This explains nothing. I will look into this more in depth when I have the time.

Cory Curtis says:

I can't even pay attention because of some genius' microphone constantly f***ing rubbing!

James Bond says:

the study of geometrical properties and spatial relations unaffected by the continuous change of shape or size of figures. is what topology is but if a bagel has more dough then another one the hole may be bigger so its affected by a continuous change of shape am i right? or did you just use a bad example to explain it? :D

care no says:

that deep breathing tho… seems suspicious

John Howard says:

Yeah, OK, but what about cinnamon bagels?

Higgins2001 says:

absolutely fascinating! the analogy really helped, glad they included it (i took topology in undergrad, and still barely understand the foundational concept of their research)
