    I normally don`t like them colour ones cos I normally think they`re lying.

    But this one was alright what with all the proof and all.

    Also, I can see dead people and they keep holding up signs saying "GIVE US A DAMN GOD".

    Am I going insane?

    Also, my dragonponies look grey instead of purple.

    “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.”

    Methinks someone is reading way too much into this. If someone told me they saw a green Jesus, and he was really blue, I`d be like, LOL, you got your colors wrong and therefore I can never believe anything you tell me? Hmmm

    OMG it totally fools my computer into thinking that it`s blue too.

    I used paint and made the picture smaller.

    It naturally works to make the picture look the way it really does. Because of the way it`s presented to us, we see it like a close-up of how they make/made comic books, with a bunch of colored dot really close together so we can see a color that isn`t in their 16-color palette.

    Makes sense to me.

    I didn`t think the spirals were one continous colour, like it kept telling me I did.
    And if I look at it really closely, I can see they`re the same colour.

    So, meh. Unimpressed.

    Alos, if you put this in paint, and subtitute all the colours for anything else, it still works.

    I`m not sure about the Jesus comment at the bottom of the article though - so because we can`t always see colours properly, life is not at all what it seems?

    I think this is the basic principle behind the ishihari colour blind test. you know the one with the numbers hidden in the dots? how our brain identifies colour by cross referencing them to ones beside it. Sucks cos I`m red green colourblind and always fail that bloody test!

    I have the same problem, I hate it when you tell people that you`re PARTLY colourblind and then they are like `What colour is my shirt, what colour is the sky, what colour is the grass?`. Very annoying, but my optician thought I was being stupid when I said I couldn`t see the triangle in the test.

    Well, it`s true: our memories aren`t like videos or photographs. It`s why eye-witness identification is so unreliable. I`ve heard of thousands of cases where a `rapist` or `murderer` were wrongfully convicted only because of eye witness testimony. And the eyewitness in all cases felt that there were 100% correct in their identification, only to be proved wrong years later by contradicting DNA evidence.

    Actually actually, there is only one "colour" (actually a chromatic hue), White, filtered through red, green and blue phosphor or liquid crystal, depending on your monitor.
