Before I begin my presentation and we conduct discussion and exchange ideas, let's take a brief look at the agenda.
First, I would like to talk about the meaning of some key word what will be discussed over the next time.
Second, I will start by looking at some pictures of visual illusion and cognitive illusion. Just for reviewing the content of the video. And showing an example of visual illusion what I found.
Third, we can conduct discussion and exchange ideas. Our discussion will around the questions that I gave to you. Of course, you can also raise other questions if you want, that is good.

So, I want to ask :"what is the connection between visual illusion and Irrational behavior? How do you understand it?''
