It’s useful to think about mathematics as a whole as a giant jigsaw puzzle, in which no one knows what the final image is going to look like. Solving this puzzle is a collective enterprise of thousands of people. They work in groups: here are the algebraists laboring over their part of the puzzle, here are the number theorists, here are the geometers, and so on. Each group has been able to create a small “island” of the big picture, but through most of the history of mathematics, it has been hard to see how these little islands will ever join up. As a result, most people work on expanding those islands of the puzzle. Every once in a while, however, someone will come who will see how to connect the islands. When this happens, important traits of the big picture emerge, and this gives a new meaning to the individual fields.
