I opened it no problem, but aa....

How can X2 + 13 as he says be interpreted to that image again? And why specifically that image and not any other since it is accurate?

It played fine for me and I'm not in the UK.
I'd also recommend the 3d recursions (http://3drecursions.com/) to anyone interested in such images.

Some of them have that appearance, but they are clearly visual representations of dynamical systems ..... not to me they're not :D ..... but that's what he says :)

I mean seriously, I don't really get what it's being done for, other than those who also work in and understand the math. I don't know the math, never will, so as interpretations of the math they are meaningless. They are quite nice, but any number of us could turn stuff out in LW and whatever else, and they would have equal meaning to the vast majority, I reckon.
