"the bad voice"
John Nash was a mid 1900's mathematician
He developed schizophrenia with hallucinations and delusions.
A Beautiful Mind attempts to capture his battle with his illness and the face of schizophrenia In "A Beautiful Mind" Nash thinks he is breaking codes for the Pentagon under Agent Parcher
His paranoia manifests as a foreign threat like the Soviets
Choosing between his sanity and family or his country
He is institutionalized and forced to confront his delusions and reality
Aides him throughout "A Beautiful Mind"
Second family (like brothers)
Why did the director make these changes? To create a patriotic spirit
Audience empathy and support
Create sympathy for Nash
A patriotic delusion or incoherent ramblings?

Wasn't specifically terrified of the Soviet threat
Dramatized to amplify sympathy and empathy
