Question by darkspacemonster: What’s the illusion called where an image flashes and contents of that image appears in every second flash?
And you don’t notice the contents that disappear/appear every flash before a certain amount of time. Not sure if it can be called an illusion.
No, it’s not subliminal messages/imagery. I’ve seen the “illusion” in a Java applet, or something like that.

I think one of the examples were like this: You see an image of an airplane for X seconds (I think it was 1 or 0.5 seconds), then the image suddenly changes to a completely black one (or white, can’t remember) for just a few milliseconds. Finally the the first image, with a plane gets visible again but it’s a bit altered. After many repetitions of these three steps you release that you’ve missed quite an obvious detail in the “illusion”. In this example the engine disappears and reappears after the black/white image (call it a flash).

I searched for all the keywords I could think of “strobing/flashing/update image/picture illusion visual perception eye trick(s) java applet” but I couldn’t find anything.

I’m hoping someone here knows what it’s called! :-)

Question by The Man On The Moon: What does it mean when you see a certain image in an optical illusion?
I need help i am doing a science fair project and I need to find out what it means when you see a duck or the rabbit in the duck/rabbit illusion or the old woman or young lady in the old women/ young lady illusion etc. Plz have sources 10 points to best answer. So what it means when you see a type of picture in the illusion like you can relate to it more, something different with your perception, etc. HELP!
In the experiment we show each age group above 40 below 20 the illusion and they tell us which image they see.

Answer by Louise
These are projective psychological tests. What you see might reflect certain stereotypes that are unconscious. If the test administrator uses words like, tired, slow, achy, you might see an old lady in the picture. These tests can reveal feelings that are not obvious.

The Image of the Black in Western Art, Volume III: From the “Age of Discovery” to the Age of Abolition, Part 1: Artists of the Renaissance and Baroque

In the 1960s, as a response to segregation in the United States, the influential art patron Dominique de Menil began a research project and photo archive called The Image of the Black in Western Art. Now, fifty years later, as the first American president of African American descent occupies his historic term in office, her mission has been re-invigorated through the collaboration of Harvard University Press and the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute to present new editions of the coveted five origina

Question by Tori: My image on deviant art has a black background?
I added a sig that has some transparent background and on deviant art it made the background black unless you click the image and enlarge it. How do I make it so you can see the picture like it should be? I have it in png format.

Best answer:

Answer by God Is In The Detail
what I do is make the background black, and the foreground white, therefore, the upload isn’t all black, yeah sure it isn’t what I want, but if I want someone to see it, then I don’t have a choice, unless there is another way I don’t know about.

Question by Nick f: What passage from a book, has conjured up a very vivid image in your mind?
It can be factual, or fictional, even newspaper stories.

What have you read that has REALLY stuck in your mind, the words conjuring forth images with vivid clarity….what has MOVED you in print.

Please post your favourite passages here, with name of book, author etc, and a description of what you felt or saw in your mind, as you read.

I will start the ball rolling.

“We live together, we act on, and react to, one another; but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves. The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena; they are crucified alone. Embraced, the lovers desperately try to fuse their insulated ecstasies into a single self-transcendence; in vain. By its very nature every embodied spirit is doomed to suffer and enjoy in solitude. Sensations, feelings, insights, fancies—all these are private and, except through symbols and at second hand, incommunicable. We can pool information about experiences, but never the experiences themselves. From family to nation, every human group is a society of island universes”

Aldous Huxley- Brave new world.

“Language is but intelligent sound, now music, music is intelligent language! It speaks to all. Our tongues were never divided. The one language, like before Babel has always been with us.”

“One Folk, One Realm, One Leader. Union with the unity of an insect swarm. Knowledgeless understanding of nonsense and diabolism. And then the newsreel camera had cut back to the serried ranks, the swastikas, the brass bands, the yelling hypnotist on the rostrum. And here once again, in the glare of his inner light, was the brown insectlike column, marching endlessly to the tunes of this rococo horror-music. Onward Nazi soldiers, onward Christian soldiers, onward Marxists and Muslims, onward every chosen People, every Crusader and Holy War-maker. Onward into misery, into all wickedness, into death!”

From Island, 1962. Aldous Huxley
Sandy, specifically, the question asks for passages in print, I can only assume that you haven’t read anything in print, as you appear to have been thwarted by a question less than 20 lines long!
Swiftcheetah, an example is what is required…at least you have read SOME kind of book recently.
Lisa, you can answer with text from books, as long as you cite the author, and give them proper credit for their work.

And you won’t bother…Oh my God….how will I live without your input?
Ty lala :-)
Chinese symbology lady.

Lovecrafts the call of Cthulu, I found absolutely spellbinding, it was like a warm clammy hand wrapped around me that I squirmed at times to escape, yet it was hypnotically womblike most of the time…a true classic.

Wiesel’s Night, I agree was truly one of the most harrowing reads of my entire life, it left me drained, and even more cynical, than I was previously (Quite some feat I assure you) It was akin to being in a horrible accident which left me mentally scarred for months, and the lasting impressions are with me to this day!.

I also read Vachel Lindsays poem “The leaden eyed on the same day, and it was the day the 2nd big ethiopian famine hit our tv screens, truly, it was one of my darkest days!
Alissa T….Yes….I am really curious, sounds like my kind of thing.
Nice link redunico…. I have never read Dune, the film put me off attempting it, but I may give it a go someday…I read Asimov a lot for my Sci-fi fix.
