    The figure IS spinning counter-clockwise.  I can make myself see the illusion that she is spinning clockwise if I wish, but analysis of the shadow points out that it is, in fact, illusory.

    And the whole "right brain/left brain" bit has been discredited for a long long time.

    'Dox out.

... seeing through all the tricks would probably be the lamest experience you could ask for when going to a magic show. Of course it's an illusion! I don't know if the left/right brain is "IN" or "OUT" but I thought it was fun to observe the difference of perception between us and how our brain process the info differently. Why are some seeing the dancer going counter-clockwise while other see her clockwise? There is something right there that underline an intriguing difference. It was fun...
