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.
