What if you were planting the tree and creating the branches as you learned?

This is similar to my perspective. Knowledge is like a tree with
infinite branches and leaves. You start at the trunk and work your way
up. Generally people follow certain branches only, some follow certain
branches, but look around to see what the other branches look like. Many
of the brnaches touch other branches, but all are part of the same tree.
