response to a reader
Thanks for telling me of your website, I looked it over and admire all the efforts you are doing on your son's behalf. Modern autism is such a night mare and I cry every day knowing what I know of autism and knowing It is so simple and CURSED. Autism is not at all the neurological disorder its claimed to be it is simply a different kind of human thought process that has never been in a text book before. Autism thoughts when completed and learned by us (we are all self taught) nearly equal and yes often exceed normal thoughts. One side of autism is MR/DD and the other is Einstein! (really). Add in our odd physical senses (we hate clothes for example) and keen senses and different thought process and modern autism "Experts" are stumped. You will be horrified to learn autism was "solved" before it was ever reinvented via the Rain Man era autism we know today.
I urge you to read the book titled THE ENIGMA (1983) by Andrew Hodges. It is the biography of Alan Turing (1912-1954) and he was Autistic and father of the computer. This book unknowingly is also the Autism blue print all of the people like me absently followed to overcome autism. There are at least 200 more people like me from both modern and old autism that have figured out the picture thoughts (lack of eye contact) and our keen sense's and also learned to waterdown our super complicated thoughts and pull off normal pretty well. Modern Autism knows of us and is horrified that if they admit to us modern autism will be seen as a farce. A billion dollar empire is self serving and will not tolerate us. Indeed Dr. Rimland father of Rain Man "forgot" or never knew 1/2 the facts of autism now called Crypto Sensitive Autism. Good luck trying to find information on them these days. Crypto Sensitive Autism facts explain all the nagging details haunting modern autism making it and epidemic.
Since what we have figured out has never been in a text book before and all the "experts are looking 'up" to discover autism's Di Vinci Code they are missing the whole point. Further no modern expert researching autism will talk to the very retard they are researching as their logic states "impossible." The Autism we have figured out will add 1000s of chapter to the psychology books and connect man to his past and along the way connect our two worlds. Autism is just the slow motion step by step thought process all humans do to think. Normal humans do a working streamlined version of our thoughts and when we absently learn those same thoughts we come off as normal as well. If science could hook monitor to our brain and watch the one by one picture thoughts (think daydream) compile during the lack of eye contact they would see just what we do to make a thought and then translate it to speech. (it also explains Stuttering and Dyslexia among other things)
I wish you well on you autism journey and like those before you we did autism on our own. Thankfully we were NOT cursed with Rain Man Era politics and "Help." Our Splinter skills were taped and we were not viewed as retards and that made all the difference in the world. I suspect when you read The Enigma you see the splitting Image of your son and many other autistic people and be shocked to discover Autism worked well on its own in a strange odd way. If I get my Inventions sold I will by back autism from the Empire and publish the 4-5 Thinking in Picture type book Modern autism will not touch as well as expose our anthropology of Temple Grandins.
