I am a theoretical physicist and retired Director of UCITE (University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education) at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. I have a fondness for optical illusions and what they tell us about how our brain processes visual information. But one of the illusions that never fails to amaze me however often I see it is the one where the squares on a checkerboard look different shades of grey even though they are the same. Try moving a horizontal finger slowly from left to right (or vice versa) across the line of separation between the two squares so that it blocks an increasing amount of the line until the line is completely blocked.


Along a very similar vein, check out these optical illusions–in which different squares are actually the same color but look like completely different hues! I thought the same thing, but if you look closely, it does get darker in the shade and lighter in the light.
In photographs, if you want reds to look more saturated, desaturate the whole picture (including the reds) – somehow the brain goes “ZOMG! Remember nothing in the Universe stands still, therefore unless you and your life are the single thing in the Universe that do, then you are falling for the illusion and choosing to not look at the reality….


Keep doing it until you have your answer… If you ask, and ask in a relaxed non-attached-to-the-answer kind of way, then the answer will come. You have not moved on because you have not learned something, not surrendered to something and probably not accepted something what is.
