[dwpotjwt] Spirals on spirals

Draw a line in 3D space.  Draw a helix around that line.  Draw another thinner helix around the first helix.  Repeat.  Probably related to Fourier transform.

Wrap a logarithmic spiral around a cone.  Repeat the previous construction, with the helices getting thinner as it approaches the apex of the cone.  Arc length might remain finite.
