Look at this closely. I want you to try to visualize the mother. What are you actually seeing of her?

Don't fill anything in with your mind's eye. Don't go by your impression of what is going on. Consider only what you actually see.

What I see are:

-an immobile baby consisting of an orange blob and white blob- just blobs of color, like paint. And Jason Burke agrees- it's how he described it.

- a tree with a double trunk

- a flicking hand.

The only thing that is moving is the flicking hand. The rest is as still as a statue.

But, that is not how it works when you wave. Your hand is at the end of a long flexible, jointed lever, and when you wave it, you're not just flicking your wrist. Your elbow and the shoulder are also going to be moving, and it's going to be visible.  Notice that there are others with visible arms waving, and you see their whole arms moving.  But on the woman, all you see is her hand flicking and nothing else.

Just a flicking hand? That is fake!
