That whole site was amazing- I'd put it down in any "Top 10 of the web" list.
Thanks for posting it here.

I have to admit that I was pretty worried at first and wouldn't focus on the magenta circle too closely- I thought it was another one of those trick sites that lets out a scream and flashes a monster after a minute or so...

Thanks for the link. A great source of self amusement for several hours. The guy's explanations are pretty interesting as well.

He didn't explain this, but you see green because magenta is it's complementary colour (magenta is the absence of green). (Cyan is to red, and yellow is to blue). The cones in our eyes capture green, red and blue light waves.
