I don't know if any of you have seen this before, but i just received it in an email and thought I would share.

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 have read of something about color asociation (like 2 colors one next to other makes you see another). I dont remember where but now i understand what they meant.

Y'know, I always run into these sorts of psychological things, but I never, ever get bored of them. My brain is so easily fooled . . .

yea, the brain actually has cones that sense colors, and each cone is activated based on multiple colors... like pink and green for one cone like they did here... pretty much every cone has an opposite color, and when u stare at a color for too long you burn out that color in the cone, but since that cone is still firing it will start sending off signals of the other complimentary color... at least that's the theory right now lol

havent taken a psych class in a few years so my details are sketchy =P

pretty cool illusion... it took a long period of time staring at the black crosshair before the dots began to fade.. just about got a headache by then lol.

When I try making the other dots go away, moving my head further away from the screen reveals a ring of green dots and within it the original ring of pink dots!
