"The "sonic barberpole" illusion invented by psychologist Roger Shepard at Bell Labs. The illusion consists of a seemingly endlessly rising or falling set of tones. The trick is done by simultaneously sweeping eight (or so) pure tones (i.e., sine waves) tuned exactly one octave apart. The human ear/brain has a really hard time figuring out which pure tone is the fundamental, so it "slips" periodically, just like an eye watching a barberpole (or looking at an Escher staircase)."

- Does Obama / McCain slash fiction exist?

- Conky - Home

An art magazine.
