John Nash/A Beautiful Mind
- View Source
In the film, A Beautiful Mind,
John Nash's wife, after having faced
the possible drowning of her child and herself
being shot by John says,
"I need to know that
a miracle is possible".
In his hopelesness
and desperation, and suffering,
John asks his wife, "What is real?"
She responds, "I'll tell you what is real.
THIS." She takes his hand and places it on her heart
and her hand on his heart. She looks directly
into his eyes.
It is a alcheimical, transcendant moment, devoid of
logic and reason.
After a while, one little step at a time,
John becomes able to face his demons
and be able to function peacefully
in the world again.
In a speech he makes upon receiving
the Nobel Prize for Economic Science
What truly is logic?
Who decides reason?
My quest has taken me to the physical,
the metaphysical, the delusional....
I made the most important discovery
of my career -- of my Life:
It is only in the mysterious equations of love
that any logic or reason can be found

No longer exists the need to makes sense of experiences
and ascribe meaning or cause
when Mind <--------> Heart becomes One
and then manifests into Will
