  1. Nice! i love how you can so easily fool the brain into thinking it sees something that is not there. One question though. In the desert scenes where I stared at the dot between the green and red boxes then after 30 seconds looked at the dot between the desert scenes, the desert pictures did indeed seem to be saturated green and red. However, the colors were reversed, that is the green was on the left and the red on the right.
