Default Re: Optical illusions

I spent. all. goldanged. day. yesterday looking at that monster dress, not being able to see the black and blue despite adjusting the brightness and the ambient light and looking at it on different devices. I saw white and gold, unquestionably, with a slight 'twilight' tinge.

I read and mostly understood the explanations, looked at the original dress (which is apparently black and blue) and the transformation videos, blocked off different areas of the picture, and still couldn't see the black at all. The blue, a little bit, but it was unconvincing. The black was just no way.

Then I opened up my tablet to complain about it, probably to Matlock, and blammo, it was black and blue, unquestioningly, and I couldn't fathom how I ever saw it as anything else.

It has remained white and gold on my computer, but it's starting to look like it's permanently blue and black on my tablet now. Computer-me thinks tablet-me is crazy and wrong, and vice versa.

This is it, isn't it? This is how I die. I get in a vicious fistfight with myself over a picture of an ugly dress.
