Lead On! (autism)
The following web announcement referring to the good book by David Kirby and some of the awards it has won. I'm sure EVERY aspect of this book is correct and accurate for what it investigates but, It like the WHOLE of autism has absently missed the entire boat. While modern autism has basically been made and invented since Rain Man the Autism of today has been simply poured into the mold and guess what it matches and acts like just all the studies would predict. (imagine that).
Our working real life Autism population that completed the double blind experiment in autism and bridges the gap between the Savant and the Village Idiot was not taken into account and at this point in the autism chess game can't be admitted to. We take the work of Temple Grandin miles further and even write new chapters in Psychology as we figure out our never in print before thought process. It might actually be the slow motion building blocks of the mind?
Our Anthropology a double blind one, at that only absently fulfills the oldest definitions of autism when we were loners, had a pain tolerance, keen senses and often went threw life in an odd manner with the aid of our splinter skills. We tend to only represent the lower functioning 1/3 of autism cases in present times. We naturally know and realize Picture thoughts (brain-generated images-your day dreams) as our primary thoughts and have learned how to convert them to real life. Naturally no autism guru knows or appreciates what it is we do and frankly they would be a fool to admit to us, our obvious facts would obviously indicate modern autism jumped the gun too many times. The sad part is we blend in society really well most of the time we also drive and hold a traditional job and if you took our experience and condensed it Autism could be taught by 6th grade! The really sad part is just the natural unintentional misfunction of modern autism amounts to Autism treason. Trouble is our Ph d's in real life can't hold a candle to the ones of a university and the natural dooming down of all autism people in special education and now group homes has absently made even more trouble. Internal peer review from a "group of Retards" they invented will never be taken with any sincerity.
I'm sure If our Autism is ever admitted to and our Temple Grandin Style books were ever allowed to be published and our anthropology were ever figured out Mr Kirby's book and work would no longer be valid. His book is the essence of new Autism and thus new Autism would be declared invalid as well. As I say on this blog no Autism Empire or Guru will ever allow our outstanding case history to be known (if they can help it) and for sure they are not professional enough to admit to all of autism in the name of agenda free quality research. Perhaps the most damming thing of all would be, Autism the old autism of our anthropology will prove to be mostly treatable and "curable" and something different from the newest version of the condition. In effect mixing old and new aspies has skewed the many studies of autism and has hidden our best traits and might have even prevent man from learning of our pain free injuries and our different human thought process. LEAD ON Autism!

Attention-deficit disorder also has skyrocketed. And 1 in 6 children today has a learning disability. David Kirby investigated whether one of the causes of these childhood afflictions is thimerisol, a vaccine preservative that contains mercury, a well-documented neurotoxin. In the 1990s, the mercury-containing additive was injected into children far in excess of federal safety levels. Kirby told the story of stonewalling, denial and cover-up by federal regulators, medical groups and the pharmaceutical industry. And he documents covert efforts by some of those same powerful forces - along with the U.S. Congress - to grant blanket immunity for drug companies that put mercury in vaccines. Like so many scientific controversies involving complex science and big business, the topic is controversial. Kirby's careful and meticulous reporting is exemplary in its balance, accuracy and documentation.""
