Do not adjust your screens: wordplay optical illusions

This gives collapsing binaries a new meaning … I love optical illusions of any kind; today we feature just a few that play on words.



Do you see good or evil?

In black the word good appears; in white, the word evil.

Good and evil are never entirely black and white, are they?





The word ‘you’ (less obvious than ‘me’) is made out in the spaces inside and in between the ‘me’.











And here, the word ‘teach’ is aptly reflected as ‘learn’.

    Very nice…especially I like the symbolism I see in the good/evil one.

    All of these are very symbolic.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
