Last night, I was struggling to sleep because of the amount of information, the amount of research, that goes into studying cancer. It’s quite disconcerting. It’s also a bit chicken and egg really.

Perhaps at the moment I’m coming to terms with the lack of linearity in the subject. There is so much to do. There is so much unknown.

I tried to articulate what goes into cancer in the form of a mind map. I also wanted to consider a few poignant questions to contribute toward some sort of one-to-two-dimensional linearity that I am comfortable with.

Cancer is a multi-dimensional disease. However, so as to not overwhelm myself and any other layperson, I thought we could build our understanding from bottom up… I haven’t quite worked out how yet.
