Do you think you've got enough patience for an optical illusion?

The latest one could leave you scratching your head for hours or even days.

An image circulating on Reddit shows a grey background with small squares on the edge and in the middle.

When you look at first glance, it seems as though it's actually a gif.

But that's where you're wrong.

A Reddit user, under the name evilgator, posted the image which has since received a whopping 25,000 upvotes.

The caption read: "This is not a gif."

So do you think you can solve what's actually going on in this image?

Hundreds of Reddit users flooded the comments section, with one writing: "It's like a portal into another dimension. Very intense."

Another added: "Depending on which eye I use, the inside or the outside wiggles. Wtf?"

A third baffled user commented: "I don't feel good."

While a fourth said: "It looks weirder when you scroll."

This optical illusion is an example of an illusory motion which makes you think something's moving.

The effect is the result of interacting colour contrasts and shape position.

We've actually seen this kind of optical illusion before.

Previously an optical illusion with motion blindness went viral.

This mind-bending optical illusion asks you to stare at the centre for 20 seconds.

But while it looks like a standard image, once you glance at it for those seconds it will start to confuse you.

After staring at the image, the regularity of the grid pattern at the centre begins to spread into the irregular parts.
