      15 minutes into this I'd thought I'd share it here in with my friends:

      Oh how I wish to defeat this demon of laziness. The bias of the mind which prevents me from seeing the beauty of the world. That inner that says, "you do not need to learn, for it is the games of those more keen to it than you. Sleep for all of eternity. rest now child for it is meant only for those chosen to defy god. To pluck from his apple of reason. You wish not to defy the infinitely all knowable do you." Oh but I do, I wish to grasp the apple and bite at its core. To give up my mere existence to view the world as not just sheets of paper but as intricate systems, oozing with the beyond infinitely unknowable. I will not listen to you demon or angel or whatever creature you may claim to be from some delusion of myself and of man. For I know that in any sense I will die. And even if I die, I would prefer to look onto the world laying on my back resting upon the shoulders of giants than sit atop a tower of my own mere delusion.

      Mathematics is the sheet upon which any universe may be displayed.

      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?
