when spun, creates
the illusion of
movement.

Images are
flipped through a notebook
at high speeds.
Light passed through
a strip of images to
project a larger picture
on a screen.

Walt Disney
Persistence of vision is a phenomenon of the eye, by which an afterimage is thought to persist on the retina.
http://stanford.io/12EDEpj
The working principle for all animations is the phenomenon of the persistence of vision.
This simple theory states that when an image is perceived, the retina captures the image for about one tenth of a second before processing the next image.
If a set of still pictures flashes at a speed faster than 10 fps, the brain will be confused and will bind all the still images together and create the perception of movement.
