I’m quite convinced that all kind of “stars” in human knowledge or activities are someway “obsessed” about their activity.
From Nobel prizes to sports champions to music geniuses and so on: people which spends all of their time and efforts in making perfect their “art” and bringing it beyond known limits.
So I strongly agree that people with some sort of “spectrum” could add something new and important to a renaissance.
I confess it also scares me a little: thinking that all big steps in humanity’s history and arts are brought by obsessed people doesn’t make me feel comfortable. I consider myself quite an average person and I don’t really like being obsessed by anything.
That’s why there’s no chance that I can contribute significantly in any kind of renaissance!
