@interact causes working program to err

The following code segment works well in sagenb.com until the @interact is put in to permit varying variables a and b. Then a long error is thrown, ending with

"self.loc = (float(center[0]), float(center[1]), float(center[2])) TypeError: 'sage.symbolic.expression.Expression' object does not support indexing"

The issue is the statement found near the end that says G+=point((x,y), color='red',pointsize=4) If that statement is commented out, then it runs again, although and of course the desired plot is not obtained. Why? What can i do about it?
Clearly you won't let me show you by uploading the file. I am posting what i can.

tried to improve formatting -- are the indentations correct?
