SDO Spinning Plasma

SDO Spinning Plasma is seen here in this extended movie I have created from a sequence of Helioviewer movies. This is why I really like opacity blended Helioviewer movies.
How many states of Plasma are there?
Why are some in motion and others stay in globule like forms?
Why did the spinning start?
I hope some one is writing a good book that explains this stuff.
The upload video compression has affected the quality, I'll try a different upload point and link to it soon. Try this link,

Make your own version at Helioviewer, it will look much better.
