, and yet the paladin, hunter, rogue and druid he adventures with speak of strange things that hint at another reality. The paladin Loki befriends Jaxom and recruits him for his arena team. Little do they know that one day they will become great rivals for control of the Illusion Game.
