Spinning our Anthropology
Autism's unstudied anthropology, has no need to spin our issues or our causes as the facts and long term history speak for itself: providing anyone will listen. As we emerge from this long term double blind autism experiment where we COMPLETED the Autism Experience and where many of us became proficient picture thinkers we are looking down the barrel of the gun of the Mighty Autism Empire.(( Humor) and the sign says Rabbit season and Elemr Fudd is ready to shoot) Modern Autism would be and was at one time years ago intrigued with us. Then they discovered we did too much and our autism was not the autism they were pushing. Once we were determined to be too far out of line with the Rain Man Autism of today they have tired to keep us buried ever since. Something like one of the biggest scandals Washington, DC is noted for.
We can overcome the PEER review autism process if people in the spectrum insist on their tax dollars and donations to Autism Causes be spent wisely and all sides of the issue are accounted for. We don't hold all the autism answers and probably will make more questions than we can answer, but we DO have living high functioning anthropology of people that think in Pictures, have super keen senses and pain free injuries. That is either True Science Fiction or Autism that is all figured out. We don't know of anyone from autism circles that have ever known us our thoughts or our keen senses or Our Pain Free injuries. Without our inside information they are at a loss.
Research and Peer review is designed to work only from within and it has it good points and bad points. The worst one is some theory or point of view becomes "The View" and there is no longer room for anything other than the party line. No one in Autism was ever EXPECTING to meet anyone from with in the spectrum that ever figured out autism so naturally we are 'troublemakers' certainly NOT autistic. Again no one in the research spectrum thinks in Pictures or has figured out Autism. I think they know we are here and on to something and it is easier to keep us quiet than to admit they might have missed a few things. Just who would believe a group of retards could ever figure out their own conditions? Temple Grandin even spelled it out for them in her work Thinking in Pictures and today they don't realize the entire Autism process is built on her ideals. We even take them miles further!
It seems to be a crime that Mankind's last living anthropology and all of our secrets and insight into a different kind of man-remains hidden. I wonder if the Autism researcher would rather keep their comfortable jobs than ever worry that someday they might have Cancer and might be in horrible pain. Then they might have wished they had figured out our pain tolerance. The politic$ and the money of modern autism can't afford us now. We are the most dangerous threat to the Autism empire on earth. Was it Mark Twain that said we have the best government money can buy? I'll amend that to say we have the worst autism research government money can afford. As I have said before no empire will allow itself to be crippled with a view they do not appreciate or didn't invent on their own.
I bet our pain tolerance alone would open up new pages in research, I wonder how many learing/education issues are related to our picture thoughts? I wonder how many inventions Aspies have tucked away in their picture thoughts? I wonder just how many simply out grew their autism, in their own blind autism experience? Perhaps the Aspie of time gone by, have filtered into life at large like we did. I meet 70, 80 year olds that display the logical conclusion to Picture Thoughts-if they lived their entire life ignorant of autism like we nearly did. A modern researcher will never find them or us as one they are not looking for us and two they don't know what to look for. They might find us and know us a nerd, village idiot or some other strange character. We probably work at the country club and, for sure, don't have a membership there.
