Got a quick question: Are diet plans like Nutrisystem and nutri-system long term? Many thanks for any answer. Another question I got... Hey Guys. Check out the optical illusion here:.


You see embedded spirals, right, of green, pinkish-orange, and blue? Incredibly, the green and the blue spirals are the same color. At first I thought Richard was pulling our collective legs, being a trickster of high magnitude. So I loaded the image in Photoshop and examined the two spirals. In the two squares displayed below, the one on the left is colored using the same color from the blue spiral, and on the right using the green spiral..

Like I said, incredible! For pedantry sake, the RGB colors in both spirals are 0, 255, 150. So they are mostly green with a solid splash of blue..

The reason they look different colors is because our brain judges the color of an object by comparing it to surrounding colors. In this case, the stripes are not continuous as they appear at first glance. The orange stripes dont go through the "blue" spiral, and the magenta ones dont go through the "green" one. Heres a zoom to make this more clear:.

See? The orange stripes go through the "green" spiral but not the "blue" one. So without us even knowing it, our brains compare that spiral to the orange stripes, forcing it to think the spiral is green. The magenta stripes make the other part of the spiral look blue, even though they are exactly the same color. If you still dont believe me, concentrate on the edges of the colored spirals. Where the green hits the magenta it looks bluer to me, and where the blue hits the orange it looks greener. Amazing..

The overall pattern is a spiral shape because our brain likes to fill in missing bits to a pattern. Even though the stripes are not the same color all the way around the spiral , the overlapping spirals makes our brain think they are. The very fact that you have to examine the picture closely to figure out any of this at all shows just how easily we can be fooled..

This is why I tell people over and over again: you cannot trust what you see even with your own eyes. Your eyes are not cameras faithfully taking pictures of absolute truth of all that surrounds you. They have filters, and your brain has to interpret the jangled mess it gets fed. Colors are not what they appear, shapes are not what they appear (that zoomed image above is square, believe it or not), objects are not what they appear..

So the next time someone swears they saw Jesus, or a UFO, or a ghost, show them this picture. What you see in life is absolutely and provably not what you get...

Yes sir! although you might want to make sure and wait for another person to confirm it as I am not sure. Better yet, why don't you ask the Nutrisystem guys because they can assist you better...

If you look at the OP's post and scroll down from the top illusion to the bottom one, the squares in between turn from blue to green...

Comment #2

Actually this is local contrast well known to artist and graphic designers. One of the many reasons you must choose color carefully..

Here's another one, it's a little more famous illusion.

Which is darker square A or square B?.

Feel free to check it in Photoshop..

But they're the same...

Comment #3

I downloaded that Adelson-Checkerboard illusion from the creator's website, and used the eyedropper in Paintshop to get the color from square A and B. They are exactly the same..

On Mule's "male optical illusion" I still can't see the boat...

I need to go to the eye doctor. After close to five hours, I still don't see the boat. I see the black sails and the jib line, but no boat!..
