There are four colours in the image I posted.

What am I supposed to be seeing?

Should I be further away or closer?

Keep staring at the cross but try to be aware of what the faces look like in your peripheral vision. I think closer is probably best but experiment till you see something interesting. You can look straight at the faces for the next cycle or two if you want - it doesn't affect the illusion.

Default Re: Optical illusions

This all reminds me how utter shite our vision really is and how much we can thank our brains for assuming it's better.

The color bars work because our color resolution is way worse than our luminance resolution and so the colors bleed over into each other while our luminance and edge detection says there's hard lines. If you zoom in really close you can see the blue tinted green for what it is, if you zoom out a bit more the spirals become obviously different. This is part of how JPG compression works. It separates out the luminance from the color and then throws away a ton of the color since it's not really needed for proper perception of the scene.

I see weirdness and I have to look. I can't keep my eyes fixed on the centre.

Especially the eyes.
