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.

That's trippy.... my eyes watered when the pink disappeared, too. Weird how the brain and eyes work.

I always love this thing...I've seen it before and looked again now because I love it so much. Thanks for the post!

Did you know that for the movie A Nightmare On Elm Street, director Wes Craven choose the colors red and green for Freddy Krueger's sweater because he read that those two colors are the hardest for the eye to process together?
