Miracle Run on LIFETIME
Isn't Modern Autism a real heat-wrenching tear jerker affair? Perhaps the movie on Lifetime Cable TV (America) (10-10-06) called the Miracle Run was indeed designed just like-most of modern autism to be just that-heart wrenching. It is good for the cause of autism and the "understanding of autism " and for the whole inflated picture of modern Autism to be spun crafted and presented like this. Damm that Rain Man, what a mess of a legacy that movie has left behind. Modern autism seems to be anything but Autism as we have figured it out and despite our World-Wide anthropology and figuring out a thought process that has never been in a book before, we are obligated to be stifled under the watchful fearful eyes of the "experts of autism."
Modern Autism Powers hold the trump card over us and ignorantly , selfishly keep their newly discovered and invented forms of autism to themselves- by doing so Autism has become this wild trap of good intention and a heaven for "want to be experts" expecting and getting an unchallenged and critiqued career being an "autism expert. " I could really care less of their motivation or the greed or their reasons for making a mountain out of a molehill but, what I do care about is the countless Autisitcs and their families that have been made fools of, as the experts made Autism into something they could rest a career on.
The KICKER of this whole mess is the Autism we have figured out and thrived with is a human thought process that has never been in a book before! We might well have discovered the building blocks of the human mind and at one time we were on the verge of being understood and discovered in Autism Circles and then came modern Autism and its now buzzword status and bowing to that pressure honest knowledge was lost for the sake of the new autism. A few people ignorantly pushed to the point autism they misunderstood to the point we know it today: there will be an Autism telethon soon. Granted Modern Autism does need a telethon to keep its buzzword status alive. The autism it has hidden and now will not admit to is the very core thoughts of man's mind that we have figured out. Our Super knowledge is destined to be hidden in Rain Man's Curse for several more generations.
Autism has given the world the Computer via Alan Turing (1912-1954) and if the Autism Powers would ever dream of uniting us and listen to our experience, Autism will also hold the keys to man's mind something psychology has been trying to discover for centuries. It would discover our Autism "language" is man's universal language as no matter where we are from or language we speak our Proficient Picture Thoughts are the same. The world be grateful to see and learn just how our double-blind experience has yielded a clear road map of the never in print before segments to the human mind. It would witness, If they cared to listen how each autism step we absently completed moved us that much closer to mimicking traditional thought. They would be shocked to see there is little difference between the village idiot and the savant, and even worse the savant Autism likes to exploit so well is not all that complicated if you know the right way to approach it. Knowledge like this is very dangerous to the autism empire however, as unintentionally our exposure will deflate the very basic knowledge of the condition and finally call some of the Autism "experts" on the carpet where their ignorance can be exposed as intentional or unintentional but, more importantly mankind could finally progress with our insight.
As this point Modern Autism has been keeping us hidden for years now, that makes me think they are horrified of the results of our long-term, double-blind experience, perhaps our knowledge hits a little too close to home? The one obvious point should be if they really cared about autism and figuring out autism they would be delighted to see what we have figured out, unless of course they have something to hide like substandard research and the fact many careers and the egos of many experts depend on Autism remaining as it is.
