Have you ever asked yourself why gifted people in some life situations can be so helpless, and why people with handicaps can be so brilliant?
Rudolf Steiner's indications about how health originates offer an exciting answer. Health is not a continuous state, it is an oscillating search for balance between opposing poles. If one can manage to keep finding the mid-point between the extreme polarities, one remains healthy. If one succeeds in oscillating between the two poles across the middle, exploiting all the possibilities, then one is extremely healthy, resilient and flexible.
Here the example of autism spectrum disorder will be used to elucidate the effect of polarized one-sidedness in the form of giftedness or a handicap.
Notice how these opposites feel in you! Do you swing evenly between the poles, or more in one direction? How strongly do you oscillate to one side? A little, clearly one-sidedly, or even extremely one-sidedly?
These are the characteristics:“
„Tense - awake - wants to do everything exactly - cannot take a break - has difficulty falling asleep - can only eat familiar things
Or the opposite: too relaxed - sleepy - would rather do nothing - would like to eat and sleep a lot - is almost always taking a break.“
