Two of the dots vanish easily. But no matter what I do, I can always see one last dot.

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.

fake, this gif makes the dots vanish, cover the blinking dot and they will periodically still pop out of existence

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.

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

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.""

**mastercolossus rolled a random image posted in comment #1 at -_- o_o o_0 O_O ** my cones are too reactive for the dots to completely disappear.

I'm literally studying this **** right now, but I don't really know how to explain it

This explains some near crashes I've had!

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

I don't get it. I can see all three non-blinking dots clearly.

**** i know it means something
