Young Mr Perelman:
Here is a much more flattering pic of him:
Its interesting that once he discovered how academia was corrupt he bowed out:http://english.pravda.ru/society/stories/25-03-2010/112699-grigory_perelman-0/
So he's now isolated from people who would be on his level.
But this is not the first time we have seen this. Its assumed that mathematicians just grow old and go nuts due to their extremely high intelligence. The math genius from 'A Beautiful Mind', if you research his case of course eventually you will find that he did some work for covert agencies or heavies..then conveniently loses his mind, like every INconvenient person tends to. Also people can be very competitive and jealous. I suspect that the minute you really bloom into the fringes of what is supposed to be true, untrue, possible or impossible-unsolvable or unknowable that competitors are jealous as hell and the Man gets very nervous and yer a threat.
I just wonder if our anti-hero is playing it safe..which is the 'smart' thing to do really. I hope he has not experienced a similar fate to we who read this blog and suffer daily.
I solely respect his decision. His story somehow made me feel validated in what I was doing as well as refusing to give into the system. Perhaps our friend is smarter in many things he does than the mainstream seems to see.
As of posting this I realized that what I have done is the last thing he probably wants. These are pics taken of him outside etc. I dont approve of messing with this guy's privacy. These pics are unkind especially the ones taken of him without his permission where he looks surprised. I wont publish those here.
These are bad enough:
If you want to reward this man give him his privacy...and respect.
