Well, I mean, a spline is just sort of a function that interpolates between a
set of control points.   You have to generate the control points somehow....

When you can just do it all in one fell swoop with a single function...  or an
algorithmic/programmatic loop...

Glad it's working well.   Maybe you can speed up the generation of the spiral as
it gets bigger to compensate for the "slowing down" - the longer legs of the
edges.  Sorta give it the same angular velocity for the whole animation.
