I’m new to this, so permit me the ostentation of an introductory quote.

“Every man takes the limits of his vision for the limits of the world,” wrote Arthur Schopenhauer (and a citation would be welcomed); it seems, then, that you must constantly try to expand your “FOV” accordingly.

Find below a few interesting links; in accumulating these, I’ve decided that I think it’s valuable to, once in a while, just stop what you’re doing and focus upon something seemingly unrelated. Try to use the models you’ve constructed to understand the new topic to better resolve the models you’re using to think about your original problem; try to make elegant analogies. Perhaps the following links will help get you started:
