Watched it yesterday. Destin puts on a good show. His explanations are very well done.

I've seen a lot of things like this, our brain is so involved in what we see and what we overlook. Magicians are good at understanding this because there is often too much information to process our brains fill in.
This is why the police and military love thermal sights, I will love them when the price comes down.

I noticed this as a child. I would look at street lights or any light for that matter and close my eyes and still being able to see the after image. I used to do this all the time and still do actually lol.
Has anyone else ever rubbed their eyes and start to see crazy images and colors? Try it with a little bit of pressure and you can start to see yellow patterns. It's pretty neat.

Yes I have and have you ever noticed how if you drive past a bunch of those galvanized metal posts on the divider wall you can see color that's not there, or if you look at an electric fan at the right speed you can see streaks of color?

That's because our eyes, which have the fastest chemical reactions in our bodies, actually send information down the optic nerve, that's actually like part of our brain in pulse modulation, it's the only way all that information from all those rods and cones can fit on the nerve pathway. So if you have something that oscillates/pulses at a multiple of the eyes pulse speed you get false color signals to the occipital lobes in the back of our brains.

How's that for intelligent design, makes you think huh?
Yes, just amazing.
And we have 3D perception so we don't bump into anything and die before finding a mate, so that our species can get underway.

It's amazing what you see when you close your eyes at night to go to sleep. As you lay there you eventually fall asleep as the canvas goes to black but if you think about seeing again the "stuff" floating around it's still there. Hopefully that made sense.

Unfortunately I can't see any if the videos on my laptop that I'm at right now.:(
It says I don't have the right plugin.
I'll be at my other computer later today, then I'll watch it.:bday:


doesnt imply an engineer, natural selection explains it amazingly
I think what you meant to say was that you think natural selection is the engineer.

If nothing made it, it wasn't made. :D
