Ho! All the possible appearances and existences of samsara and nirvana have the same source, yet two paths and two results arise as the magical display of awareness and unawareness.

Obviously, a rabbit and a duck have just commenced a gentleman's duel.

Apparently, if you immediately see both rabbit and duck you are not the sort of person to be easily manipulated on social media. Most people see a rabbit and can't even work out that the 'ears' are wrong. Others see the duck and then see the rabbit later on. So if you see both you are in a tiny minority, people who can quickly size up a situation and its reality.

Or I have just manipulated you into believing you are special. ;)

Both are true weitsicht.
Or rather all three things are true.
What started out as a light hearted poke by me at the 'What Is A Man- etcetc threads back on February 9th when such posts abounded on the forum, has lost whatever slight point it might have had and become a crashing bore..like me.
But there you go. You think its a good idea to father these wee infants and then they toddle off into cyberworld and take on a life of their own.

Any assertion endorsing the idea that I must be awesome in some aspect, or in general, is irrevocably rooted in fact. Thank you for sharing this highly accurate information. You are admirably knowledgeable and there is obviously much all of us can, and should, learn from you.

I used to think that if it looks like a duck, and walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck..it must be a duck.

But now I see that I was too hasty..
The confusion was compounded when someone named a cat duck.
This cat may or may not be afraid of cucumbers.

The trick with this one is too see there is no spinning.

It starts clockwise and turns counter every time.
No trick to it.

Interesting. For me, it started turning anti-clockwise first. Chance or different wiring :thinking:
Trying to see "not spinning". Now that's a hard one!

It's a question of dominant activity of brain side.

For me it helped to spontaneously interrupt. Quasi PHAT lol

@lukeinaz how come you think the figure doesn't move? Is this how you see it?

Of course the figure moves and appears to spin. When looked at closely I cannot see the spinning leg cross in front of the pivoting leg. The legs just move side to side. Place the image so you can only see the legs and you will see what I mean. If you still can't see it, block everything else and just look at pivoting foot.

Nope, doesn’t help me, just induces a spin direction change. Even the pivot foot with everything else masked seems to spin, one way or another :rolling:

Now I’m beginning to feel dizzy.
