What COLOR can YOU see? + BLACK + WHITE SPINNING + Benham’s top + FIXED v DYNAMIC

What color can YOU see?

X

Stare at the spinning black and white wheel below long enough

and you may see a color appear out of nowhere.

The wheel is called Benham’s top

and it creates an illusion of color

when black and white patterns rapidly change.

But incredibly, different people see different colors

– and some may not see anything at all.

Many people say they see green,

others see yellow and a few see red,

but exactly why this is the case has baffled scientists for decades.

The higher the speed, the more obvious the color effect

and reversing the wheel can also change the shade.

One theory about why people see different colours is that the receptors

in the human eye respond at different rates to red, green, and blue.

The retina of the eye is composed

of two types of receptors sensitive to light: cones and rods.

Cones are important for colour vision and for seeing in bright light.

There are three types of cones,

each of which is most sensitive to a particular wavelength of light.

‘It is possible that the colours seen in spinning Benham disks

are the result of changes

that occur in the retina and other parts of the visual system,’

according to Washington University.

‘For example, the spinning disks

may activate neighboring areas of the retina differently.

In other words, the black and white areas of the disk

stimulate different parts of the retina.’

This response may cause a type of changes within the nervous system

that creates colours, scientists believe.

Another theory is that different cones

stay activated for different amounts of time.

This means, when the wheel is spun,

the white areas activate all three types of cones,

and then the black deactivates them.

The sequence may cause an imbalance

because the different types of cones

take different times to respond,

resulting in the brain

producing

different

colors.

I LOVE that spinning the opposites of NO color, WHITE,
and ALL color, BLACK
creates color.

The ONLY thing that is CONSTANT is CHANGE.

Duality cancels itself out when in movement.
Spinning fixed, static positions into dynamic, vital motion creates new optics, experiences.
What occurs to perception;
horizon lines of understanding;
your beliefs;
your understanding of the world;
your understanding of others;
your understanding of space;
your understanding of truth;
your understanding of intimacy;
your understanding of time;
your understanding of you?
