I will talk about a beautiful conjecture of Berge that seeks to classify all the ways to produce the simplest 3-manifolds by the simplest 3-dimensional topological operation. I will focus on the solution of the realization problem, a derivative of the Berge conjecture, which describes exactly which 3-manifolds you can get.
