Evolved anything doesn't always means progress. History will tell us evolution of anything is 50% luck and 50% moving forward 2 steps and back three. This explains why earth is old and man is still so primitive. Even worse man fools himself all the time by thinking he is so smart. Considering the number and people on earth and the obvious lack of the common experience to unite them man really has evolved as best as he can but mind you were still very primitive. Those Model T's we still drive are only one step above a stage coach!
Autism no the modern epidemic of 2008 is a prime example of 2 step backwards! Autism before it was high jacked and turned into a cause, curse, and a future cure was on the verge of reviling its DI Vinci Code to mankind. Autism is not at all a neurological disorder but rather the building blocks of mans mind all figured out. Autism is 100s of chapters of pure psychology, education and medical science all waiting to be tapped. Autism is the connection of mental retardation and developmental disabilities and yes Savant and Einstein. Autism is the DNA Road map of the mind and is indeed both MR/DD and Einstein. Those of us completing the journey from one end of the Autism Spectrum to the other have done the possible and the impossible bit is we finished our double blind human autism experience just in time to face the scourge of modern Epidemic Rain Man Autism head on. A billion dollars worth of Autism Empire and peer reviewed proper autism experts are not about to admit to us.
So mankind is cursed a few more centuries and someday some other autistic person will be writing my blog and he or she will be mentioning The Boy From Alverez (1600's Autism story) Alan Turing father of The computer, The Einstein's of the world, the people like me that build on Temple Grandin's work which autism ignores on purpose and they will dedicate large amounts of words to the Autism Crisis of 2008 the self inflicted wound of Autism's Rain Man movie. They will make the same points we do Autism is so simple and the step-by-step thoughts of the mind. They will point out as we do figured out autism thoughts that have never been in a book before yield normal thoughts even social ones and like today they will fall on deaf ears. My future counterparts will face the same challenge of the same type of experts we do (they will be poured from the same mold) and only if one of us does some major invention or saves the world will we get any attention. I can see it now our Autism gate keeps will be saying see there is genius in autism! The only genius in Autism is getting our gatekeepers to listen to the very retards they are researching. Genius has it limits stupidity doesn't to paraphrase our autism hero Einstein. Centuries from now Autism will be solved like it is today and it was before Rain Man but due to the nature of autism and Mankind in general autism will not be any closer to being discovered than it was right before the Curse of Rain Man took effect. We will finally add the 100s of chapters to psychology everything from Stuttering to dyslexia to autism to social trouble to phobia to learning abilities and dis abilities and even lunatics mental moonstruck hysterical people will have a "plug in" answer to their conditions. All of psychology is very simple answers only made 30 times more complicated by man himself. Again, Autism is the simple building block thoughts of man's mind and Normal people do a streamlined version of our thoughts. Our thoughts figured out equal your thoughts. No wonder experts galore will never find the answer they seek as they are tricked by their own minds into thinking man is more patrician than he really is.
