New Kind of CA - Fractal Snowflake Growth

This may look like cellular automata, but it is not. It is based on a different approach that I came up with recently.

If you'll notice, the patterns cycle through 8 phases that are all the same type of pattern but they get larger and more intricate as they grow.

This method uses the same kind of rules that I based on another video of mine which shows a Sierpinski Triangle being created (except that I used a hexagonal surface for the snowflake one whereas I used a normal square grid for the triangle one): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIg-dLFkJxE (re-uploaded an easier to see version)

Has anyone seen growth like this before?
