    If you look at the delbuff one as a pair of eyes and one is open wider then the other, kinda like O_o. Then they look the same size.

    For those who are like *???*
    The black circles are pretty much the window frames
    And the opera house is the orange circle
    The window frames close up look big. Making the house smaller.
    The window frames further away look small. Making the house look bigger

    I think it might be to do with the iris in people's eyes. When the pupil is big it is nearer to the outside edge of the iris, and vice versa. As humans put great emphasis on facial expression and the features that make them, we may be subconsciously seeing the puzzles as eyes. The iris changes size depending on emotional state, and we've evolved to pick up on these small details. Adults simply have more experience than children with this interpretation.

    In the Ebbinghaus illusion, when asked which circle _looks_ larger, the correct answer would be "the one on the right". However, if asked which one _is_ larger, the correct answer is then "they are both the same size".

    It is the opposite because as you approach the window your peripheral vision narrows making the object the theatre appear larger not smaller, and as you back away the theatre becomes smaller because our peripheral vision widens bring more into our visual center of the pupil.

    ive seen this illusion, but it works better if you were actually there in his room. focus on the window and youll notice that the opera house grows much more dramatically.

    Would driving age be a possible "learned" change? The ability to distinguish size (distance) becomes much more important when you are in the driver seat.

    The same thing happens if you look thru a empty paper roll. And look at an object then look at it outside of the paper roll. The size seems to be diffrent.

    I think this happens because our brain is constantly trying to pick up details and when you were moving way from the window you brain was catching more details of the opera house than the surrounding and hence it looked larger, but when you were nearer to the window the brain was trying to capture details of the surroundings as well and that is why it appeared relatively smaller. Of course by this logic it only applies to the objects which share the same distance from you. Again by the same logic, much farther objects should appear more big than opera house. I also think that the size of the object should be in some proportion to the viewing distance.

    This is like Rangitoto Island in New Zealand. It looks huge when you drive through the suburbs, but smaller when you look at it from the beach.
