Staring at the middle dot I see one white dot, 8 grey dots and 26 black dots...

Did I pass, driving instructor? http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

P/S: Someone know how I can get rid of all those dots on my view, by now? http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif

And Jorden, those artifacts that you see should be probably gone by now. It is not so hard on the eyes (Well not as much as the banned pokemon episode which supposedly cause epileptic seizures; I d/led the clip and watched it repeatedly and nothing. Bah!).

Stupid eyes! Stupid Brain! What does it think it's doing! Look at the dams dots you idioting eye balls! And oi! you! brain! I COMMAND you to tell me what the eyes tell you! No no no - not that! you're wrong! Go look again!

Right, come 'ere mr Brain - sort it out - how can the dots be moving or changing from black to white?! It's a non-animated picture!

AARRGHHH I GIVE UP! I am now suing you impact for I have collapsed in a heap of flesh and bones on the floor, quivering with my eyeballs gouged out.... http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

the spots in a area of your vision are black because the place where the light of those dots project onto the back of your eyes (whatever that is called in English), there are no cells that can detect light, because right at that spot, the nerves that carry the signals from your eyes, leave the eye and go to the brain.

I hope this is a bit understandable, otherwise check a medical ecyclopedia.

Does the fact that there are no black dots encoded into the image but simply optical effects generated by your eyes mean the black dots don't exist? Do they reside in the eye or on the screen? http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Hmm, if this pattern were in a forest, how many black dots would there be? http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Actually, Himself is right. There are no black dots in this image - it's all just an illusion.

For the dot one you just need to make a pinhole in a piece of paper or similar effect with your hand.

No, I just have an uncanny ability to focus on small areas... I traced the lines across, and found them to be straight.

Also, I'm working on a thesis about how the lines in Donkey Kong are also straight.... NAH!
