    I have noticed that when I look at anything with a lot of closely placed parallel lines (window blinds, a striped shirt, etc.), that the object actually "shimmers" or "vibrates" in a way. It is quite disconcerting. I thinks actually this is an optical illusion caused by the static "interfering" with the ability of the brain to "decode" what it is seeing. I can't stand striped clothes anymore! Anyone else experience this?

    Yes. Sort of looks like the heat wave from pavement. It is very disturbing, I always have to look away!

    Yes I have that too on certain patterns. "Shimmer" is probably how I would describe it. Why do our brains work this way?

    I have the same experience. There is a conference room in particular where I cannot face the blinds because I feel like they are moving in and out of focus. The more light shining in through the blinds, the more I feel like my eyes are crossing or trying to focus on the blinds.
