Motion induced blindness. Stare at the blinking dot in the middle of the image and the others will disappear. Blink and they will come back again..

when i was in i think grade 7, i noticed that if you stare at a single spot on a big field of grass, all the grass appears to look the same, just repeating the same small patch throughout the field.

The brain tends to do that, it's called symmetrical texture repetition. Most noticeable when taking psychedelic drugs, but what most don't realize is that the brain uses it all them time, we just don't usually notice.

Neato. This is the exact same viewing method for those magic eye pictures

Cross your eyes exactly like you would to solve the "Spot the difference" puzzles.

I am... I just can never figure out what they are, I'm just gonna guess it's a dick or something

Actually, after looking a bit more since my previous comment: it's a side-view of a naked woman laying on her back.
User avatar #43 to #41 - renegadesparks **User deleted account** (02/20/2014) [-]
I still can't see it. I'm doing what I'm supposed to. but it just isn't working for me
User avatar #44 to #43 - Nihatclodra (02/20/2014) [-]
Are you sure you're crossing your eyes until you see something overlap, then squinting your eyes while keeping them crossed in that position until your eyes focus? It should feel like you're focusing your eyes at something in the distance immediately after looking at something close up.

Then are you just hovering the mouse over the picture to enlarge it, or actually clicking it... because clicking it enlarges it more, and these puzzles are easier the larger they are.
User avatar #47 to #46 - renegadesparks **User deleted account** (02/20/2014) [-]
I tied both actually, I wonder if I'm going TOO crosseyed, in the other thing there were two pictures and a distinct "this is as much as they need to overlap" point, that is a singular picture and if I overlap it with itself, I just go back to normal vision
User avatar #48 to #47 - Nihatclodra (02/20/2014) [-]
cross your eyes until there is about an inch of picture half-phased on both ends.
User avatar #49 to #48 - renegadesparks **User deleted account** (02/20/2014) [-]
I am about gnashing my teeth at how dumb I feel being completely unable to see it, I'm doing that EXACTLY, but my brain just won't allow the overlap to focus
User avatar #50 to #49 - Nihatclodra (02/20/2014) [-]
Maybe try looking past the picture, like you were looking at something in the distance through a window?
User avatar #52 to #50 - renegadesparks **User deleted account** (02/20/2014) [-]
my eyes won't stop ******* moving, I try to hold them steady and focus on the point, but NOOOO they have to move in and out and won't hold damn still, I don't even care about the picture anymore, I just want to see it so I can say to myself I finally saw something with one of those, and maybe my brain isn't just retarded mound of jello in my annoyingly oversized head
User avatar #53 to #52 - Nihatclodra (02/20/2014) [-]
you got them to stay still for the Spot the Differences didn't you? try those again, then try to recreate those same motions. Then maybe your eyes won't move as much (My eyes actually were moving like crazy like that when I was trying the Spot the Difference things at first).
User avatar #54 to #53 - renegadesparks **User deleted account** (02/20/2014) [-]
I have actually gotten annoyed enough I can't do the spot the difference ones anymore, I just give up, **** it, I'm overstressing myself at almost 3 am because I can't use a hidden picture thing
User avatar #55 to #54 - Nihatclodra (02/20/2014) [-]
maybe try again tomorrow when you're calmer, and you'll get it. Seems to work that way when you're stuck in Video games, so why not here?
User avatar #57 to #55 - renegadesparks **User deleted account** (02/20/2014) [-]
you know what it is, and this will akways **** with me, I have a lazy eye, it ALWAYS is doing its own thing when I go cross eyed, it also moves at a different pace than my other eye, like it's got a tiny bit of lag in the communication, that's probably the cause of my issues
User avatar #60 to #57 - Nihatclodra (02/20/2014) [-]
probably... it might be awkward, but you could try moving your lazy eye 1st, then your normal eye.
User avatar #56 to #55 - renegadesparks **User deleted account** (02/20/2014) [-]
eh, it's wierd, the angrier I get in videogames, the more focused I get and the more determined I am, and honestly I do better, up to a point, everyone has that breaking point where they just go frothy and can't focus on anything besides their own rage, but I guess that's not entirely relevant in this situation.. is it?
User avatar #36 to #26 - Nihatclodra (02/20/2014) [-]
I can see it, but I can't tell what it is...
User avatar #61 to #36 - kingofants (02/20/2014) [-]
It's a woman sort of lying down bending backwards a bit. Pretty sexual.

User avatar #3 to #2 - alecbaldwinning (02/19/2014) [-]
Image is a little small, try getting a bit closer. But you also really have to concentrate on the blinking dot. The slightest change in your focus will cause the yellow dots to reappear.
User avatar #4 to #3 - aximil (02/19/2014) [-]
Two of the dots vanish easily. But no matter what I do, I can always see one last dot.
#6 to #4 - semidemon ONLINE (02/20/2014) [-]
same, and the one ************ that doesnt want to leave is the bottom one

The 'trick' to this is due to ""Vision span or perceptual span is the angular span (vertically and horizontally), within which the human eye has sharp enough vision to read text. The visual field of the human eye spans approximately 120 degrees of arc. However, most of that arc is peripheral vision. The human eye has much greater resolution in the macula, where there is a higher density of cone cells. The field of view that is observed with sufficient resolution to read text typically spans about 6 degrees of arc, which is wide enough to allow a clear view of about five words in a row when printed text at ordinary size is held about 50 centimeters from the eyes. The brain creates the illusion of having a greater visual span by automatically and unconsciously moving the center of vision into any area of interest in the field of view.""

User avatar #33 - euphoricdorian (02/20/2014) [-]
I say this alot on here...but i mean...... Maybe it's just because I've been drinking, but when i stare at it all the dots don't vanish at once. They randomly vanish and then show back up again. Im starting to think illusions like this dont work on inebriated people.

User avatar #34 to #33 - dahlirious (02/20/2014) [-]
Same thing happened to me, first it was just the top one and then it came back and the other two vanished. It was never all at once. However, I did just finish drinking a **** ton of wine so you might have a point

If you blur your vision, they'll stay the same.
