Interesting Phenomenon

If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot,
you will only see one color, pink.

However, 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, all the pink dots will slowly disappear,
and you will only see a 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.

You'd be surprised what they post on that forum. They are a fun loving group, just like we are. I tried to post several of the funny posts, but couldn't because of the rules here. This one blew my mind.

I'm not sure what I'm doing here but no matter how I look at the picture I see a single green dot that moves pretty quickly around the pink dots. Anyone else see that?
I am legally blind in one eye so that could be the reason. Not sure though. But it IS pretty cool!
Thanks, Wasabi!

You are doing it right. In the begining, the green dot goes around the pink. Keep looking at the black cross because the pink dots will go away and you will see just a green dot going round and round, no pink ones..

Okay, now I see the green - cool!

But, now I'm seeing little bears in green grass skirts in place of the green dots. Hey, this is Fun !!!!!!
Seriously, though, thanks - I just needed to wait a few seconds longer to get the effect.
And you got this off a Chihuahua (sp?) site?? Cool!
