Optical illusions: the illusion of movement

As you can probably tell by all my optical illusions threads, I love them all and this thread is for the kind of optical illusion where your brain is tricked into seeing movement where there is no movement.

Here's a famous example with the Rotating Snakes optical illusion:

Stare at the black dot and move your head forward and backward and the circle will move:

I like the hidden picture type of optical illusion, like this:

I think in this one that it is the movement that creates the illusion:

@Robert Gentel,
1. Crazy Circle Illusion!
This is a simple but a goodie. Watch as the balls rotate in a circle ..but focus on one ball at a time and notice that it follows a straight line. Also, watch at the moment when there are only four balls moving, it forms a rotating square between the four balls. This is just another example of looking deeper into something so simple and discovering a hidden pattern.

2. Amazing Audio illusion
Listen to this video until the end, and when it stops, play it again to hear the difference, tune continue to "creep - up"... It will blow your mind!

This is a twitter video - no idea how to embed but it is a really freaky 3D painting.
