Question 629: Delicious and round, yet squared

A guest question by one of our regulars, Pi.R.Square.Enjoy

Touted as the most complex crop circle ever found in Britain, the pattern appeared earlier this month near Barbury Castle, an Iron Age hill fort above the village of Wroughton in Wiltshire. 
Initially, crop circle enthusiasts were stumped as to its meaning and even a number of experts said it was 'mind-boggling'.
Dismissed in mid 2008 as being unsolveable, retired astrophysicist Mike Reed put 2 and 2 together to finally arrive upon the answer.
Upon having solved it, he produced a fractal of the form as described

"The little dot near the centre is the decimal point. The code is based on ten angular segments, with the radial jumps being the indicator of each segment. Starting at the centre and counting the number of one-tenth segments in each section contained by the change in radius clearly shows the values of the first 10 of __X___"

ID what the crop circle shows.
