While the proof of the existence of this universal function is very subtle, there is a relatively easy way to get a picture of how complicated it looks.

First we graph a high iterate of the logistic map with a superstable 2-cycle. | |

Next we graph a high iterate of the logistic map with a superstable 4-cycle, | |

and a high iterate of the logistic map with a superstable 8-cycle. | |

Finally, we give a hint of the fractal nature of the universal function. |
