I don't really know how I feel yet about this essay. I am still trying to digest it. All of these essays this semester have sort of blown my mind and really just made me have so many thoughts and have brought in so much new information, I feel like I have a lifetime of thinking to do to work these things out in my mind. I am a thinker. I will toy with these thoughts for the rest of my life. It's not a bad thing. I am excited about it. I love food for thought.
One thing that stood out to me about the double picture photos was the idea that you could not see both images at one time. I thought about the mother in law and the duck rabbit. Some of my friends, when shown the images, could not see one and could only see the other. I, on the other hand have always been able to see both. I'm not sure if I see them at the same time, but I feel like It's possible and I may. But maybe it's switching within a split second in my mind without me noticing and never really seeing both images at the exact same time?
I thought of those pictures from when we were younger where you have to get really close to the image and then you have to cross your eyes and move back slowly. You receive a picture shown in depth perception. Some people can not, for the life of them, get to the point of seeing that image. What makes us able to see optical illusions and why can some people not see them??
