scroll down so you can only see from her knee down , you can tell she doesnt actually spin, she just bounces from left to right, right to left. The shadow concurrs with this. If you notice, just when her leg passes the midpoint, it seems to skip, because your brain cant measure the depth of the woman, it fills in the information to make it appear shes spinning

The nice trick here is to figure out how to watch her so she never spins all the way around, reversing the way you watch at each of her hip movements. Wondrous.

Lol... the first 1/2 of the video shows the figure going clockwise and it's silhouette going counter-clockwise, then it subtly shifts for the other 1/2 of the animation showing the figure going counter-clockwise and it's silhouette going clockwise.

As 'The Smart One' said, it tells you if both sides of your brain are communicating together. I was able to notice the 1/2 CW, 1/2 CCW due to the fact that my brain is working...

Easy way to change it's rotation, look at the outstretched leg and see it is a silhouette swing left and right and not in a 3D circle.

If its spinning clockwise, your using the left side of your brain. counterclockwise, the right side. ^_^ or it might be the other way around.....idr:P

use your arm to push and pull the shadow of the arm to make her dance in the direction you want it to go....works for me

If you blink really fast you see the individual frames of this and can influence the witch way your brain sees the girl spinning.

I know this gif is supposed to be an optical illusion teasing your hemispheres (if you try to invert the direction of spinning), but according to the shadow her foot is casting it's counterclockwise. Try to see it clockwise and then look at the shadow. It makes no sense.
