I know the title of this group is "Seeing is believing"--but I'm curious about other sensory illusions--ones that deceive the other senses. Can anyone cite examples of illusions that fool the senses of hearing, tasting, touching, smelling?

What is the technical name of the illusion when you cross your forefinger and middle finger and roll a marble between them so that you feel two marbles?

Please let me know if there is some other forum on the Café that I should post thIs questIon on.

Well, in "Emotion Box" the audience *believes* that a tactile illusion took place, but in fact this is not the case.

"Baffling Blocks" is a nice example.

Any surround sound system can create an illusion of motion.

In conjuring, one can use tactile conditioning to convince a volunteer that they hold a different number of objects than true.
A "vanish to empty" is most profound where a volunteer believes they hold a coin when they do not.

Crossing your fingers and rubbing them up and down a pencil makes it feel like there are tow pencils. It's mystifying!
