The above picture makes us think if the two soldiers are going up or going down...what do you think? There's so many things in life that we need to have a closer look...to have a second look... and to have a long hard look... There's so many things i this world that more than meets the eyes...for sometimes we just see something in a wink of an eye...an optical illusion...the tip of the iceberg... Sometimes the hands of a magician is even faster than the human eyes...

Life is full of things that fool us more often than not. Taking a closer look does help sometimes.

Optical illusions are often cool, and some can reveal something about our personality. Yes, some are used by magicians during their shows, too. I see no ropes, so I guess the two soldiers are going down, making some sort of bad gesture at the helicopter because they didn't want to fall, perhaps?

@mandala100 Yes, exactly. Hope they know how to swim then. And I also hope the water is warm. In fact they look like praying/hoping as well.

Because they are over water, hopefully, they are being rescued and not dropped off!

I think they are going down because their clothes are dry

i recall an optical illusion so different from what you posted here. it is the cup/chalice and it could also mean 2 persons in nose to nose.
