这双腿擦了油吗这双腿擦了油吗

  最近这张照让社交媒体上的人们绞尽了脑汁,你能分辨它到底是擦了油,还是画的白线吗?

  What started innocuously at the beginning of the week as nothing more than a quirky point-of-view snap of an Instagram user’s legs has quickly escalated into an internet sensation on a scale not seen since the hotly contested colour of "that dress" in 2015 made the world want to tear its eyes out. At issue in the current hullabaloo is whether we initially perceive an unusual slickness to the skin, as if the legs had been oiled, or whether we see merely a few streaks of white paint smudged on her bare outstretched pins.

  2015年那件连衣裙诡异的颜色使得不少人都恨不得把自己眼珠子抠出来,而上周Instagram上一张照片又再现了那时的盛况,很快就在网上造成了轰动。照片上是博主的一双腿,这双腿看起来非常光滑、闪闪发亮,而人们吵得不可开交的问题就是“这条腿到底是擦了油,还是仅仅只是在她伸出来的光腿上画了一些白色的线?”

  In the 48 hours since the photo of Hunter Culverhouse's legs was re-posted on Wednesday by a mischief-making Twitter user, social media hasn't stopped wringing its hands over what is and isn't visible. Particularly unnerving to some viewers of the photo has been their inability to re-see the initial shininess that they had first perceived and to unsee the painted streaks that – look away now if you don't want to know the score – are really what's responsible for conjuring the appearance of glossiness.

  周三的时候,一名恶作剧推特用户将原博主亨特·卡尔弗豪斯的这张腿照再次发到了网上,两天之内社交媒体上的人们都没有缓过来争论这个问题的兴奋劲儿。而特别感到不可思议的是那些第一次看到这张照片认为是擦了油,但是后来发现其实是画的白线的那些人们--如果你不想“走火入魔”的话,最好就不要看。

  Though the deceptively simple optical trick has caught the world by surprise this week, in fact the principle behind it is a very familiar one to many, even if they don't realise it. The illusion is a product of our suggestibility as a species – an innate impressionability with which our brains are hardwired. Put simply, our minds are desperate to comprehend larger patterns – an evolutionary proclivity that has helped us survive and thrive.

  尽管这个带有欺骗性的光学小技巧抓住了全世界人们的眼球,但是它背后的原理对于许多人来说并不陌生--即使他们并没有察觉到。这种幻觉是人类暗示感应性的产物--这是一种我们大脑中生来就有的固有印象。简单地说,要理解更大一些的信息就必须要用我们的大脑来进行处理--这是一种帮助我们生存和繁荣的进化倾向。
