NASH DIES UNDER CLOUD
By Ed Gauthier
The "taxi accident" death the day before yesterday of both genius mathematician John Nash and his loyal wife Alicia contained several elements that were mighty darn fishy. Such as:
A rerouted flight plan making their plane early to the airport.
A limo service that refused to pick them up earlier than previously scheduled.
An erratically-driving foreign cab driver whom they had to hire to replace the limo.
Said driver had only worked in the cab driving business for a grand total of two weeks.
A set of seat belts were in the cab for the driver who survived the crash he caused.
But no seat belts were in the cab for the Nashes in back, who did not survive.
(No doubt said driver will soon vanish from the picture, if not also the country.)
Nash, 86, creator of the concept known as the Nash Equilibrium, was the inspiration for the 2002 film A Beautiful Mind, which starred Russell Crowe, and was directed by Ron Howard.
Math wizard Nash had said that for many years that he believed that outer space aliens, and/or secret government forces were "out to get" him. They were not happy that early on in his career he chose to turn his back on them, after they had said they wanted to recruit him in helping to save the world.
By hearing their voices in his head (mental telepathy), Nash had said he became convinced that they would be communicating with him further via messages they placed within the pages of the New York Times.
Other stories have also mentioned a few more periodicals containing such messages - including the magazines Life, and Newsweek, which are both published in New York, the area where Nash lived.
Said alien/secret government theory would fit together if Nash, who was born in West Virginia, therefore died in either his adopted hometown (since 1948) of New Jersey (where his alma mater Princeton is located) or its next door neighbor state New York. Apparently, the aliens chose NJ. Theory confirmed.
Of course, a full treatment involving this alien sub plot was found to be too "offbeat" and "distracting" for the Beautiful Mind film, and although some scenes had been shot dealing with the subject, that material ended up on the cutting room floor.
Audiences were left with only "unexplained voices," which they were to assume were just part of some temporary - schizophrenia or paranoia-related - mental problem on his part.
So did certain high level forces - even aliens - want Nash dead? We may never know.
Nash was also one of those many folk who spoke very highly of the numeral 23, calling it his "favorite prime number." That's right - he and his wife of course died in the afore mentioned crash on the 23rd.
Readers are advised to stay tuned for future oddities in the news regarding this very suspicious scenario.
