Eye of The Dragon Illusion

As you move your eyes around these pictures, pattern in use produces an illusory movement, making the “Eye of The Dragon” ascend or descend.

  4. I can easily keep first two static I am not sure what the last one is trying to do as I can’t see any movement, but then my eyes work independently from each other and have the same strength
