I don't get it. But I did notice that the image says 25 (not 15)

...but I only count 13 things labeled at the bottom.

If you Google the title of this post you'll get an explanation, if you can make any sense of it.

The fifteen great circles make up one fourth of the 60 that make up the geodesic sphere aka Buckyballs, if I'm not mistaken.

There are also 6 and 10 great circles and maybe a few others, I'm still not sure.

I just liked the picture.

I'm still learning the math.
