After hearing the story of John Nash and other genius like Einstein and Duboise, I ask is there a thing as a beautiful mind or is it really just crazy by any other name? John Nash was a genius but he was arrogant and inflexible.Are most super smart people crazy because they have a hard time fitting in with larger society?

In this story of beautiful mind, it is associated that he is having a schizophrenia. A disorder in his mind. There are times that those super smart person wanted to be isolated in just one corner. They have hard time associate with other people.

Super smart people live in different planes of existence. Eistein was labeled as mentally retarded by early teachers and was bored with school. Only a little later with strong family backing and an environment to explore and grow was he able to develop. John Nash succeeded at the academia game only to lose himself in delusionalism. Words, angles and ways become familar to super smart people where the layman calls it folly. It is much like the movie John nash able to the geometric shapes in the tie of a future friend in the rays of the sun. Only someone with a beautiful mind could have seen that.
