    Cute illusion!
    Between the two "showings" of people, there seems to be, if you look at the people as "columns", a constant number between the two scenes, except the 2nd column.

    There are 5 columns of people.
    The first column of people is constantly 3.
    The third column of people is constantly 2.
    The fourth column is always 3.
    and the last column (the 5th) is always 2.

    It's column 2 that changes from one scene to the next. In one scene there are 2, and the other there are 3, thanks to the person sliding back and fourth that doesn't get cut in any way between the transitions.

    My favorite from that page as to be the one where there are two "wheels" and a small circle in the middle, where when you move towards the circle the wheels move opposite each other...just beautiful.

    heh

    after about 7 hours of staring at that stupid picture...

    the guy third from the right creates the new position.. he slides over while everybody else gets a new top half.

    so it changes from a group of 5 on the left and 7 on the right.. to a group of 6 on the left and a group of 7 on the right.

    and the far left dude just loses the top of his head with no replacement.

    yadda

    All the illusions are very interesitng. A person could spend hours. For me looking too long can cause some nausea.
