This site will explain the McCullough Effect illusion, and allow you to deliberately induce it in yourself.

http://www.michaelbach.de/ot/col-McCollough/index.html

Essentially, it causes one to see nonexistent colours in monochrome scenes that contain only stripes. Pic related will seem tinted green and pink if you have induced the effect.

There are plenty of similar illusions; the interesting thing about this one is its longevity. After a few minutes of induction, most people will see the effect for months. For some people, it will never go away entirely.

So... fair warning. Stay away if you do colour-sensitive work.

What the fuck. It's been a couple minutes and it's still there, feels weird.
However I see green in the vertical lines and pink in the horizontal, which is the opposite of what the brainwash shows you.

fuck this, not going to damage my brain

Not an illusion, more like neural imprinting.

>>52381033
Move your eyes around it; don't stare at it.

What kind of damage to the brain

>>52381033
theres a little letter that appears every second in different places, you're suppose to follow that.
>>
>watched it for seven minutes
fuck

>>52381225
None, you're just learning to see something that is not there.
it should go away someday.

>Adapting for 10 minutes is supposed to give a lasting effect over months.
Enjoy february.
>>
>fair warning

fuck you man, last time I saw this crap I was seeing green for 5 hours.
>>
tip: just switch the colors to "unlearn" this shit. Don't "adapt" too much for negating the effect.

I heard on a YouTube video that you'll see some fucked up colors for up to a month. Not permanent, but still...

I still see some of it after three years.

>>52383751
Supposedly it has some semi-permanent effects on the visual cortex.

I am not affected by your warlock ways.
>>
>>52384427
It's not the image in my OP that does it, that's just a test pattern to see whether you've been induced. (When viewed white a bright background as intended, the gaps will seem coloured if you have.)

The inducing images are coloured and need to be looked at in sequence. It's all covered in the link.

>>52384175
If it's any consolation, it only applies to specific patterns/stripes. Unless you're photoshopping zebras behind bars, it's actually quite unlikely to affect your work.

looked it for 250s, the horizontal lines look a little blue but apart from that nothing

>>52384507
Really? THank god dude but i still damaged my fucking brain... still okay.
>>
>>52380842
If you stared for that long you're going to be seeing the patterns everywhere for months.

It's been months since I last did it.
I'm not sure, but I do think the upper right and lower left square in your pic still seem somewhat reddish to me. I don't see anything green, though.

Enjoy spring.

>>52380745

You know, I've noticed this when reading books both on ereaders and on paper. I wonder if its from exposure to optical illusions or whatever.
