under uncertainty. I wanted to dig deeper on some of the more
technical concepts he alluded too, so last year I explored a few
textbooks on probability theory.
I was surprised with how elegant the field was. The most inspiring
idea to me was how the originators interpreted probability through
set theory. Not only is it a beautiful way to look at things, but by

theory, and badabing badaboom they had a whole field’s worth of
