Moving Gracefully threw life, like we do.
From Syndrome List
**** Difficulty intellectually and physically in knowing where their own body leaves off and the surrounding environment begins, especially when younger
////// Rich Shull Between the Pain tolerance and the Optic vision being turned off and on we do miss a lot of things, once Picture in Picture thought develops we can do much better at flowing and moving gracefully.
Modern Psychology and Science is for sure laughing at this statement. (He who laughs first is also the one to laugh last.) They don't have a clue our 'lack of eye contact' is a signal of working autism. If they understood our thought process they would know our OPTIC vision is OFTEN OFF for anyplace from a few milliseconds on. While our optic vision is OFF our, we are either thinking and viewing a brain generated image or we are in "Limbo" between the two type of thoughts. We might actually be out of it- not seeing with optic vision or thinking with brain generated images.
We are doing two different things thinking autistically with picture thoughts and CONVERTING THOSE thoughts to your thoughts.
Proficient Picture thinkers have learned to do our very unique picture thought process, blend it with yours and we are even able to achieve body language communication with you. If we work and keep our OPTIC vision ON we can often improve with coordination issues and like you, if our optic vision is ON we can do pretty well. It is when our Optic vision is OFF and we are thinking in pictures that we don't see enough of the physical world to do stuff gracefully.
As for the pain tolerance we often don't feel the same physical things you do, we have to feel things longer and squeeze them harder before they register with us. We have been known to walk on broken bones after all.
