Golden Age of Autism
A Cocker Spaniel at a Cat Show.
Autism is BOTH Mental Retardation and Developmental Disability if handled incorrectly and it is also little professors Savants and Einstein if treated correctly. Yes, follow the lead of our un admitted to anthropology of Temple Grandin's and you will see were pretty normal people-modern autism is horrified of that. The fine line between success and failure in autism is never more obvious than modern autism antics post Rain Man the movie. It is as obvious as a Cocker Spaniel at a cat show; kind of related but opposite things. Suddenly autism is group homes, belligerent behavior problems, toilet issues in later life, and a general slurry of ignorance. Autism has only been this way since the Autism Empire was born 39 years ago-look at the mold modern autism people are poured from? Look at the mold OLD working Autism was poured from and rediscover the difference in our success quotients. See how the forgotten facts made all the difference in the world. See why we were much better off not being diagnosed. Only the most severe Autism cases were diagnosed prior to Rain Man where today, currently anyone looking funny gets the diagnosis and the full wrath of Rain Man's Curse. Even those of missing the curse would be in a group home if we too were subjected to the antics of modern autism-we are luckiest people on earth we missed the Rain Man curse.
That fine line of success in autism turned south upon the Dr Rimland's (father of Rain Man) over taking and building of the Autism Empire during his rein as Supreme Autism GURU. He either ignorantly or purposely forgot
the Crypto Sensitive Autism Traits that amount to old figured out working autism he obviously never understood to begin with so he could focus on his own Rain Man Mission-in Stardom. His Rain Man movie laid the Red Carpet for all of today's autism and paved the way for many psychology want to bee's to join in the autism parade. Opening the flood gate of autism and turning it into a buzzword psychology like he did/did nothing more than coax the fleas out of the red carpet. Indeed Dr Rimland and others knew of our anthropology and Rimland himself did more than his fair share to keep us hidden as he knew darn well admission to us, amounts to treason against his form of autism. I suspect he was in hopes the old time researchers he squelched would drop dead (many have) and even those of us that made it in life could be ignored long enough so that his empire could be self-sustaining and that wish has come true. The big billion dollar Autism Empire wears the very same blinders it was born with and it is not about to remove them for lingering fear it will exposed as faulty research and a needless epidemic ruining too many lives.
Autism has purposely turned its back on the worlds very best double blind research experiments ever completed and in the meantime has cheated mankind out of the building blocks of the mind. Still, Autism researches and guru's go to bed at night never knowing what they missed and even worse autism presnets as HORRIBLE so easily they just can't believe we made it.Autism is also equally sure it will never dig up the past for fear it really did miss the point. 40 years of autism as a needless epidemic forced upon too many people and families is more responsibility than any Billion Dollar Empire, including autism can withstand. With made for TV movies and celebrities galore from Larry King (Cnn) , Oprah and even NASCAR Races benefiting autism there is no way any of this stardom, fame and status can be jeopardized especially when the people with the answers to autism are only people in the world the autism empire ignore$. I bet you, If my Turing Motor and other inventions work out well they will beat a path to my door begging for money. Then they will seek ways for me not to cripple their empire.
For those in the spectrum searching for the answers look up our autism hero and father of the computer Alan Turing (1912-1954) his biography called The Enigma is our autism blueprint the same one that all of us in our anthropology absently followed. Few if any autism experts will read it and get a thing out of it but it rings a bell with many in the spectrum who have the inside "DaVinci code " to see what Alan really did and what we all did. It is the same stuff modern Autism people need to overcome and don't have chance to do as modern autism is work than help. We can convert this DaVinci autism code into real facts and add thousands of pages to the psychology books but I suspect we are too little too late mankind's ignorance is far more powerful than any knowledge man might try to protect for the sake of an Autism 'experts ego'.
Even Einstein gave up and knew he was trying to push a point he too was at a loss when he said something along the lines of the difference between stupidity and genius is genius has it limits. It seems Modern Autism has it own limits and they stop right where they started , 39 years after Autism Society of America really made a name for themselves ignoring the very facts they forgot to start with. So much for progress. Let's turn this horrible 39 year reign of terror "they call forward progress" back and put autism to a point where it was before Rain Man stuck his foot out and tripped us all. You often have to make two steps backwards to move forward.
