Hi Rosa, you have to stare really straight and focusing ONLY on the "+" (everything around it should be blurry until it disappears). It's difficult to explain but I found that as soon as I kind of open the focus, the pink dots start to reappear. It's a really weird illusion!

Thanks a million Oct 27, 2005

The links are great, too. I especially like Dali's portrait of Lincoln and the little dragon whose eyes follow you wherever you go.

PS: The illusion worked for me as described. Took awhile (great for procrastination).
