insight

Here is my best explanation:

'understanding' is the definition.
(insight is a kind of understanding)

'current things in variety' is the wordplay.
'current' becomes 'i' (symbol for electric current).
'in variety' indicates anagramming the letters (I've seen this in other clues).
'things' with letters rearranged gives 'nsight'.
'i'+'nsight'='INSIGHT'

'of' is the link.
