You think you can see, but you can’t

Okay, I think this is the trippiest shit I’ve ever seen, including what I’ve seen while actually tripping. (Via.) It’s a series of optical illusions, each of which tricks you so you think you’re seeing two different colors, but really they’re the same. There’s no good way to explain, you’ll just have to see it and experience the vertigo for yourself.

Relatedly, I’ve always though the word “vertigo” sounded like the name of a color. A very pale blue, maybe, or a dusty sort of lavender. Something muted and airy and faint, like the way that vertigo feels.

Also, many more disturbing illusions at the same site.
