cool illusion I must say, but I have noticed a strange thing about it.

The first time I focused on the + sign, it took me more or less 10 seconds before the dots became green. Also the dots dissappeared all one by one until only one remained.

Now my remark is that the second time I focused on the + sign, I saw green dots after a second or two, and they immediatly disappeared!

Do you have any idea why this happens? Does the mind somehow reminded what happened last time and reconstructs it much faster (pattern recognition or something)?

thanks ciao

you may answer on my email, if you have the time for it... ;)
