Yes- and there is , I believe, an actual and measureable physiological reason. The eye, retina and visual cortex seem to be programmed to interpret the diagonal as movement- I will do some research into this, as I believe it is well known in neurology...
What concerns me, what I find an interesting paradox, is that the same element which on the one hand, in physical construction effects, (and thus should represent) strength and stability, is, on the other, seen by the eye as disturbing and invoking instability.
