15. Often my computer screen does that too

 

if I only use peripheral vision to look at it, which is a trippy thing to do,
there are all kinds of things going on that disappear and/or are fixed and
not moving, if I look directly at my screen.

I used to work with autistic children around 10 y.o. and one of them named
"Timmy" LIVED in his peripheral vision we discovered. Whatever he seemed
to be "looking at" with his rather blank stare, was NOT what he was paying
attention to, he was actually looking at everything around him all the time it
seemed.

I wonder if this phenomenon has a name?
