How far can someone go into this field of mathematics, because I am really enjoying it a lot. Of course, I am reserving my selection of specilization until I am exposed to more mathematics. I really enjoy the abstractness that this field of maths develops. It is refreshing to do something, which to me, is a lot different than calculus.

Differential topology...was like discovering sex.

So my hope is to study complex (differential) geometry (i.e., geometry of complex manifolds)

So far, the subject in math that was the most enthralling to me is functional analysis.

dynamical systems (flow, collisionless or collisoin)

edit: oh and graph theory and 3D engine mathematics.

I prefer intellect. Intellects acquire knowledge because they have a passion for discovery and exploration and simply because they can. Nerds acquire knowledge because it's all they are good at.Aren't we all

I can never have a social, intellectual conversation with stereotypical 'nerds' because they always seem to lack good conversation skills and word formation. This is why I prefer the term intellect, we blend in with society and act like we don't care but secretly do homework in our closets.

In France, intellects are celebrities, (e.g. Jean Paul Sartre - one of my favorite philosophers).

This is of course, purely anecdotal.

a more difficult and useful exercise is to regain ones innocence.

Innocence distorts one's ability to transcend the tangible, concrete foundations of reality and expand their awareness across the plane of infinite imagination. Corrupt yourself as much as you can and you will feel an inextricable, interconnectedness between your perceptions and reality.a more difficult and useful exercise is to regain ones innocence.

Actually, I have no idea what innocence you were describing, I was focusing on the embodied consciousness and how we can disassociate and disconnect it from the usual flow of perception.

or picassos innocence in relearning to draw with the freedom and creativity

again of a child. As he put it, he could draw like raphael as a child himself, and it took him years to regain the free expression of the ordinary child.
