    Well...I don't think its really working that way. If you cover up ALL the dots but one, you will still see it alternate between pink and green. That's no optical illusion...that's actually changing colors. There IS a real green dot.

    However, its true that if you stare at it the pink ones disappear. That part IS an optical illusion.

    Actually, the dots never turn green. They simply flicker on and off. What you perceive as green is an after image of the magenta (like a negative of it). Just another part of the illusion.

    Hmmm. I'm mixed on this. It does appear to turn green for a fraction of a second after the pink turns off. Cover up all but one to see. Hmmm.

    In any case, the pink disappearing after staring for a while is a very good illusion. (Didn't I post this here a month or two ago?)

    Take the gif apart in a photo editor, in no frame is there any green.
