Like many of you science freaks, I am a great admirer of Sir Isaac Newton and I can say with certainty that Isaac Newton never suffered a nervous breakdown after his friendship came to an end with the Swiss Mathematician – Nicolas Fatio de Duillier but it is a conspiracy against him to portray him as a homosexual. Many of the admirers of Isaac Newton whom I personally know do so in order to portray Isaac Newton as a great friend and human being along with being a great genius. I personally believe that Isaac Newton was too strong a human being to have a nervous breakdown due to any event and the breakup of his friendship with the Swiss Mathematician Nicolas Fatio de Duillier is a very petty event for such a task.
I have studied every piece that I could find about Nicolas Fatio de Duillier and Isaac Newton’s friendship. I personally believe that the friendship between Nicolas Fatio de Duillier and Isaac Newton deteriorated because of their differing religious views; Yes, their differing scientific views were definitely a part of their friendship getting broken but the main and vital role was played by their differing religious views.
I also believe that many of the scientists could have surpassed Sir Isaac Newton if they followed chastity just like himself. There is no denying that the greatness of Sir Isaac Newton, Nikola Tesla and Stephen Hawking is their practice of chastity. Even involuntarily celibacy/chastity can provide you with huge rewards and Stephen Hawking is just one example.
Another personal observation about Isaac Newton that I made is that he didn’t hate farming but he felt that he was too good for the same.
