I’m really not sure what you mean. X is just a placeholder for exploitable audio, text, and video. Think of it as an X in the sense of algebraic formulas. We also have Y’s and probably Z’s for the same reason. So, am I missing something or?

I don’t think you are. X is a placeholder, simple as. It’s not a meme.

X was selected to be a placeholder for historical reasons. The first recorded usage of X as an algebraic variable was by Descartes in 1637, and it has since become a general placeholder.
