The pillars are identical in size.
Our intuition about perspective influences what we see.

The shade of the center dot is the same in all the squares; the shade of the background influences how we perceive it. All squares are uniformly shaded, but each square seems lighter on its left edge than on its right edge.

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words…well I was speechless as I watched the rotating wheels go round and round! I liked the triangles too, once I got off the merry-go-round .
Good stuff.
