Please explain the riddle to non-english people...

And yes our brain works miracles in filling in gaps or jumping to conclussions. One test showed that if a monitor dispalys a ball alternating at left or right side, at certain speed, we tend to see 3 ball location; one in the middle that is never shown. The test was stunning for the fact that we actually filled in this middle ball before even the ball was shown at right screen location.

Teasing audience to mential fill in gaps and not to spell everything out is quite a common rule in visual arts.

For those who want to tease their brain; Next url is nice to test your color intensity perception (sniff, I lost my color innocence after seeing it); http://zephyrfalcon.org/weblog/arch_...8_30.html#e330

Reading entire phrases can also play tricks on our minds:

What words appear in the triangle below?

PARIS, IN, THE, THE, SPRING.
I see the double "THE"'s.
Maybe that's because I'm not a native english speaker?

This is my theory as to how companies like Mustek stay in the camera biz. LOL

Very good, kex! It will be interesting to see if anyone actually confesses that all they saw was "PARIS IN THE SPRING."

Strange thing was I noticed the typo in "Paris in the the spring" immediatly. After that I knew what typo I should look for in the typed riddle (thanks).

I assume if you are a into graphics, the Paris one is more easy to spot a repeated pattern. With typed text it is different, text is just text.

Hopefully Kalypso uses his camera to shoot Mike Barnes :-)
