I have always been really confused by Category Theory and every time I've tried to read up on its basics I've bounced off it pretty hard.
Last week I found this video called "A Sensible Introduction to Category Theory" and this is the first time categories have ever made any sense to me:https://youtu.be/yAi3XWCBkDo
I wrote a Cohost post about my Interpretation of the video:https://cohost.org/mcc/post/75444-this-video-is-the-on
Still not sure I LIKE any of this but I feel like I at least can interpret the Wikipedia pages now!

@hillexed It's beautiful... now we just need to add a third dimension and we can describe groupoids
@mcc @hillexed what, these guys?
