nonconscious perceptual inference to recover colour constancy, innit. A glimpse of the ordinary eternal machinery that powers the self
@tomstafford True, but 75% of people see white and gold and only a tiny minority 'flip'. Makes me think it's more physiological.
There should be a simple test of the colour constancy hypothesis: create images with the right context that flips perception of the dress.
Actually, still no good explanation of ‘that dress’ mindhacks.com/2015/02/28/act… Why I'm not convinced by the 'science of' articles. Any ideas?
Totally speculative: wonder whether perceptual diffs reflect diffs in melanopsin. Blue sensitive, mediates brightness sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
