So, no [formerly "not" thanks again] recent posts here. Still, as you know, I check blogdex, trendalicious, and oishi each morning to see what people are buzzing about. Today Oishi showed a very interesting optical illusion that I'd like to pass along. I recommend to take a few moments to check this out; it's neat. It's just a single illusion, but one of the best I've seen. Click on the link below to view it. I give the text that accompanies the illusion to give you an idea what's happening.
If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, you will only see one color, pink. If you stare at the black + in the center, the moving dot turns to green. Now, concentrate on the black + in the center of the picture. After a short period of time, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will only see a green dot rotating if you're lucky! It's amazing how our brain works. There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don't disappear. This should be proof enough, we don't always see what we think we see.
