Yes, I do believe that some who are considered 'geniuses' do seem to be in that realm, especially when you read about their lives Peter Mohylsky.  'Moving to the beat of a different drummer' isn't that bad, because that is how many unique and beautiful things in the Arts are created.

Madness has been defined in different ways over the centuries, sometimes to eliminate or "neutralize" those who think differently.
