comment Is this optical illusion the visual equivalent of binaural beats?
@draks try to be more precise when you mean 'brain' and when you mean 'mind', and definitely try to be more precise with the word 'stimulate'; Any stimuli trivially stimulates. Also, drastically changing the question (by for instance changing the image it is based around) after it has answers is usually considered bad form.

Welcome to the site! Glad to have you, here. I have formatted your question slightly for readability (and added two tags), feel free to roll-back my edits if they do not preserve the spirit of your question.

comment Subconscious vs Unconscious
@cpx the whole point of the vagueness of 'subconscious' in everyday use is that it is not clear what people mean when they say it. Sometimes they mean 'preconscious' and sometimes they mean 'unconscious' (and sometimes they mean something else completely). They way you used 'subconscious' in your question (and as I already explained in my answer) is more-or-less the same as the technical term 'preconscious'.

comment What are current neuronal explanations and models of 'consciousness'?
I think the scholarpedia article on models of consciousness is a very good source for this question.

comment Visual search: complexity of positive vs negative search tasks
The only 'self-theorizing' is that "not" is not an essential property. But if you think the answer is incorrect, or does not answer the question, then I welcome the downvote. I personally think @H.Muster gave a better answer to this question, and I am not 100% sure why OP accepted my answer, apart from maybe the reference to Treisman that completely answers his specific question.

comment Visual search: complexity of positive vs negative search tasks
@vizzero thanks for the suggestion, but the goal of my answer was to point out that there is a distinction between parallel and sequential processing of information in search tasks (as was pointed out by Treisman in 1985). If you follow the references forward, you can find further examples. The testing section is just a long-hand way of explaining how constant-factor equivalence (and basic asymptotic analysis) works, and how you could start to check parallel-vs-serial in an experiment. Note that this is a pretty standard way to do these tests.
