Abstract: In my talk I will present my personal views on the area around my research; I have been studying algebraic varieties through rational curves on them. I was first interested in a special problem called the Hartshorne Conjecture, and when I solved it I encountered a notion called an extremal ray as a biproduct, through which I got attracted to the biregular classification and the minimal model program, and furthermore to a general theory of higher dimensional birational classification. I will present them to a wider audience including algebraic geometers.
