    This is the thread to post optical illusions.!
    Here is one!

    Look at the above picture. You should see what apears to be a bunch of blinking dots. But if you look closely, you'll notice that if you focus on one dot it won't blink. Try covering up everything except for one dot, and you'll see that it's just a plain white dot PPLZ!
    Comment on someone elses illusions and POST YAH OWN!

    Close your left eye and fixate your right eye on the cross in the first diagram. If your eye is about 12 inches (30 cm) away from the monitor, you should notice that the round dot disappears. This distance may vary according to the screen resolution you have set.

    You may be surprised to see that the dot is replaced, not by a black region, but rather blank white space. The brain simply "fills in" the most probable stimulus (in this case, a uniform white area) where there is none.

    I did this one before but it is my favourite.

    Hold you forefingers no more than 1cm apart, focus on the background.
