A definition of the concept of a multidimensional spiralling manifold is studied. Manifolds of this type are shown to occur as invariant manifolds of flows containing hyperbolic restpoints with a pair of complex conjugate eigenvalues. It is shown that spiralling can be a mechanism for producing intersections of invariant manifolds.
