So the picture below supposedly came from an old book: The Intelligent Eye, written by Gregory R. Unless you already saw this flick before, in all likelihood it won’t make much sense. It seems as if we are only seeing hundreds of black patches on a white background. But once you spot the illusion, you can’t go back. This example demonstrates the amazing capability of our visual system to organize visual input into interpretable shape. If you still can’t see it, the only hint I can give you, is to check these two articles about Sheldrake first. I’m not sure if this one was already posted sometime in the past, but if it was – my mistake!
After checking the results of our previous poll, I’m happy to learn that most of you do like my personal, offtopic touch. However, 30% of you dislike my unrelated comments, and since this number is too high to ignore, I’m proposing the following… From now on, I’ll give my best to divide the article in two paragraphs. First one referring to the illusion and it’s background story, while the other one (much like what I’m writing today) will contain unrelated babbling. Will this make both sides equally happy?
