Optical illusion
From the website: "If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, you will only see one color, pink. If you stare at the black + in the center, the moving dot turns to green. Now, concentrate on the black + in the center of the picture. After a short period of time, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will only see a green dot rotating if you're lucky! It's amazing how our brain works. There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don't disappear. This should be proof enough, we don't always see what we think we see."

You should. If you can keep your eyes still, the pink does fade. I had them come in and out because my eyes don't stay still. I even had them dissapear after 'turning green'.

they forgot to add...

the phantom circle of green dots that appears beside the circle of pink dots the second you shift your eyes. That is VERY freaky.
