Not everyone sees the same color when they stare at this spinning disk.
The gif is called, “Benham’s disk" "is named after the English toymaker Charles Benham, who in 1895 sold a top painted with the pattern shown. When the disk is spun, arcs of pale color, called Fechner colors or pattern-induced flicker colors (PIFCs), are visible at different places on the disk. Not everyone sees the same colors."
"The phenomenon originates from neural activity in the retina and spatial interactions in the primary visual cortex, which plays a role in encoding low-level image features, such as edges and spatiotemporal frequency components."
Fascinating how our brains work, I see a brown tan, what do you see? :D
i see lavender!
I see a very light green or yellow
maybe yellow. idk
I don’t see any colours :(
Instantly saw a murky yellow.
I see a mustardy yellow and brown… sent the gif to my friend who’s tripping on acid as a fun experiment.
reply i got was:
"Okay look. A. This all still feels exactly like it’s happened before. B. You almost have me a heart attack with the movie thing. C. I’ll let you know in a bit.
Look I’m so fucking baked and tripping that the words I’m typing look like little biker dudes fighting each other.
And everything is on fire. And this is still repeating.”
so… yeah, maybe it looks different on LSD but at the moment I can not confirm that.
