RE: The dress that sparked WWIII
Anyone did what I did? Look hard at the picture and cannot fathom how people can actually see the dress as white and gold

Almost. I can't see how anyone could see it as blue and black. OK the white has a blueish tinge, but black rather than brown / gold??

Maybe it's something to do with the monitor? I've looked at the picture in the morning and the evening and it's the same each time.

RE: The dress that sparked WWIII
OK so husband now says that it's blue and black. So I copied a section of the gold into gimp and pasted it onto a white background and he saw it as gold / brown. I changed the background to black and he still saw it as gold / brown.

I then did the same for the white section and he saw pale blue. I changed the background to black and he saw blue. I admit that it's a pale blue, pearlescent blue, but more like an off-white. But then he looked back at the original picture and just saw a blue and black dress. His perception of the picture changed. He thinks that his brain is automatically adjusting for it being over-exposed.

Color constancy.

Edit: Also mood does not affect what colors we see. My walls in my bedroom are white and whether I'm sad or happy they have been and always will be white. Drinking Beverage

I was a little sad that the illusion is lost on me... Then I stopped being sad and returned to being the awesome, true colour detective I am.

...well maybe still a little sad that I literally CAN'T see it as gold/white or black/blue Huh

No no no no no. It's blue. I say it's blue for one reason.

So I can post this great old song.
