Yes, me too.

It's a very strange and freaky sensation.

After watching a few cycles of Mosiac and then going back to the desktop, I get a vertigo sensation. It's almost like the iMac screen keeps wanting to "grow" larger.

Any others?

Yes, it's normal :). It's a sort of optical illusion.

Your eyes get used to watching a photo that constantly shrinks. So if you watch the effect for too long and then look at something static (e.g. a picture), your brain thinks that it will shrink. However, the image stays the same size so you see the picture coming at you.

Not a very scientific explanation, but I hope you understand what I mean :p.

It's the same sensation I get after driving for hours (10+). As you drive you watch the road pass underneath you, then when you stop for a break or something, it seems as if the ground is still moving.
