It worked! That is really cool.

I half-thought that the solution might be to simply scale each successive spiral
slightly larger. But instead, it looks like each spiral begins (in the center)
at 120-degree rotations from each other. Great! I imagine that *more* than 3
colors could be used with the same technique, by simply dividing-up the
rotations differently (and making the spirals appropriately thinner, maybe.)
Like, 6 spirals-colors would use 360/6 rotation adjustments.
