At the end of each year comes the time for analysis and plans. Our new goal is to make our educational website Archimedes' Lab more independent and financially viable. So, we need the support of everyone who believes in the power of education.
Take a moment, think about it, for the cost of just a coffee, you can contribute to the educational Archimedes’ Lab Project today and into the future!
To make a regular monthly donation please visit Marie-Jo’s page on Patreon:

Backfire of Melancholy
Magic Self-moving Pattern. Repeated concentric patterns with contrasted hues cause many peoples' visual systems to “see” the presence of motion where there is none! If you focus on the center of the picture, it will expand (to enhance the effect move your head forward and back from the screen). This picture may also induce strong hypnagogic state (mildly altered state of consciousness). In fact, such pictures are used in therapy to get wake induced lucid dreams or to simply enter into a meditative state.
