One of my awesome students asked me today, “What’s your subject?”
We were discussing about how learning happens best when interest is high.
The thing that gets you the most excited… that’s your subject!
Well I reckoned my answer wasn’t going to be satisfactory, but I told her, “My subject is everything.”
Because no matter where you start, all knowledge is connected. Let’s start somewhere nice and safe – with the sciences: Biology, Chemistry and Physics. (Finally, we are in the generation that will see all the sciences merge into a unified subject.)
As you expand your knowledge, you begin to see inter connections and relations between fields of expertise. Knowledge loops get created when you expand your mental maps. E.g.
Biology directly connects with Psychology which directly links with Politics then Economics – Philosophy – Art – Physics – Chemistry and back to Biology.
Maths – Logic – Linguistics – Communication – Commerce – Statistics – Maths
History – Culture – Anthropology – Geography – Chemistry – Materials Science – Physics – Art – History
What field of knowledge becomes encompassed by your areas of interest? Can you create your own knowledge loops?

“The more you know, the easier it is to know more”, says physicist Tom Campbell;
