So, I'm searching through the
www.spc.org website when
I come to this
lovely page with one
of those stereograms. I have no problem in seeing the item inside the
picture, but I don't think I see it “correctly” so to speak. I say that
because while the object (in this case, a jack) does pop out, the parts that
pop out are popped inward, not outward. For example, if the object is
supposed to be a ball floating off the page, I see the object floating, but
I see it as a bowl, not a ball. It's definitely a wierd experience.
I suspect that I see these objects “inside-out” (for lack of a better
term) because my left eye is dominant (I'm lefthanded, by the way) wereas
most people are right-eye dominant.
You can easily test this by holding your hands out in front of you, at arm's
length, using your fingers to make a hole to view through. Focus on an
object that's about 20 feet away (or further). Now, close one eye. If you
can still see the object, that is your dominant eye (or conversely, if you
can't see it, then your other eye is dominant).
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
