If the molecules/atoms of a solid object vibrate quickly enough, would the way a human eye perceives that object be changed? Would the object appear to "flicker" or have almost a transparent look to it? I know with a tuning fork there is a change but I am thinking of a faster vibration.
Also, would this type of vibration cause any negative effects to the object? What if the object was living? If you took an animals (No, I am not experimenting on any) and somehow caused the molecules in it's body to vibrate at an extremely high rate, assuming it didn't die for one reason or another, would the vibrations cause increased aging or some other noticeable effect(s)?
