There is a peculiar phenomenon that probably has a name but I don't know what to call it. If you do, please respond here. It revolves around people who are famous or highly skilled at a particular thing, so much so that the thing becomes who they are. Sports player. Artist. Artisan. Orator. Whatever. One day they wake up and discover they are losing the sense or ability most critical to their skill. Beethoven became deaf. Cassatt, O'Keeffe, Monet, Degas, Da Vinci and Rembrandt all lost at least some of their sight. Pianists suffer wrist problems. There are a thousand examples. It reminds me of the stradivarius problem where professional musicians leave their Stradivariuses in a taxis https://www.classicfm.com/discover-music/stradivarius-left-in-taxis-and-trains/ The subconscious mind finding a way to do what it wants or avoid doing what it doesn't. Do you know of other examples of this? Is there a name for it? Thank you!
