We report a startling mosaic-like organization of stability phases found in the low-frequency limit of a driven Brusselator. Such phases correspond to periodic oscillations having a constant number of spikes per period. The mosaic is free from chaotic oscillations and is formed by an apparently infinite cascade of oscillations whose number of spikes grow without bound. Wide windows free from chaos but supporting unbounded quantities of complex oscillations are potentially of interest to operate driven oscillators such as lasers, electronic circuits, and biochemical pacemakers.
