    Illusion ...

    OKAY YOU SMART PEOPLE OUT THERE, FIGURE THIS ONE OUT . .

    The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.
    We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift.
    A. Einstein

    This has to be the best illusion ever created.

    If you look at the images below from your seat in front of the computer, Mr. Angry is on the left, and Ms. Calm is on the right.

    Get up from your seat, and move back 12 feet, and PRESTO!! they switch places!!


    (You have to go back at least 12 or more feet for it to work)


    It is said this illusion was created by Phillippe G.Schyns and Aude Oliva of the University of Glasgow


    Does this prove that we sometimes may not be seeing whats actually there ?

    Nice one ST

    Alfie, you online :?

    That is really weird!!

    You can amke the swap from any distance in front of your screen as long as you can change your focal length.

    It's all about focus...

    The human brain has special face processing circuitry that picks up on cues such as eye and nose position to identify faces. When you move back 12 feet you alter the amount of the image you can focus on clearly and there are other visual cues built into the image which appear clearer from that distance which results in the change of perception of emotional expression. If you look closely you can see the parts of the image that lead to the transformation at a distance.

    http://bp0.blogger.com/_cxmptAPYR-s/Rg3NeT3wNRI/AAAAAAAAAkI/gZbNecePGmk/s400/Einstein+Monroe.jpg[FONT=arial] Albert Einstein was a big fan of Marylin Monroe, a very famous American actress and idol. Their connection was probably stronger than we assumed. I have an evidence photo to show you! They used Einstein's genius combined with Monroe's beauty to create a unique optical illusion. They couldn't be seen together in one place (probably because of Albert's wife, Elsa), but still eagerly wanted a photo of themselves. So Albert used 0.1% of his brain capacity, and thought of a solution. He created a hybrid image of himself and Marylin, where you can see both of them in it, but only one at the time. As you see, if you position yourself close to the screen you will see Einstein's happy face. Now move away few meters, and you'll see Marylin! Surprise, yes Albert vanished, but only for so long until you come near the photo again. I hope you are aware that the story I wrote few lines above, is just fiction, and only crazy idea I got in my head. However, the illusion is 100% real. By the way, I just watched Leonida's 300 in theater with my gf. You really should go and see it, it was amazing![/FONT]

    [FONT=arial]This ironic billboard for "Bush Reelected" edition of Veja Magazine won number of prizes arround the world. It isn't noticable at the first sight, but if you know how to read "between the lines", you will notice there's a Davnici-Code-style of encrypted letters between the first noticed "Victory" letters. Can you decode it and read what they say? [/FONT]

    Defeat....Yay me!

    [FONT=arial]Jeff Absher sent this fabulous shadow illusion accompanied by message: "I don't know who or where created it, but I think this is really neat, I present you the "block shadow girl". It took just a second for me to see the illusion, but never the less the effect is strong........! [/FONT]
