    Provide an adequate solution to the OP question and the problem goes away...
    What is it about the OP you don't understand?

    I get the impression from your post that you think our visual ability is objectively real, as I do, so we have much in common...or do we?

    according to who... if not science...
    Why do you contradict yourself?
    then post
    is that your own opinion or is it based on science?

    It's unnecessary. It's like repeating (as far as we know) after every statement. Or "that's the way it is based on current knowledge". What else would it be based on?

    The moon is roughly 250,000 miles away. Is it necessary to say "based on mainstream science"? This conversation is as silly as someone claiming that the moon is only 2,000 miles away because it makes me happy that way or because it seems to me that is about right.

    If I was to question the distance you quote, then I would be stating that "according to you" blah blah blah....
    what is wrong with that and what is wrong with you?
    I am questioning the science that supports the notion that all we observe visually is an illusion.
    so of course I would state "according to science" ....blah blah blah...

    OK lets see how your mirror neural system works.

    Who can solve this problem? The relevance will be become clear later.
    Please post your answer in *white* so it is invisible.

    What we process and translate into a visual experience is NOT an illusion, it is a mental
    approximation of available data. There are limits to this ability.

    And QQ, you should have qualified your OP question with a distinction between "optical illusion" and a "cognitive illusion". These are different functions of "perception" and "perspective".

    lol, you'll need to indicate where you have the placed the "invisible" number. Such as this ; (?)

    Ah, ok, found it........ You're right.

    QQ, your turn.

    It appears the source of your image is an illusion as well (chuckle)

    No, the source of the image is a mathematical computer coding of values and functions..

    And the mathematical answer to the question is a value (number). Did you solve it?

    It isn't that hard to just press a number on your computer, then edit that number to white.

    No, you're obfuscating. All I ask that you solve the pattern and answer the question. What is so illusionary about that?

    Quite.

    This is one of the most idiotic threads I have seen in the hard science sections of the forum. Reminds me of Motor Daddy and the boat.

    The image is not displaying...
    and can be proved as not displaying with the print screen image posted...#505

    What can't you understand about that?

    How would you know if you only saw the codes and not the image containing the cognition test?
    Apparently Seattle did and favored me with a response.

    But perhaps this might help.
