thanks pedro, I think my computer is way out of date, some I get, some I don't and the ones I do manage to get play havoc with my eyesight anyway !!! - I'll keep on trying

Can you see the cube in a cube, or is there any cube?

fascinating JJ - I see the cube within the cube when it pauses for a few seconds then it becomes a totally different shape. On the other hand, my partner saw pedro's snakes moving and he was sat across the room. Maybe I blame my computer too much because my eyesight is the main problem Whistle thank you both T x

This is less an optical illusion,
more a Medical Examination
Look at the picture below.





If you see fuzzy black spots
in the intersections of the white grid
you might get ill and will one day, alas, perhaps die
