860 Million Reasons for an Autism Season
The following quoted clip was from an online Autism newsletter,
IF theyAdmit to Us the Game is Over! Autism might be figured out!
""Consider this: There is a bill making its way through Congress, The Combating Autism Act, which would authorize $860 million in federal funds over five years for autism screening, intervention, education and research -- including a doubling of autism funding at NIH. It is a landmark piece of bipartisan legislation, crafted with great care by co-sponsors Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) and Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT). The bill has been endorsed by every major autism organization in America (no mean feat in itself) and is being championed -- in person and on The Hill -- by such influential citizens as NBC President Bob Wright and his wife Suzanne, founders of Autism Speaks, and Deirdre Imus, a leading fighter for the environmental health of all children and wife of the sharp-tongued host of the morning airwaves.

FROM RICH Shull, Author Autism Pre Rain Man Autism
I am sorry to be a wet blanket and put a damper on all of this autism "fun" but the facts remain. If ALL of Autism were admitted to there is a good chance Modern Autism as we know it would cave in on itself. There are least 860 million reasons and a few professional reputations and few ego's at stake so, it is best NOT TO look backwards.
I am author of the book Autism Pre Rain Man Autism and my book Builds upon Thinking in Pictures by Temple Grandin. It tells of our Completed Autism Experience. More importantly it tells of an Autism Anthropology that spans EVERY generation from the very youngest to the oldest senior citizen in Autism. We all have done double blind experiments in Autism and have very similar results. We have mostly earned a 'normal life' most of us are in the real world and have a normal job of sometype, Most of us drive, many of us excel in our fields and we have even fathered the computer with the efforts of Alan Turing (1912-1954).
As we meet online we discover we all share the same milestones in Autism Development we done the same steps in Picture thought development and we all came up with a type of human thought process that has never been in a text book before. Modern Autism KNEW us well some years ago and we were welcomed for a short few weeks until they discovered our Anthropology only seems to include about 1/3 of everyone diagnosed with autism. In our unique situation people form all over Autism seek us out looking for support for GAY autism. Quite a few meeting us both young people that have had the works Autism Wise and older folks never having been diagnosed all know each other since we all Think in Pictures , (Autism as we know It), have the keen senses, and many of us have discovered we have the Autism Pain Tolerance. (the hard way). We tend to meet the very oldest strictest definition of autism before the Rain Man era. Our Figured out Autism explains everything from a Savant to Einstein to dyslexia. Have we discovered the slow motion building blocks, the very basic steps of the human mind?
Many modern Aspies that find us online are defiantly Gay thus the reason they sought us out, looking for Gay Support for Autism. Quite a few of them don't have a clue to Picture thought and tell us we are full of something, they feel pain in the traditional way, and seem not to have the keen senses or a splinter skill in their life. Still SOME modern Aspies that find us THRIVE upon meeting us they hear of our Picture thoughts, their picture thoughts and they know them as their primary thought process. Like us they were doing their own double blind self taught picture thought experience. Once we share a few trade secrets they bloom! These people have the Pain Tolerance, and splinter skill and thrive despite the ABA and the Diets and all the other good deeds of modern Autism.
What we have done, figured out our Picture thoughts, has never been in a text book of any type before. It was a double blind experience that rendered our success. Sadly, we don't include all of autism or the Autism Powers would still like us. Autism Publishers will not touch our Temple Grandin style books, I published mine on my own. (they loved it at one time) Our Picture thoughts are INVISIBLE to anyone else and our Brain generated images we use to think with turn OFF our optic vision (glazed spaced out look) and we have to read and translate our Autism Thoughts and convert them to real thoughts. We add many more types of Picture thoughts to Autism beyond the very simple ones Temple wrote about.
Our working Figured Out Autism is not at all welcome news in autism circles we unintentionally deflate the Rain Man Era Autism. There are at least 860 million reasons to research autism and naturally since no one in Autism has had autism thoughts like we know them there is no experience for them to even know what we have done. We have been trying to get in autism conventions for years on end now and are blacklisted. Even the very best of autism research is on the wrong floor of the parking garage to ever figure out what we have done. Our worldwide only meeting on the Web anthropology (a first in human history)? has united all of us and allowed us to compare notes on our autism. No matter where we are from or the languages we speak the Autism is still the same, we all share the same milestones in development and often the same complete version of Autism. However, Rain Man has spoken and no matter what we have done or how well we have done it we have to get squished with the power and glory of Modern Autism that has no room for our working past.
Finally, having to admit to us will cripple modern autism (unintentionally) and also answer lots of questions Mankind needs answered. If we are right, and Autism is simply the slow motion step-by-step building blocks of the human mind all figured out, we are on to something Modern Autism doesn't seem to want to know about? It could be bad for their business. Please Urge the Autism Society to at least let us in the door of their convention.
