I haven't been reading here for a while so a little late on this reply.

The one with the dots in a circle was static for me in powerpoint. It is
supposed to be animated for the effect to work well. I've attached an
animated gif (in a.b.s.e); I made it when I first saw this so I could
email the file. It only takes a few seconds for the full effect for me.

If Jim's post was interesting, you should check out this web site:

Optical Illusions & Visual Phenomena
http://www.michaelbach.de/ot/index.html

You can definately spend a LOT of time browsing there. I especially
liked this one:
http://www.michaelbach.de/ot/mot_rotsnake/index.html

which is essentially the same as one in the powerpoint file.

Neat! Thanks.

The father of my daughter-in-law sent that to me. Isn't that a neat
set of optical illusions?

Yes! It took a relatively long time for the
green dot to appear (maybe 1.5 - 2 seconds),
but once it appeared, it was hard to get it
back to purple. I'd turn away, look at something
else for a while, then turn back, and the green
dot would appear in two or three "bounces".
And the picture of moved around on my wall.
Blanked the name, as I don't want to possibly
spoil it for someone. The_Human_Brain.PPS
is definitely a keeper!

I had to run my finger around the spiral/circle one to be sure ;-)


I got a bit of a turn with the one with the purple dots and the green
one going around the circle - I see the green dot make a couple of rounds,
then Br-r-r-r-r-r-r-t! one by one, the purple ones disappear, in order,
like on "beat the clock", and then it's just the green dot going around on
the grey background. Spooky!

And the last one, that resolves to a face, I'd like to etch a stainless
steel mask of some kind, or machine a heating element to shape, and toast
it into a tortilla, then sell it on Ebay. ;-)

Oh, by the way - do you need powerpoint (which I happen to have a bootleg
copy of), or can mere mortals view the show?

Thanks!
Rich

Gosh, i am running Linux (Suse 9.2) and it came right up in open office for
me. M$ also has free PPT viewers you can download.

Ah, hA! By brain is superior to both of yours. I was able to trace the
circles by eye. Nanner, nanner! ;-)

Oh, come on Rich, stop gloating. Everyone knows that is only because
your brain has had more experience with hallucinations than the rest of
ours has.


Damn! _EVERYONE_??????? =:-O

I was trying to keep that a secret. %-}

It plays just fine on OpenOffice.org, which is available for free on linux and
'doze.

PowerPoint VIEWER is FREE. Just surf for it.

Yes, but with OpenOffice.org, I can play it, modify it, or delete it,
all for free.

Usually, the best thing to do with a ppt file is to delete it.

What's your drawing/document preparation software of choice?

I use Adobe Acrobat v4 and v5. All my CAD tools can print directly to
PDF (via the Acrobat PDFWriter).

I then use the Form and Link Tools so that you can descend into
schematic hierarchies just like you can in the CAD, plus links to the
simulations... very smooth and EVERYONE can view it with the free
Adobe Reader.

Back in DOS days I DID use PostScript along with batch files to
combine them. You can do some remarkable things with a
PostScript-capable printer.

Yes tnahks! Much better than the X-windows 'twined' background which
goes any direction when I look at it.

Heh, I just gave it a good stare, the kind of stare you apply when counting
turns on a coil. The kind of stare that you have to be very careful about
jumping to the next line and miscounting...

Interesting - I could not see a circle in that one.
There was absolutely no doubt to my eye/mind that it
was a spiral and only a spiral. Your experience makes
me wonder if it really is a circle. The parallel
lines are awesome - maybe I should use a ruler.

Ed

Try your finger ;-)
