What's the one with the grey 'smile' across the bottom. That doesn't seem to do anything to me ?

OK so I've been staring for hours at the pictures of a car with a fancy paint-job and nothing seems to wobble!  Explain that one smarty pants!

I love these things!  I also like that old animated black and white swirl that you just stare at for a few minutes then look around the room.. Whoooaa..

I didn't notice before now, but if you're on an lcd screen, some of the patterns don't have the same effect.

WES....yep...those ones are well freaky...when you look around and the whole room is twisting and turning...

That's interesting Roberth...I've noticed the same thing..............though On my LCD TFT screen they do seem ok...but on a conventional CRT monitor they do appear more vivid.

You feel dizzy when your brain doesnt agree with one of your other senses, So your eyes are seeing something different then your brain percieves and it makes you dizzy, this can also happen with motion, If your brain does not agree with your body that there is motion you get dizzy.

Interesting...

Yeah, the one with the big smile line at the bottom didn't seem to do anything, but I am on a flat screen.  Also, if you focus on one point in any of the pictures, it will stop moving, at least, it does for me. It's only when my eyes are moving around that the images seem to move.

That's because your eyes are strictly taken, part of your brain. Their input is very, very important, and if they get confused, so does your brain. Normally, nothing to get worried about, it's like looking from a great height and feeling like you're going to fall, but nothing except your letting go can actually make you do so.

Although some people cannot stop themselves, and they do fall - epilepsy is called 'falling sickness' in a lot of languages, exactly because of this. Even stroboscope lights can set off an attack. On the other hand, they can train themselves to feel an onset of the attack, and nip it in the bud, so to speak, by looking away and concentrating on something different. It's letting outside patterns 'take over' or dictate your natural patterns, and that's what causes the weird feeling.

Unless you're really uncomfortable with them, maybe you could practice your concentration with them, seeing exactly when you should give up and look away. You'll find that you will be able to look at them longer and longer without trouble, because your brain can get inured to almost anything, after repeated exposure.

And then it just becomes a silly pic.

And why does it?

No, although it's the most prominent one. They all have similarities, though. Remember the effect where carwheels on tv look like they spin the wrong way? (You can see this on your bicycle tires too, when you ride under artificial light.) It's because the light is not there all the time, but on and off real fast, so you see only picture after picture, and your brain wants to fill in the blanks, so it looks like it's going backwards. Same thing really. Maybe you can even come up with your own examples when you see the processes underlying them.

Other ailments, like migraine, can be set off in similar fashion by watching a low sun glittering over water. It's pretty much identical to the glittering people complain of that nearly always precedes their migraine-attacks, and will inadvertedly work as such.

So, strangely, patterns from the outside 'overshouting' your own brain patterns and rhythms, can be a real pain. Literally.
