The Magic Yo

LSD Visual Effects

  Yeah, yeah, yeah.
  Here's the inevitable,
  but different, pitch
  for money. There
  are significant costs
  entailed in bringing
  this material to you.

  And as you know,
  without resources,
  nothing gets done in
  the Real world. The
  question is how we
  handle those resources
  and why you should
  trust us and invest
  in Yoism.

Instructions

  • Enlarge the window and the image below these instructions (if you did not get here by clicking a link on our Timothy Leary/LSD page, pressing F11 may help maximize the screen).

  • If you are using Internet Explorer and the image is not rotating smoothly, try pressing F11; this sometimes helps.

  • Get the floating "Magic Yo" into the center of the screen.

  • With your eyes 12 to 20 inches from the screen, fix your focus carefully on the floating Yo at the very center of the whirling pattern. If it stops and starts, maintain your focus until it runs continuously. Once it is running smoothly, stare at it for ten seconds at a time.

  • Then look steadily at some familiar object (like your computer keyboard) or scene.

To download this animation, right-click on the floating Yo, and then choose "Save the picture/image." (For the best effect, open the saved file, MagicYo.gif, with your browser.)

Drugs & Entheogens

versions of this uncanny illusion, click here.

Here are two rectangular (and, for some people, more
powerful) versions of this uncanny illusion. Best
viewed in full screen; follow the same instructions:

You may need to get or update Adobe Flash Player to view this video.
If the video above fails to play, left-click here.

Here's another rectangular version.

(Again, follow the same instructions.)

This one is really twisted!
First, enlarge your screen so the rotating spirals fill the screen.
Then, follow the instructions above. Your world will be quite twisted.

Moving and utterly impossible, concentric circles
(BTW if you put the tip of your mouse on any
circle, you will see that the spirals are illusions.
In reality, these are full, concentric circles.)
