motivation for sheaves, cohomology and higher stacks in nLab

The following is (supposed to be) a pedagogical motivation of the concepts sheaf, stack, infinity-stack and higher topos theory. It assumes only that the reader has a working knowledge of topological spaces and aims to provide from that an intuitive but useful idea of the relevance of the circle of ideas of categories and sheaves, cohomology, sheaf cohomology and a bit of higher topos theory.
