I think it really has something to do with the frame rate of the moving display. If you wave your hand rapidly in front of the image, she stops and reverses direction repetedly. You can also make her reverse by blinking when her leg is pointing straight left or right.

No. Go to the morgue, your new home.

Maybe you need to look at what your first impression is before reading it. Mine was that it moved anti-clockwise. Now, it is corrupted since I read the article and can move both ways.

I tried the blinking. If you blink, you miss a critical frame in the loop that is a reference point, I think. It's like a strobe light on a dance flooor that makes everything look jerky.

You're right about the critical frame. There's two - one left and one right. In each of those frames, she has the same appearance wheather she's turning left or right. Blinking at that second stops the progression.

Oh, and by the way, at first glance, she appeared to me to be turning clockwise... I've looked at it enough where I can make her reverse back and forth without blinking.

I see her as turning clockwise . . . which if their breakdown is correct, is weird, since I am very words-and-language oriented and pride myself on my logic.

I certainly can't get her to stop or reverse direction with the techniques any of you suggested.
