I don't know how it registers your brainwaves, but it is great that we can manipulate these things.

the " spin " is simply the image file changing the displayed image from one to the next , at a set speed - and in a calculated sequence
the " animation " in this case is made up of 34 individual images , comprising the different ` poses `
leave it alone for 4 hours - as i have and it changes direction a total of 9 times
so much for psychic powers
PS - i can predict that several people will jump on this reply and claim that they really can make changes happen
well - my answer is :
a - you are deluded
b- you are lying
an animated gif is simply a sequence of image changes and a refresh rate - it can be programmed to change
if you really beleve that you have the power to alter it - try the same tactic with another animated gif selected @ random from the web
if you have the pwer to change the instruction set in one file , you should be able to do it with any file
heck - throw away you KB and mouse and control the computer by the power of your mind
what amazes me is the psychology of such memes and peoples willingness to believe in them
