20 years later,
Mankind's most promise ever has been thwarted in the name of autism progress!
Modern Autism will be Crippled with our admission.
Well, It has been twenty years ago now when Autism officially learned of Rich Shull and many others like me mostly older very high functioning adults .We have discovered we have done the very obvious SIN of missing Rain Man's Curse and thus we missed the resulting Autism Epidemic. Our normal life absent of group homes and anti social behavior are just plain treason. It was the winter of 92 when I was officially introduced as the next Temple Grandin by none other than Dr. Cathy Pratt at an Indiana University Conference on Autism. Cathy is now very high up in the Autism Socieity of America.
I don't think Dr. Pratt or any other autism "expert" was ever expecting to learn of 200 MORE like me that all do more than Temple Grandin does and we amazingly take Autism thoughts all the way to the threshold of normal thought. Our Autism Blueprint in the form of the book The Enigma (1983 Hodges) is the biography of Alan Turing (1912-1954) he was and is the Shining Beacon of Autism Hope. Alan was a W.W.II hero and father of the computer. All the purposely forgotten Autistic people that currently modern Autism will not admit to, unknowingly follow his blueprint. This working model of undiagnosed autism before Rain Man's Curse shows just how and WHY we did autism so well. It also shows that modern Autism would be an epidemic just by the mere fact modern autism done away with 1/2 the known facts of the condition. This begs the question is Modern Autism fundraising/ research 101? OR is it really autism research? I suspect real honest research would have welcomed our living working anthropology not swept it under the rug time and again. (Or ignored it to begin with.)
The Autism we know and love and have overcome is nothing more than a 'foreign language' and a thought process never known to man. Autism is BOTH MR/DD and Einstein and yes even savants like Rain Man. Savants are obvious and make Rain Movies worthwhile but those of in real life take the Savant the rest of the way.The Autism thought process as even modern Autism spectrum experts admit to takes place during the lack of eye contact. While we have figured out the invisible brain generated picture thoughts that constitute Autism that take place during the lack of eye contact/all the so called 'Autism Experts' are stumped on that same point. Their PHD's tell them something is wrong but those same PHD's don't allow for the fact same something we have figured out is autism! Our odd but working Autism thought process has never been in a text book before and it is NOT desrenable in current Autism Research or any psychology research as the experts don't even know what questions to ask or for that matter have the guts to ask them.
While our anthropology of autism real life experts has done the impossible in a real life and connected autism to normal thoughts just like you use,everyday, we are very worst news Modern Autism could ever want to know about. Admitting to even ONE of us will unravel the entire Autism Empire built on false foundations and prove autism experts are only pretenders. EVEN WORSE the Autism Society of America and Autism Speaks and other non profit groups supposedly set up for the betterment of Autism have failed time and again to presue honest unbiased Autism Research as again it would cripple the Autism Epidemic so popular today and call Autism's Designer Status into question. It will not be hard to figure out the Crypto Sensitive Autism (old autism) guidelines were forgotten in the Rain Man Era and conveniently forgetting those facts opened up the flood gates of an autism epidemic. The resulting billion dollar autism research empire will not be toppled "by the very retards it is researching". The first rule of empires is to insure their own surivial and reputations no matter the real cost to man.
Very sadly Autism's Epidemic designer status has shortchanged all of mankind as we have figured out the building blocks of man's mind and all Modern Autism is worried about is their peer review bubble of self inflicted ignorance. We could add 1000s of pages to the psychology books and direct man's thinking in many uncharted unthought of directions and advance all of mankind. But here Modern Autism is genuinely puzzled as they don't know what they are hiding. They think they are protecting their reputations and they are doing a bang up job at that, for sure. Their lack of professional research standards however is obvious and is glaringly obvious when you see how our comments have been banished from the autism public record of the CDC Town Hall Autism Meetings (thanks to the late Dr Rimland, father of the movie Rain Man) and when you know many more books built upon Temple Grandin's Thinking in Pictures have been banished from Autism Circles.
Autistic and Autism Spectrum Parents you know as well as, many of us do there is plenty more to autism than meets the eye (pun intended) and if your not simply satisfied with a group home and poor behavior and know there is Einstein in all of us PLEASE HELP US by making the autism "experts" stand up and take notice and admit to all of autism not just the parts that constitute their ignorant bliss that is killing us all. You will not only be helping autism but Mankind as well as when our Anthropology and its success is finally admitted to.
