HAHA! that was great!
unfortunately, I'm not going to suddenly become a believer. If you look at the original picture, it IS the picture you see aftewards, just inverted. That illusion has been around for a while, but now somebody decided to creep people out by actual creating a legit picture!

It's Jesus ain't it. It looks cool also if you just look and the blank white spaces on your computer screen, I didn't even have to blink my eyes then.

Trust me, I know the science behind it... it's isn't vague and sloppy, it just looks like it. The image you get when you look at the piece of paper is a bit vague, and your brain just generlises it to look like Jesus. To it a few times and compare the two, you'll see...

It's called retinal fatigue. It's where the image is temporarily burned on your retina. When you look away what you see is the opposite of the original image. The original image can be "vague and sloppy" because it's next to impossible for a person to stare at one point without drifting occasionally. It works with colors too.

This one will make you think:
It's a 25 minute video, fyi.
The Power of Situation: with Philip Zimbardo.

I remember watching this video in high school psych class, and my teacher sayin this was a good video, "minus the fact that Dr. Zimbardo looks like a cartoon character..."

I found this one interesting:
Free Image Hosting at

Not because I couldn't figure it out but because my favorite all time rock group, Def Leppard, has it on their album cover RETRO ACTIVE they release in 1993 where they put all of their music that never made it to their other albums on.
