A cool Illusion of our Mind !

11 April, 2006 (20:10) | Technical

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.

Srajan :

The reason behind this is to tell that how our mind works and sometime what you see from your naked eyes is also not true

Its just like making fool for less than 1 second. Because its just changing color of previous dot to green and when it jumps to next it is again set to Pink. It nothing amazing.

we see what we see – no illusion in that. real life isn’t a rotating pink dot. that should be enough to realize this is nothing more than ones illusive thoughts.

I enjoyed the illusion with coloured spots. I would like to contact the authors: M. Bach and J. L. Hinton. Could you kindly give me their e-mail address. Thanking you.

Would you allow me to use this in a workshop to show how we don’t see what we think we see… if so, could you let me know how I could view the graphic in a non-internet file (where I deliver the workshop won’t have internet)
Many thanks,

You could…. I will email you the files so that you can save it on your local machine and take it to your workshop.
