That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.

Optical illusions by Professor Akiyoshi
It’s hard to believe that all these colorful images in front of us are still images, but not animations. Kitaoka Akiyoshi is a Professor in the Department of Psychology at Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto, Japan studying visual perception, visual illusion, optical illusion, trompe l’oeil, 3D, etc. Specializing in visual perception, Kitaoka Akiyoshi has created a kaleidoscopic picture-illusion full of colors, based on the modern concept of Gestalt psychology. Gestalt psychology is a theory of the Berlin School on mind and brain. And the operational principle of gestalt psychology is that the brain is holistic, parallel, and analog, with self-organizing tendencies. The principle maintains that the human eye sees objects in their entirety before perceiving their individual parts, suggesting the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Kurt Koffka is the author of the original phrase (though mistranslated) “The whole is other than the sum of the parts”.

Unicellular organisms colorful kingdom

Unicellular organisms colorful kingdom. It is believed that single-celled organisms were first inhabitants on Earth, and their colorful world is deservedly called the kingdom by scientists. The oldest microorganisms are considered to be bacteria and archaea. In fact, Colorful single-celled animals and prokaryotes were discovered by Antonie Philips van Leeuwenhoek – a Dutch tradesman and scientist, known as “the Father of Microbiology”. A unicellular organism consists of only one cell. These organisms live together, and each cell in the colony is the same. However, each cell must carry out all life processes in order for that cell to survive. In contrast, even the simplest multicellular organisms have cells that depend on each other in order to survive. Most unicellular organisms are of microscopic size and are thus classified as microorganisms. However, some unicellular protists and bacteria are macroscopic and visible to the naked eye.
