David S.

is it me, or is the parallel-eye thing a lot harder to do than the cross-eyed one?


I can't do either one. As soon as my eyes cross, they lose focus and everything becomes a blur. And now I'm having trouble focusing on anything... I think I'd better not try that ever again.

I could never do those 3D posters. They were great at giving me a headache, though.


Unfortunately I'm blind in my left eye, so forget it. My wife enjoyed them though. It took her about a week to get the hang of it.

How coincidental. This weeks homily at my parish included on how God can give us a rug--there was a story involved--that has patterns within patterns. However one can only see the beauty and hidden "messages" with a life time of simple exposure and consistent reflection and growth.


There was an article by Mark Lowery in Envoy magazine that uses a similar analogy to the Magic Eye images: http://www.envoymagazine.com/backissues/5.2/magiceye.htm

Tim J.,

I love your last two analogies. Keep 'em coming.

If I could, I would like to add just a little piece to this one:

I've found that once I've "gotten" the image, I can lay it down and when I look at it again (if I don't wait too long between looks), it just pops right back out at me. I still "see" it.

However, if I've put the image away, and don't come back to it for a while, then I have to struggle all over again to "see" it.

Needless to say, those who "find" religion but don't practice it very often will have difficulty "seeing" the reasons for it the next time.

I don't know if this makes any sense outside my head, but Tim's analogy sure does help me.
