The autistic problem of self help

It is the fantasy that people can be told how to live.
That people cn live out of an instructions book.

There is something autistic about it.

I call it "the great divide"

There are some things that really really can improve life.
But they are divorced from the natural/normal way people live.

An opposite example is Steve Jobs work.
Computers were an autistic thing. Useful but ugly.

Steve jobs, womehow managed to marry the useful with the human, aestehtic, natural, intuitive.

Until someone manages to marry the useful,scientific with the natural human way of going aobut life, nothing is useful.  It is theoretical scientific autistic advice that nobody utilizes.

Bridging this divide is the real challenge
