If you have a machine with a UTF-8 terminal and a recent-ish Perl (tested on Perl 5.10 + Mac OS X 10.6), you can play along at home by running:

    perl -e '$ |= 1; binmode(STDOUT, ":utf8"); while (1) { print chr(9585.5 + rand()); select(undef, undef, undef, 0.01); }'

While interesting, it isn't the same. I'm not sure what, exactly, the difference is, but I don't get the feeling of "labyrinth". Instead, I get the feeling of a bunch of similar glyphs.

Try changing the 0.01 at the end to 0.001 or lower.

This was the most beautiful one for me: http://cl.ly/image/3y0I2J2q421E

That gives me a gentle optical illusion - there's a sort of 3d effect going on and I can't tell which way is up or out or in or down.
