“Connected worlds, indeed”

The shimmer effect is created by adding together 4 linear waves, each travelling in different directions, and with slightly different amplitudes. This makes it easy to loop over time, as the wavelengths of each can be chosen to line up.

This is pretty much how real water shimmer works, as wind generated waves run into walls/obstacles/shores, they get reflected in different directions. You can do this with any number of waves. With higher numbers (like 100+), the effects can be quite spectacular!
