my brain is saved!!

Several people have contacted me with ideas about the picture that was making me crazy a few days ago. I got some quick and dirty responses from Tim, Alex and Noelle. I've also been emailing back and forth with Tom, considering various hypotheses. And finally, someone has enough photoshop savvy to actually duplicate the effect. (Somehow, it doesn't hurt my brain as much with the spiral centered instead of skewed.) However, he's decided to be rather mysterious about it. The only clue he gives is that he did not create the effect with mirrors. (Sorry, Noelle.)

Spill the beans, Jim. How did you do it?
