Blind Spot Insanity

So your brain is always generating bologna data for your blind spot. But since we are so good at facial recognition (that's my theory at least, feel free to correct me), we realize something is horribly wrong with this information in this example. Heh.

I have to wonder how much of this is based on personal perceptions.

Seeing Dr. House with 4 eyes each time he went by was interesting.

That was creeeepy as hell... The longer I watch it the more and more disfigured they become!

Pretty cool effect

That was very weird but neat. I agree with the above poster, the longer I watched it the more distorted it became to the point that their noses were where their eyes should be lol.

Another thing I think is interesting is that I bet everyone fills in the blanks a little different. Halle Berry had alien/grey eyes for me, and Robin Williams' face was just a ball of meat.

Awesome. But the sience behind it is flawed, this is just what they look like without all that makeup.

NO!!! Halle had the same for me, I had to stop and stare at it to make sure it was real, and man that is crazy.

Now if I could find a way to artificially enhance euphoria, watching this who'd need lucy!!

Man. What a trip! Robbin Williams was merely a blob, and I agree that at least one of them looked like a fricken alien! Thanks for that.

That was really interesting...in a creepy kind of way. I have an enlarged blind spot on my right eye, which is not a problem usually because, as the OP points out, the brain anticipates and fills in the gaps, it only hinders me when something approaches from the 12 to 3 o'clock position. Then it will seemingly just come out of nowhere. Field sports, in particular, are a no-no

If I cover my left eye, the face on the right side will have no right eye and the opposite will happen if I cover my right eye. I also find I can not stare at the cross for too long, its like "OMG I have to see if he/she really looks like that". I wonder if that could be done in real life with real faces or does it rely on the shown faces having their eyes aligned rather then blindspot gap filling.

My brain hates it when it gets exposed that way!
Does a really bad job filling in the blanks doesn't it. Interesting thread.

I've seen through some kind of veil before and everyone on tv looked freakish kinda like this, like they are really crazy looking but we are programmed some how to see beauty, when in fact its not there. I think there is more to this than meets the eye. when I look at the cross these people really appeared messed up and alien, I think it's got something to do with a glitch in a matrix.

Oh no the celebs are all deformed aliens!!! Reminded me of the movie "They Live".

I love these kinds of little tricks that make you confront the fact that your reality is only a perception that can easily become altered.
Still I bet more then a few people will indeed take it as evidence that Tom Cruise really is an alien

Not picking on you but everyone in this thread (which includes me) isn't giving me confidence we should be using eyewitness testimony as the sole basis for murder convictions. It's a pretty dramatic illustration of how flawed our vision can be. A bit contrived perhaps, but we have other perception problems besides our blind spot.

And I agree with those who said it got kind of creepy after a while.

You can pick on me if you want
I agree with what you said, and I believe police say that eyewitness testimony is notoriously unreliable. The creepiness, imho is another hard wire our brain has, the more something looks out of the norm, the more uncomfortable we are.

Yes, plus our brains have evolved special recognition/processing in the faces dept. See uncanny valley/being able to detect subtle emotions/pareidolia. That's why I think it's so obvious with this example. Our brain filling in data for walls/environment all day doesn't stand out so much. :-)

Heres another image that messes with your built in facial recognition, its almost impossible (for me anyway) to focus on this image and if i try for more then a few minutes I start to feel kind of sick
