    Multistability in perceptual tasks has suggested that the mechanisms underlying our percepts might be modeled as nonlinear, deterministic systems that exhibit chaotic behavior. We present evidence supporting this view, obtaining an estimate of 3.5 for the dimensionality of such a system. A surprising result is that this estimate applies for a rather diverse range of perceptual tasks.
