    This comes up here now and then.  The terms to search for (www.google.com is
    a good place
    to do so) are "autokinetic" and then "saccades." The basic idea, as said in
    earlier messages, is that
    in a sparse visual field things that are really stationary can seem to be
    moving, vice versa, and
    variations. Not all that uncommon; I've seen it myself several times.
