James V Stone: Optical Illusions

The Lilac Chaser

This is copied from a web site of illusions, just for demonstration purposes.

If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, the dots will remain only one color, pink. However if you stare at the black '+'  in the center, the moving dot turns to green. Now, continue to concentrate on the black '+' in the center of the picture. After a short period, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will only see only a single green dot rotating.  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 .
