A Young Author’s Illustrated Primer (to Category Theory) · 8:36am January 2nd

Two months ago.

I'm realizing that this might be too abstract a tool to expect anyone to get it after a blog series, or even after several months of study.

It's a language for describing things more conducive to intuitive reasoning. The problem is that if I apply it to anything, everyone's first reaction is going to be that I just retrofitted the solution (the language) to the example, regardless of whether or not such a belief even makes sense in this context.

For any other kind of tool, that might be a legitimate counter. Except people think in terms of the languages they know, and this particular language is the one letting me come up with the examples I put down here. You can't read my mind though, so to you it just looks like a bunch of random examples that I happen to describe with this funny language.

I'm rambling. I suspect my approach is not the right one.

One month ago.

Just enough to stalk them and avoid retaliation.

Clearly you know all the cool kids.
