Cool Illusion

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.

I'm glad to know that at the end of the week...my brain is still functioning! Have a great fun Friday!

I love stuff like this! I was at one point a psychology major in college and one of my professors would show us lots of illusions because we were studying how the eyes + brain work. That was one of my favorite classes!

I a little dizzy after doing that. I was not able to lose all of the pink dots. They would almost disappear and then came back. So of course I stared at it HARDER. Now I dizzy and I have blurred vision. And it never did work for me!

I also love old jewelry. Got a nice stash from a great aunt who passed away. My younger sister kept the tiaras.

RYC: Thanks for the compliments on the new background. Yeah it is tough to plan family stuff when you are a world away. But with the technology today I am able to hear from him frequently (woohoo).
