I saw this image on Facebook and I find it mesmerizing.
You should probably stay away from this website then if you want to get anything done…

Interesting brain or optical effect; it would be interesting to know the physiological reason?
Just guessing here, but it seems to me my brain is thinking the circle is out of focus and continually trying to make adjustments that would bring it in to focus. Maybe the pixelated space surrounding the fuzzy circle convinces your brain that there should be a point of clear resolution.
It’s got a regular pattern surrounded by a random pattern, that at first glance looks like it’s made of big blurry pixels in the middle and a small black-and-white pixels around the outside but then immediately resolves into gradations of white through various shades of grey to black. It’s also fascinating to see the little randomness at the conjuction of the two patterns; is this an artifact of digitalisation?
You’re getting verrry thinky…
You might also like the illusion labeled “Seal” on this page.
The inner circle just seems like it’s shaking, and “behind” the pixelated square. Headache, anyone?
Damn you for that link! It’s a good thing today isn’t a workday…
