See the blue and green spirals in images below?  Behind the orange and purple stripes?   ….   Well apparently seeing should not be believing, because they are the same color!   [Verifiable with Photoshop]

Very interesting indeed. Perhaps it would be more interesting if this were a vector image instead of a compressed gif.

I had a look in photoshop and the lines that appear blue have a bluer line around them thanks to the purple stripes, while the lines that appear green are given a more yellowy tinge thanks to the orange lines.
