This is a Lichtenberg figure, guys. Got nothin' to do with gravity, sorry. These are caused by building up a lot of electrical charge in an insulative medium like acrylic, then piercing the surface with a nail or other conductive object to give the charge an exit. The movement of the large amount of electricity through the acrylic (which is very difficult to move through) results in the trails you see etched into the center of the block.

You=dumb.

That's the Lichtenstein effect you daft cunt. Gravitational lensing is when gravity bends space-time it has nothing to do with this. This is when you just charge up some acrylic with a voltage and then let it escape with something like a nail which is a conductor and not an insulator like acrylic is. A whole dickload of electricity is released through the nail, and the acrylic is etched because of the resistance the electricity meets as it attempts to escape the inescapable prison that is your mom's vagina that block of acrylic.

Not gravitational lensing, but still pretty cool.
