      I want to attempt to try and create a generalized mapping of mathematics based upon my current knowledge of mathematics. I will be creating a thread of this after this post, this is just a little heads up. Please feel free to add to it or expand it in any way. I want to make it as detailed and as translatable as possible so that anyone can understand it. Going from beginner to expert in a matter of minutes. That is the overall goal of this project. I have probably thousands upon billions of holes in my knowledge when it comes to the math's, however I want to at least try to gain a more "graphic" and visual understanding of all of the intrinsic connections and flows that mathematics as a field has while also sharing that knowledge with others so that they can also gain a deeper understanding as well. 
      Thank you for reading.

      When he cuts the stone golem, can I say he is applying a shear force (it has no counteracting force as in support from a wall or anything like that) so am I correct in saying it is a shearing force that would be proportional to the speed of the deformation (ie as in Hooke's law)? The act of him cutting the Golem is a shearing force at any rate?

      Finally graduated magna cum laude as an MD.
      Although I have received the wonderful opportunity to specialise in neurosurgery, being a neurosurgery resident is just a dog's life I could not lead for the lengthy duration it has. Because of lots of reasons, I've decided to carry on as an aspiring future anaesthesiologist.
