"The challenge is to coax that hidden intellectual spark into the kind of intelligence that manifests itself in practice. " is a quote from a recent Newsweek article on Autism IQ
We have found it, but sadly there are two types real gold and false gold.
Real gold is figured out autism that mimics traditional normal thoughts after we learn the autism "language". Autism is not much different than a foreign language only thing is the "language" is invisible to anyone but the autistic person so naturally all the "professionals" see are bad things stemming from the lack of eye contact. Autism is BOTH MR/DD and Einstein and correctly completed autism thoughts that have never been in a text book before yield "normal" thoughts even social ones, like we use.
The day any autism professional (Dr Cathy Pratt from the ASA are you listening?) will do the correct thing and listen to all of autism they will finally be blessed to hear of our picture in picture thoughts, or projection thoughts, our still and motion picture thoughts and our 3 and 4 dimension thoughts they will be seen as the building blocks of the human mind and when figured out like we have done they produce normal thoughts. ALL of these thoughts take place during the LACK OF EYE CONTACT and are simply autism thoughts trying to work-it is as simple as that. What is complicated is those thoughts have never been in a text book before and even the best professional will naturally ignore the very best in human thought to preserve their way of thinking?
The natural impasse in Autism and psychology is the fact too many "professionals" with too many degrees and sometimes lofty exceptions are harvesting a career helping people but don't realize their help is just treading water and not progress. While countless professionals hang their hat on the current knowledge of psychology no one realizes the very answer they seek is below where they are looking. Peer Review assures that only the party line is ever developed and unknowingly peer review without an honest look at all sides of a psychology issue is just one sided journalism. The big shock of listening if it ever happens the professional will discover like we have Autism is the building blocks of the human mind and Rain Man the village idiot and a normal person of our anthropology are all doing the same autism-only some of us figured it all out in a double blind experience that often took us 40 years to complete. If they do listen, listening and hearing are two different thing$.
Despite modern autism's heart being in the right place you have to admit a billion dollar empire choked full of experts has no room for the complete figured out autism story. Granted No autistic person living with the very inside information to figure out the autism thought process would ever be allowed to solve the mystery of autism we are in effect too dumb to that so even we do we are shunned from the peer review process.
Even worse we not only figured out a kind of simple never in print before human thought system it discovery not only discovers the links between autism and normal thoughts it ALSO highlights the shortfalls in Modern Autism logic that were purposely forgotten in the Rain Man Era. If Autism were suddenly forced to admit to all the facts of crypto sensitive autism again their empire and false foundations would be in shambles.
What empire will allow its self to be toppled with any form of the truth? What empire will investigate and research our claims of our living anthropology knowing full well any admission to us will not be the autism progress they ever wanted to hear. They have generations of people in group homes now and they have too many years of MR/DD style autism under their belts to ever stop and think and do the right thing. The developed Autism culture from Parents to the autistic themselves and especially the professional just assume and set the standards of autism so low that the group home ideal at age 18 is now success. Gone are the days when we set in the classroom without eye contact figuring out the building blocks of the human mind and connecting autism to the real world with our Autism Splinter skills. Gone are the days when people naturally seen the smart side to us and tailored their teaching style to it. Gone are the days when we were allowed to be in the real world and gone are the days when Autism just simply an odd strange childhood that eventually worked out for everyone. So much for progress. Only autism could ignore a living working anthropology of people that have been there and done that and get by with such nonsense and still call themselves researchers? Curse you Rain Man (the movie).
