David Orban’s interview with John Nash

March 23, 2010

DAVID ORBAN | During this conversation, John Nash (profiled in the movie “Beautiful Mind”) insisted for a while that change having been always present would not represent anything new today. Who was I to convince him of the contrary? I told him the example of heating water: nothing changes for a long time but temperature. Then, unexpectedly, the same change that from 85 C to 95 C did nothing much, brings a big surprise as temperature changes from 95 C to 105 C! This seemed to change his mind.
