Oh wow! It took me a few seconds, but there they are.

I had to look at the big picture to find them, but once I did I was able to see them in the little picture (though not as well).

I couldn't see them until I scrolled down past it quickly, I guess that made the vertical lines stand out more.

What's maybe interesting is that once I saw one row, I didn't immediately see the other rows.

Yeah, sometimes it's the case that when I see one, I can't see its neighbors. And other times it's not. WEIRD!

Resolution seems to have something to do with it. On my phone I have to zoom in to a circle then back out but once I look away it's rectangles again. Computer monitor on the other hand the circles are massively apparent.

I don't know why, but I find it much easier to see the circles in the bottom two rows. It gets progressively easier as you go down for me.

What's really weird is the circles were obvious for me and I wondered why slimshady was giving a hint under the spoiler tag. I showed the Mor-man and he didn't see the circles at all, but they were so profound to my vision.

I investigated it in the photoshops. If you guessed that the circles were the same horizontal lines just rotated 90° you'd be right.

My guess is the illusion has something to do with background/foreground flipping.

While investigating I discovered this, which besides screwing with your vision if you stare long enough produces an interesting gradient effect if you stare at one spot and move closer and further away.

Tell the Mor-man to concentrate on one part of the image that has vertical lines, and then follow the path formed by joining together the end of each vertical line with the nearby end of its neighbor.

If you erased all the horizontal lines in the image, you'd just be left with a bunch of vertically-striped circles.

That's insane. I don't see a gradient in the big image, but in the thumbnail I do. That's without doing any staring or moving, just at a glance that's how it looks.

Oh yeah, good point.

On my phone the thumbnail vibrates, too. On the laptop it does not. They both have the gradient.

It doesn't seem to be moving to me, though it's vaguely offputting to the eye in a manner that defies description. What do you see?

When I look around near the center, it's twitching and it never looks as round as it should be. Maybe it's an artifact of my own vision which isn't that good in one eye.

I still don't see it, what an unpleasant afterimage though! It's like a migraine that rolled over, saw the sun, said 'fuck it' and went back to sleep.

Either they're fucking with you or something's wrong with the color temperature of their monitors. A paint program confirms that it's what it looks like - blue-green ( #7ebbb4 ) against grey #939f9b.

I don't think my wife is fucking with me and we're looking at the same monitor :)

I found this picture on the facebooks and there were thousands of comments. Many people saw the mint and grey that I see, but just as many see the white and pink my wife sees.

I just wondered how the people of :ff: see it, I'll put you down as a mint/grey ;)

The funny thing is, I saw it as a muddy white and pink right up until you said otherwise then it changed to mint and grey.
With some mental effort I got the white and pink back.

Apparently they're pink and white. It's kind of the opposite of "The Dress", which was a black and blue dress under a relatively bright light that washed out the colors without enough context for many people to (automatically) mentally correct the colors. This is a pink and white shoe in low/seemingly somewhat greenish lighting conditions.

So now I'm wondering if there's any complementarity in who sees what colors... Do people who saw a white and gold dress see a pink and white shoe? Or is it the other way around?

For the record, I only ever saw the dress and blue and black, and I can't get myself to see the shoe as pink and white, although I can reason that the hand looks greenish so it makes sense that the shoe is more pinkish as well.
