Jastrow's Famous Duck-rabbit

Both are there. One can know and accept that there is two but one can see either one or the other. Both can't be seen at the same time. Such is perception and it is fascinating!

I can see both at once now that I have seen both separately... such is a brain that seeks to perceive all dimensions at once and unveils illusions permanently -- that is to say my brain does not return to perceiving a lie as real once it has been extracted. That's why the only acceptable Republican left of the final 4 is Ron Paul.<br />

the up side of aspergers. did i know this story would come up ? Hehehe.....

Because you're psychic?

Tas...i often think the same thing ;)

It is fascinating that we all see different things .. when looking in the same direction

With all the LMAO that you're doing, your butt must be non-existent by now!!!!<br />
<br />
Innocent little pirate witch, huh?

WADDLE?????? WADDLE??????<br />
<br />
You people are vicious!

hmmmm ..out of a sudden i feel like having rabbit stew with dumplings

and for a very good reason...hehehehe

muahahahahahaha!!! Muahahahaha! <br />
This is getting good. *extra innocent smile*

As if it's just A-OK to turn ship's cooks into bunnies, Missy Pirate Witch!

Missy Trailguide, you may look sweet and innocent, but you are evil......hehe

I saw the duck first and then the rabbit! That was amazing, I saw both. :-)

Tg nice post ....

LOL! Did you see the rabbit before? Maybe somebody took the rabbit again!

uh oh....I'm watching my lemonade. :D

Oh, not again !

Oh good *big smile*<br />
<br />
You are not blind at all TP...datura was really stealing the rabbits before you could see them. She left them alone today. Lesson learned..hehe.

Awww, look at that steam coming out of those big ears. Witch Destry you better do something or we are going to have rabbit stew afterall.

Now I am weally, weally mad.

Hahaha..all those threats are kind off cute coming from a little rabbit.

You better turn me back into a datura!!!! I mean it or the girl pays!!!!!

*peak a boo*


Sorry, Pirate witch!!!!<br />
<br />
we are still hidden!<br />
<br />

Actually, you have not found me!!!!! Mwahahahahaha

hahahaha....haven't found me yet!!!!<br />
Gobble, gobble.......

What!!!!! what!!!!!<br />
<br />
You see a bunny traitor...i see a duck traitor ! I guess the experiment unperdictable way..but it work. <br />
<br />
Ok Datura, where are you hiding ? Now i need asylum !!!

*sigh* Where is that parrot? It will have to sit here and look like a duck. That cook is eating my experiment.

Ok, ok. No more hossenfeffer.<br />
<br />
I promise.<br />
How about duck????

And the lab needs rabbits !!!!!!

For Gawd's sake, the ship needs a cook......<br />

will someone please help the cook!!!!!!!<br />
<br />
that rabbit lover is verrrrrrrrry scaryyyyyyyyy......

Wonder if sharks see duck or rabbit ?

i think that there is peyote in that recipe somewhere.

Ahhh...a nice shiitake lightly sauteed is delicious with rabbit!

Ask Datura....she is the cook!!!! She is in charge of the veggies...or whatever mashrooms are.

tg!!!!!!!!!<br />
<br />
i have to smoke rum in a hookah pipe to be able see rabbits.<br />
<br />
what kind of powdered mushrooms have you been smoking?<br />
<br />
love <br />

Another little Sir Echo!<br />
They're here, they're there, they're everywhere!!!!!

TP.... ducks bill is the rabbit ears :) Mind you...Datura keeps stealing my rabbits so you have to look fast *sigh*

Princess, the duck's bill becomes the rabbit's ears. Try that.<br />
<br />
Oh boy, is this hossenfeffer good!!!!

So true, Datura, it will bring some beautiful color to the table!<br />
My date shall be Mr. Stripey.

Myo..<br />
<br />
Squint harder.... That's not a carrot or potato

Arggggggg Lilt!!!!!! A slice of Mr Stripey with stewed rabbit would be heavenly!!!!!

TRY is the keyword here..hehe.<br />
<br />
Excuse me now, i have to have a drink. Maybe i'll see the turkey!

That Datura, always trying to make us LEARN something...

On a serious note, for anyone interested in the phenomenon of perception, I would highly recommend the book The Lens of Perception by Hal Zina Bennett, Ph.D.<br />
<br />
Now, if you would excuse me, I have to go check that rabbit. I think it's almost done.....

I've had too many vodka lemonades over on Sailor's boat. I am actually flipping my laptop upside down to see what I could see. It kind of looks like a Thanksgiving turkey with carrots and a big potato.

Oh my goodness....and here i thought that with all that natural food thing no one would want to touch my cloned animals. <br />
<br />
Hope you have a lots in that barrel to share Happy Sailor :) I have a whole crew of pirates to feed before i can continue the experiment.

Always willing to share! Even the special stuff make make an appearance...<br />

Yes!!! Clone more!<br />
<br />
I have a whole pirate crew to feed!

Exactly, Joy :) Preceptions shift ;)<br />
<br />
No wonder Our dear TP can see the animals. Datura cooked them!!!! And in rum too!!! Now i will have to clone some more. Pass the Jack, Happy's going to be a long night.

MMMMMMMmmmmmm....just smell that rabbit stewing in rum! I used rum instead of port. I think it will be even better.<br />
<br />
Oh! I better go check on the duck....don't want to overcook it!

Hahahaha....Lilt. I have been warned about people who will see something other than the two ;)Happy sailor ...share your vision please..i like it *grin*

Of course i am right TUM! Datura can't just pop into here and cook my lab animals. Ohhhh, you mean the preception thing...i just want to see what others see ;)<br />
<br />
Frito.. that's how i see it :)<br />
<br />
Awww,((((((((TP)))))))). Which one can't you see, the duck or the rabbit? Or neither ?

Yea... I tried too... All I can see is a bottle of single barrel Jack...

What a weird looking horse.

Yummmmmmm....hossenpheffer AND Duck a l'Orange!!!!!!

If I look towards the left I see the duck....towards the right I see the rabbit... So, depending on where I look I'll see a completely different figure...and they are both true.

Hey!!!!!! Leave this rabbit right here in this story Datura!And the duck too. What was i thinking... posting this with all the hungry sailors aroud. *sigh*

Nice! Aaaaaaaand I think you're right :)

Ahhhhh, there's the rabbit I need for Max's Hossenpheffer!!!!!

Ahhh, so you must be seeing the duck Zeggle :) Can you see the Rabbit ? Can you see both at the same time? No, no concept of words here at all ;)
