Dude, do these circles look like they rotate, or is it just an animated GIF?

Anyway, Illusions are always pretty cool, I like them .

That looks like something you'd see on drugs. Pretty though.

That's so cool. I didn't see them all but I saw a lot. Just your mind playing tricks on you.

If you put your hand over parts of it you can disrupt the illusion.

Screwing up your eyes stops most of them
(your eyes move less when you do that, and its the rappid eye movement that normaly cause's these illusions)

Wacko: I could only see it when using my hands to cover a few, and darkflame:
If you concentrate you can stop the movement, just realize that they don't move, and somehow I stopped em.

kinda weird.

I covered all the squares with my hands except A and B. Still I don't see it.

Are you sure they're the same colour? Could be a lie...

Probably the light-dark checkers pattern, the colours being 'assumed' by your brain.
The different colours of the letters strongen the effect.

You can clearly see it if you focus on a point just in between the two fields, and then unfocus your eyes (like, blurred vision).

*Remembers Skull Island from CMI*

Lost Welshman : "Behold Skull Island!"

Guybrush : "It kinda looks like a duck."

Lost Welshman : "What about if you squint your eyes and turn your head round?"

Guybrush : "No, if you do that it looks like a bunny."

I can find 8
I don't have the soluctions


-----------
Look at the chart above and say the COLOR of the word,
not the word itself.

Why is it so difficult? Because the right half of your brain
is trying to say the color, while the left side of your brain
is trying to say the word.
