Special colloquium Faltings' almost purity theorem asserts that, in p-adic geometry, things become simpler when passing to certain highly ramified, largely non-geometric, coverings. The coverings in question are somewhat akin to covering an interval by a Cantor set. I will show how embracing this idea has led us (with Dustin Clausen) to recast the basic notions of topology, leading to a better setup in which to do algebra with topological groups.
