# About The Level of Math
I want to make normal people understand even if I write on a very
difficult topic. Also, I don't want to write sequentially so that
you don't have to read all the previous posts to understand recent
posts.
However, a bad thing happened. Yesterday, I wrote about prime idea
ls and affine varieties without any explain. I think normal people
can easily understand affine varieties if they are willing to, but
I don't think they can understand what the hell prime ideals are.
The post itself is OK, because it is more about algebra-geometry c
orrespondence.
The problem is, suppose I write about prime ideals so that they ca
n understand. I'll certainly write about the spectrum of a ring to
o. Then next day, I might write about schemes. To explain a scheme
, I have to write about a sheaf and the underlying topology. If I
proceed this, I might eventually end up explaining algebraic stack
s, topoi, and even motives.
OK, I know that's a slippery slope argument, and is a logical fall
acy. I don't think I will actually end up explaining motives, even
if I explain the spectrum of a ring. But when it comes to the lev
el of math, I think I'm not that wrong.
So, how can I find the optimal level, and keep it indefinitely? Th
at's the problem.
