    I can't move my eyes quick enough to see if the other circles are spinning or not. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Wow, that is freaky.

    Does anyone know why the illusion works the way it does? An explanation would be illuminating!

    This is a very nice version of an optical illusion that's known for a long time.

    Explanation:
    Slight anomalies in the optical system of the human eye (cornea + lens + glass body) make parts of the image with small textures change place on the retina a little bit - the amount of the size of the structure. This happens outside the central area (fovea) of the retina (which is the best and has the highest resolution) and is visible when the eye is moving (which is a normal "scanning" movement of our gaze). Thus structures that are small enough appear to move (instead of being ever so slightly distorted, like the larger structures do and which goes virtually unnoticed).

    Once you force your eyes to be totally still (compared to the image), the illusion disappears.

    Rats! Nothing I do makes it look like it's moving.

    Any suggestions?

    (Please, no ideas involving liquor. [​IMG])

    Perhaps you're too far from the screen? I find it worked better at the office than it does at home. At work, I'm sitting closer to the monitor.

    Not moving for me either, either up close or farther away. Don't know what that says about me.
