Christopher's autism allows him to think "outside of the box." He sees the world with connections that non-autistic people often miss. He spends his mental energy on ideas that he cares about. He is ambitious and wants to be a scientist. He is interested in the stars and science and the universe and by the end of the novel manages to take his A-level in maths. He also has a unique empathy to animals. He also sees past the social nuances of society, they just don't register with him, to actually see truth.
