This is very interesting. They both married their cousins, just like Edgar Allen Poe. Your thesis makes me wonder if insanity is a step before or after genius. Darwin’s case is kind of sad because he did not know this biological closeness would cause problems at first. Einstein, in the other hand, was very strict. He fell in lobe with someone who accepted his eccentric nature. Thanks for sharing their stories. Well done 💯
