Optical Illusion: Find the Alphabet Number

Optical illusions' capacity to fool and challenge reality has long interested humans. 

Recent web illusions involve identifying the number 2 among a mix of alphabet characters.

Simply find 2 in five seconds.As many have found, the endeavor is harder than it seems.

 It takes keen observation to spot the concealed number since the letters form a visual puzzle.

If validated, the $1.13 billion Mega Millions prize would rank fifth in game history. 

So why is 2 so hard to find in the sea of letters? Visual processing and pattern interpretation by our brains are the answer.

When faced with a complicated image like this, our brains instantly strive to locate recognizable structures and symbols. 

Placing and orienting letters helps hide the number 2. Rotating, flipping, or nestling it among similar-looking characters blends it in.
