Is she rotating clockwise or anticlockwise?
I see different rotations:
When I am watching the video, I see clockwise rotation (i.e. the rotation from right to left); when I am reading, I can sense the rotation in anticlockwise direction.
Update Oct 19th 2007:
which part of your brain is more active?
If the lady appears to be spinning clockwise, its right part which is more active.
If the lady appears to be spinning anticlockwise, the left part is more active.
I am not convinced with these statements. However, agree that it is optical illusion.
Quoted from :
THE Right Brain vs Left Brain test ... do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?
Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise (?) though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.
