The Flat Earth
To my Dear Readers and parents of someone in the autism spectrum.
I know many of you read these posts on this blog and fume and think how outrageous! Just how can a "***" like that or a number of them have done so good at over coming Autism? Just how can all the experts of autism be so off? We have done what we are supposed to have done and yet are kids are not doing a real life? Were straddled with behavior challenges and diets and advise from all sides none of which seems to work. We live and think Autism and IEP"s and Autism this and that and if all the people put faith in are the experts we think they are why shouldn't we follow their advise? Just what is this Anthropology of High functioning people all about? Have our kids been absently cheated?
To answer that and spread a ray of hope, remember Autism was invented for the most part and all it needs is a foundation that our Anthropology offers. While Modern Autism was looking naturally "east and west" we were doing our double blind experience looking "north and south." The Essence of a double blind experience is NO ONE knows anything about what they were doing. We didn't know we were figuring out autism as generations before us have done as well, and Modern Autism wasn't aware of what we were doing right under their nose. The results are also Double-blind and our real to life functioning autism where most of us pull off the trick of normal to some degree, totally flies in the face of New modern Autism.
We can see from inside point of view Modern Autism has got a hold of the wrong end of the stick and if they only knew the reason for our behavior and understood our never in print before thought process Autism could be taught by 6th grade. I predict we could take many of our group home modern day residents and go back and teach them their basic Autism and social skills as we have learned them and WALLA we would do the "impossible." The whole trouble with Autism is our very basic, basics and the how and why we think with pictures has never been in a text book before. Temples book is the very starting stages of Autism Thoughts, WE BUILD On her work. Autism thoughts are invisible to you, except for perhaps our gazed look. Even if not everyone Thinks in Pictures and they have never been in a psychology book before It is obvious the very best performing people in Autism that can explain a Savant are picture thinkers. Simply presenting this thought process to everyone in the Spectrum will spark all kinds of hope for all of us. We are offering something that is proven to work, even If, especially If, Autism will not own up to us, It certainly has to have some advantage on that fact alone. Perhaps Autism should own up to us and SMEAR us in a media campaign, actually that would work to? It would at least get our message out and the facts will withstand the strongest of critiques.
Our Double-blind Experience rendered and rehashed and taught in an autism school might indeed offer the best hope ever of figuring out figured out autism. Autism by the way was and has been figured out for a long time, it is just natural a traditional thinker would miss the very bold and obvious points of it they don't come from the same point of view we do. Only completed proficient picture thoughts (advanced Autism) mimics traditional thought enough for the traditional mindset to work. What we absently learned was the very basic autism thoughts in our double-blind experience. PLEASE urge Autism powers to admit to us. The Alan Turing's of the world and other Savants were simply just the luckiest people to be able to figure out our picture thoughts and you only know Autism's Rain Men (and Ladies) we were the only obvious things sticking out to grasp, but yet what we have really done is explain them in our experiences.
We are like the reporters of Autism we don't invent our Autism Facts, we just report them. The results are great for everyone in the spectrum except for a few, reputations and empires and professional status would be challenged, but I have faith no one will be out of a job. In fact, we will make more Autism jobs and actually render autism facts that will benefit many other disciplines other than Autism. We explain Einstein to Dyslexia. Too bad we don't have a degree in anything but real life.
