How to make a spiral torus as shown below?

I do know how to make various spirals in Blender, but this one escapes me and makes my head spin (forgive the pun). I believe it consists of several torus spirals put together and just spins around Z axis, creating an optical illusion. I tried twisting a torus spiral in Blender but it looks different. Perhaps this can only be made by script. It's a good puzzle.

    $\begingroup$ Goes the other way to the slinky like torus spiral. Theoretically these two answers loxodrome on sphere and heart mesh can be combined. To create a loxodrome on a torus. $\endgroup$ – batFINGER May 15 '19 at 13:32
