Maths in Europe: John Conway

Card Colm Mulcahy, an irish mathematician and John Conway's friend, on 11 april 2020 published on twitter the news of the death of Conway. His source was a close associate of his and confirmed by the family.
I written a little post in his honour on Maths in Europe, a ahort article about the free will theorem.
The theorem was proposed by Conway with Simon Kochen, inspired by the question about the interpretation of quantum mechanics. The statement is:
