    Pink Dots - this is crazy! Something to drive you insane....


    If your brain works normally this is neat.
    It is another example of an amazing illusion!!! The last sentence is so true.

    If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating grey/green dot, the other dots will remain only one color, pink.

    However if you stare intently at the black '+' in the center, after a short period, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will see only the single grey/green dot rotating.

    It's amazing how our brain works. There really is no grey/green dot, and the pink ones actually don't disappear. This should be proof enough, we don't always see what we think we see .
    Send this to all of your friends and amaze them.

    No .. what is happening is that the cells in your eyes tire of seeing the same thing for a long time.. so they begin to "switch off"... what you are actually seeing is pink dots, with one pink dot taken out.. there is no green dot.. however... necause your eyes got tired of registering "pink" the neurons in your brain and eyes stop telling your brain the signal "pink".. but the colour-code neurons in your brain that are left when you knock out pink (namely, green) are now so powerful they create the illusion of green where there is none .....(the effect of drowning out signals to your brain is the same that happens with the clothes on your body.. you feel them at first when you put them on, and then your brain just stops registering them)

    NOw when you stare at the centre... as the gray dot (or open space) goes around in circles covering the pink.. your eyes or brain create an "imprint" of that flash of grey in your brain that outlasts the actual flash... giving you the impression of constant greyness after a while (....thats comparable to what happens when you watch television.. You are actually seeing flashes of still pictures, but your brain puts flashes together to create the illusion of smooth movement....)

    Focus very well and without moving your eyes at all.. its hard to do.. but if you manage, all the pink disappears

    i guess its the shadow that does this



    here's the real thing : "[via Brainist] The Hermann Grid illusion depends on high contrast black and white areas to fool the eyes into perceiving intermediate grey areas. Imagine the Hermann Grid as a map of NYC streets; most intersections appear to be grey, but when you look closely at any individual intersection, you will see that it is white. The streets, on the other hand, appear white no matter where you look."

    & this too

    Interesting, but when you watch TV, you never see the still pictures, they're always moving, and with this image, at first, you see the pink dots and after a while you don't, so I think it's a little bit different, isn't it?
