A beautiful mind...or not?

Ways of thinking...a beautiful mind  or not?On the train this morning i was thinking about John Nash,. He was the Mathematician who was killed a few days ago in a car crash in the USA. He was suffering from a paranoid psychosis when he produced his contribution to Games Theory. it was this branch of Games Theory that contributed most to America`s outlook during the Cold War and has probably in turn added to the nature of globalisation in the last 30 years. Is it not interesting that an academic suffering from a paranoid psychosis ( Watch Russell Crowe in the film A Beautiful Mind ). And that this branch of mathematics created in paranoia serves a superpower in the state of collective psychosis.and paranoia. Does our sense of how the world works reflect our inner psychological state
