    Here's an article looking at the issue that's worth a read... (ipauland, I believe you)

    Yes, I've seen it. It doesn't explain our situation.

    People seem to be keen to explain this in a particular way, none of which seems to fit our particular circumstance, especially the colour correction or viewing separate images.

    It's a fun effect, though, no matter how you look at it.

    I hate to break it to you guys but I know for a fact that there were different images circulated
    There are indeed three images circulating. However it doesn't distract or explain how showing just a single image (not 3) to numerous people leads to two very different replies. That's not marketing nor mass hysteria

    oh yes it is, bearing in mind that the term can be used in various different ways; all trending is a form of mass hysteria in one sense

    the way two people see the same picture [given the same viewing conditions] very differently is a known phenomena placed generally on the 'optical illusion' end of the spectrum because that is sort of what it is, except that instead of 'confusing' everyone it only confuses some who's perceptions work in a certain way/ways

    ..like the whole of the population. We all perceive things in 'certain ways'.

    This suggestion that some of the population are confused because they don't fit a given explanation is bordering offensive.

    oh for crying out loud Paul - lighten up - I put 'confused' in inverted commas - the brain gets 'confused' by optical illusions, and this is in that sort of category; it has nothing to do with being confused in the sense of mental capacity

    the colours are scientifically assessable - people who are not colour-blind 'should' see them a certain way under given conditions; if they don't and it is not a general thing that happens to them all the time but only for a specific picture, then signals are getting misinterpreted somewhere along the way however you wish to define that

    Saw this on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AskAQwOBvhc

    Whether this explains it all, I'm not sure.
