Thinking Autism ,Thinking Again
I was driving on the eastside of Columbus Ohio the other Sunday and seen in front of me was a well polished black sport utility truck sporting all kinds of Autism Logos and even and official Sate of Ohio "Autism License plate." The state offers special edition car license plates for various non profit causes where their logo can be integrated in the official license plate. They have plates for Breast Cancer, Free Masons etc. I always cringe when I see the autism I know love and with turned in into a designer condition and reduced to a logo and a slogan. Curse you Rain Man. I have a hard enough time driving autistically or I'd chased the person down for a meeting.
The Autism Ribbon an magnetic sticker on the back of this vehicle, was the autism is a puzzle background and the words THINK AUTISM, THINK CURE and I might add THINK AGAIN. Autism was better solved and more "curable" long before Rain Man the movie took a hold of the condition. I 'm sure If autism engineers and modern autism professionals ever admitted to those of us before Rain Man the Autism of today would suddenly cease to exist. Suddenly all the troubles of Autism would have useful working solutions and even worse modern autism would be seen as only the Rain Man half of the Autism "facts." I guess after Rain Man when Autism was really becoming the designer condition it was very fashionable -- it was much easier to make an epidemic of autism using only 1/2 the facts of autism.
IF ALL of autism-old autism-now called Crypto Sensitive Autism were included in the autism "facts" of today all the issues and problems of autism would have much better solutions and certainly better out comes. Modern Autism is noted for its epidemic its wild claims and sadly the way they go about teaching autism the group home status of their kids. Don't even get me started on the poor anti social behavior. If you admitted to all our Temple Grandin style autistic and followed us into the REAL world and see just we have figured out and see how we connected MR/DD to Einstein suddenly autism would loose its luster and have a very hard time explaining why for the past 30 years they have messed up so very bad. Even worse, the obvious "plug in" details of Crypto Sensitive Autism not only explain why we made it but why modern Autism jumped the gun.
While we have figured out the building blocks of the human mind and many of us have blended into real life and even become tops in our fields we are from the wrong end of the gene pool and on the wrong side of the autism timeline to ever be admitted to now. No self respecting Ph.D. person researching autism or anything else will ever talk to the very retard they are "smarter than." Their built in bias is natural and understandable but it is also the very reason Autism is an Epidemic, its an epidemic of ignorance of Autism professionals', however.
