Gah! I can't make it turn counter-clockwise. I'm too right-minded. Ah well, maybe that's just my virtue.

Those that cannot see counter clockwise, point your eyes to the top right of your monitor screen and use your peripheral vision to watch the spinning chick.
Works for me.

Otherwise, looking directly at her, all I can see is clockwise.
Nothing but clockwise.
Clockwise forever.

tock.


EDIT: Holy crap, I'm stuck seeing counter clockwise.
Someone get the holy water.

[edit] I just know this is going to end up in someone's avatar.

Hell, we should get everyone to do it.
Then everyone like me won't be able to identify anyone else 'cause we go by avatars over screen names.
Not as quickly anyway.
/irrelevant


Anyway, I have a question -- is it just me, or do I see nipples?
Boy, this illusion has everything!

I first see it go clockwise but then some where in the middle i swear it goes counter clockwise. I when I try to switch it i can't. I think maybe it really switches after awhile just to make you go insane.

I think the left-brain/right-brain explanation is bull too.
The whole left vs right thing is an outmoded idea anyway, modern neurology uncovers little that supports it to the extent people claim it exists.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Also this "illusion" has been known about for years. Something spinning at a high enough rate can be seen to go backwards. Wheels on a car for instance.
Please look at the Miala and their Wiki on the page.

At first I saw it clockwise, then I covered the shadow and after a while it was counter clockwise. Then clockwise again.

When I first saw it, it was counter clock-wise. Then it changed to clock-wise and not I can't see it the other way.

You need 2 people watching the same image at the same time if your both seeing changes at the same time its fake if the person sitting next to you is seeing a different direction to you then it is real.

Edit I can now force the direction it appears to go in to change.
