It may seem a lot to digest at first, but take your time and use it as a reference whenever you're looking for an answer regarding a spreading topic.

You may note that for a start we have left out more complex spreading scenarios. Still, if one gets a good understanding of those basics all further dimensions should be much easier to grasp. Feedback welcome.
