The return of an obsession

I went to bed last night thinking about the relations between complex analysis and geometry, and woke this morning still obsessed with the relations.  Where do their radically elementary concepts meet?  In building their theories into higher towers upon elementary foundations, how do they stay connected, two worlds with a bridge between them?

To me, answering questions like the above, seem a noble act of intellect and imagination–something creative even if the study has been done before by far greater minds than mine.

This is the second time this year this obsession has overwhelmed me.  I suspect I have a secret desire to escape the mundane that I cannot satisfy, or not yet have tried hard enough to satisfy.
