A Beautiful Mind Saying Goodbye to What Cannot Be True
A Beautiful Mind, the book by Sylvia Nasar made into an award-winning movie by Ron Howard, depicted the life of John Nash, a mathematical genius that became psychotic. By “skillful means,” Nash observed several perceived imaginary “characters,” noticing that their very existence could not be real since “they” never aged. In this moment, Nash briefly awakens from his psychosis. Recognizing the insanity present is already a beginning of some sanity.
