Autism Success in Spurts
Of course, success is success and modern autism takes credit for it thinking it was something they have done.
I have met many people over the years in the autism spectrum some people are really very well connected to their autistic loved ones and these people kind of let a few things go that modern autism would condemn. Perhaps they don't do a diet, perhaps they allow the person to have a splinter skill or obsession or even let them slip by without giving the eye contact. Some people know and realize their autistic person has great thoughts locked inside and although they don't present so well there are good thoughts there trying to get out. They take the time and the put fort the effort to explore and dabble a bit into the insight that their autistic person displays but no one else will connect to.
Occasionally I hear of spurt of growth or insight displayed by the autistic person and the scope of the revelation is such that the person might only read at the 2nd grade level but what they displayed was clearly high school junior high or even college level stuff, and their family is SHOCKED as they where did that come from? Why can't it be repeated yet again? (everyday)? Well, It can be!
Odds are this person is a picture thinker and those picture thoughts just happened to, for once, have the right timing and circumstances to be able to be converted to words. Modern Autism has no clue we think in one very progresive and complicated language and talk in your language and we must learn a conversion process to get Autism thought to speech. Autism has no clue that when our lack of eye contact (and sometimes lack of hearing) signals you we are out of it-we are actually using that time or should be in looking at and figuring out our picture thought-brain generated images we use to think with as our primary thought process. Not only do we have to learn how to convert those ImageStream's to words we need to also learn still pictures, motion pictures, picture in picture, projection and 3 d , 4 d type of autism thoughts as well. If we learn all of that stuff that has never been in a text book before we call that proficient picture thought and it is a very close second to traditional thought you use and are trying so hard to teach us.
Our double-blind experience from people all over the world has yielded this insight and we are definitely on the wrong page of life to ever be admitted and even listed to by the "experts" of a Billion Dollar Autism Empire. The really good news is our double blind experience could actually be repeated and taught and condensed so that it could be taught by 6th grade. Autism Thought is only complicated if you don't know how it works or what it is made of-it took our inside information to figure that out. A Ph.D. in real life however is not good enough it seems, no matter how well we actually do autism. Again as I say all over this blog there is little or no difference between the autistic savant, the village idiot or our high functioning people in our group we all share the same picture thoughts (invisible to you) and it is only our ability to convert Autism to traditional speech and language that connects us to the real world. Perhaps autism really is the slow motion building blocks of the human mind all figured out?
Please note however all the Autism success I mention in this post is based on Picture Thinking what I consider to be autism. Picture thought autism is typically the oldest version of autism and the stuff we have figured out and the stuff Rain Man era Autism forgot or lost track of in its zeal to grow and 'help." It is what Alan Turing (1912-1954) used to invent the computer with It is how and what we have figured that we do normal life with. I have found many modern Autistic people don't have the first insight to picture thought, they don't have our keen senses, pain tolerance or obsession, splinter skills or preference to be alone. Even some modern aspie instantly realize our / their picture thoughts they seem to be hard wired for it. Our natural first language (No, it has never been in a text book before) is picture thought.
