When we stare at a color for a long time and look at something black and white we are able to see colors that are opponents to the original colors in the image. For example, yellow’s opponent color is blue.

When you stared the dot on the screen for a long time; your eyes adapted all the different colors that were shown, that’s why when the actual black and white image was flashed on the screen for the second time; you were able to see it in full color because the cone cells was desensitized and it needs time to re adjust. Cone cells are a type of photo receptor cells in the retina of our eyes.

Basically, the neurons in the retina and thalamus are turned on and off by these colors and adapt them. It’s Science and definitely not a mind trick at all.
