Posted by Allyson on February 22, 2011
Just FWI or for your information. Your supposed to look at the wall or like a blank surface after you look at the dot for about 30 or 60 seconds.P.S. it helps when you blink rapidly.

You should actually see a white dove on a green or turquoise background because when you stare at red, you red retina cells (they help you see red) get tired so you see green form you green retina cells
Posted by Trivia crack @iluvdolphins on February 8, 2015
From not form (in my previous comment)
Posted by Trivia crack @iluvdolphins on February 8, 2015
And in my first comment you should see a red dove on a green/turquoise not a white dove sorry
