Joni Mitchell: I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all.

Cover up the Green Cylinder and you can see it. It also looks like "A" is on top of "B", when you do that, (you may have to block out a few of the other squares also, but you can train you eye to see it both ways).
