We show that under repeated differentiation, the zeros of the Selberg $\Xi$-function become more evenly spaced out, but with some scaling towards the origin. We do this by showing the high derivatives of the $\Xi$-function converge to the cosine function, and this is achieved by expressing a product of Gamma functions as a single Fourier transform.
