Alright, alright, this is the last optical illusion for a few days. Otherwise, Brad Schiller is gonna be breaking down my door with a baseball bat! [love you, sugar Brad!]
Ok – stare at the red dot on this woman's schnoz for about a half a minute as hard as you can. Once the 30 or so seconds are up, stare at something white. Allow the flippage to ensue. The longer you stare, the longer your vision has a chance to burn in, and the closer you stare at that red dot the better – try to get your eyes around 12" away.
Is that not just totally f*cking trippy or WHAT?! It's called an afterimage. it's what happens when we over-stimulate our cones – they essentially go on break, and the cones around them, which aren't overstimulated, kick into gear, allowing the brain to interpret the exact opposite of the image.
HAPPY THURSDAY MORNING!
