I need the full text of that voiceover, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Help me, monkeys!

Curious George A while back I saw a link on Reddit (I think) to a picture that was a map of various mathematical objects. In the center of that map was a group of connected boxes labeled "Integers", "Rational Numbers", "Real Numbers", "Complex Numbers" and a circle around them going to a note that said "You are here". The rest of the map outside the circle were more esoteric mathematical objects and their relationships showed by linking lines, as well as their links to the "YAH" group. Well now I can't find that. Can a million monkeys with keyboards bang out the url or google search terms I can use to find that again? more inside
