comment Can humans keep track of two unrelated rhythms?
I love polyrhythm - though that's not quite what I'm talking about here. With polyrhythm the underlying beats are related such that the pattern repeats after a few measures. For this question I'm interested with two completely unrelated patterns so that the pattern never repeats.

comment What color is this dress? — And why do some see it as white and gold and others see it as black and blue?
I actually noticed this myself. After thinking the dress was gold and white I glanced back at my screen where the dress was almost totally scrolled off the screen to the top, and I said "hey! the dress is now black and blue!?"

comment The “Backwards Bike” and implications for how we think
Thanks for your interesting answer! But I'm actually most interested in that bizarre transition from one control system to the other and why they should somehow still exist, but be walled off from each other. I've updated my question.
