No it'* not. The picture has no perspective, so your brain creates it. Brains don't like 2d moving objects, especially spinning ones, so it makes stuff up.

When what you see as her front becomes what you see as her back, the left leg becomes the right leg.

If I stare at it, and don't want it to change, it won't. I did it for several minutes just to see.

I'm bored.

the reason why it changes its a optical illusion

i just took apart the gif...

The first image is black.. The rest or White with gray and black shadows... thats whats doing it...

It has nothing to do with it just being 2D, its like one of those eye tricks.

ahh and also the images switches back and forth...

Imagine identical twins behind white sheets and backlit. One spinning on her left foot, the other on her right spinning the opposite direction. What would you see?
