Kinds of Autism
Autism is the same as it has always been from the old autism story of The Boy from Alverez in the 1600's to more modern autism heroes like Alan Turing (1912-1954) and the legions of unadmitted to Autistic of 2008 that have taken Autism from its MR/DD roots to its savants and Einstein and social summits and normal functioning people, Autism is the same as it has always been. Mis understood.
Autism is a cause a condition a buzzword and anything BUT autism in 2008 and most of the trouble is the all the "experts" attracted to the condition after the movie Rain Man. Autism is not a neurological condition but rather it is the simple step-by-step thoughts all human minds do to think. We do what normal people do when we figure out our autism thoughts. Autism thoughts start out one or two steps BELOW 123 and the ABC's and then go to the 123s and then on to normal thoughts. Many many autism people have pulled off that trick and even if took us 40 years we learned a never in print before thought process that connects mankind to his more primitive side.
Autistic people cursed with the diagnosis of 2008 are forever blackballed and killed in the kindness of caring that is thrust upon us as experts ignorant of the basic facts of autism get swept off their feet inventing their own Autism Epidemic. Autism was solved long before Rain Man the 1988 Movie reinvented the wheel. Forces beyond human control turned autism in to the next designer condition and indeed many facts once known to autism (crypto sensitive autism) were purposely forgotten so the Autism crisis could develop. Old Autism researchers on the verge of exposing our different invisible thought process that happens during the lack of eye contact were banished from Autism. Admit to the Temple Grandin Autistic now blackballed from Autism (both old new versions of Autism) and the Autism you know all about gets a nasty dose of reality. Old Figured out autism is the building blocks of the mind and our thoughts have never been in a text book before and probably never will be as the autism peer reviewed guru's really don't care autism they care about their paychecks. If they were honest researchers they would welcome every point of view autism has to offer but in this case admitting to those of us figuring out autism is treason.
There is a very fine line of Autism Success and Failure and modern diagnosis assures Modern Autism diagnosed people unknowingly get the very worst treatment possible. Older counter parts missing the diagnosis like me, were often treated to the same harsh life but our difference was we learned grew and figured out autism's odd never in print before thought process and our keen senses a privilege modern autistic never get anymore. Autism can so easily present as social idiot and MR/DD and it also if it admitted to us can present as normal functioning people. Admit to Autism before Rain Man and see how old working autism absently worked so well in a time and space before we were cursed with progress. See how autism Savants and little professors worked, see how we were in two grades at once one subject above grade level and one below. See how we had social training and figured out all of our social picture based lack of eye contact thoughts and see how we even drive today. See the difference it made to be a SMART person and a genius Vs an autistic retard of today. Autism forgot and never knew the fact every Autism student has an Einstein side and if they tap into that (a forgotten art) Autism presents as much more doable. READ our autism blueprint in the 1983 Andrew Hodges Book The Enigma the biography of Alan Truing and see the same autism your kid has and see how it played out so much different from the way modern Autism does. See how modern Autism got a hold of the wrong end of the autism stick and see the horrible after math of shoddy Autism research. Yes, it had good intention and people genuinely don't under stand autism but purposely ignoring the successful autism people of today is just plain shoddy, sloppy, self serving autism research designed to keep people employed and give them papers to write.
Autism is both MR/DD and Einstein and no one in the spectrum will lower their standards to even admit to old working Temple Grandin types. No, we don't have all the answers but, we do far better at life than modern folks do. Modern researches will not talk to the very retard they are researching and presume they are smarter than. The impasse remains and is even greater than it ever was as autism is now a designer Epidemic plastered on the side of a race car and the hot topic of Ophera and Larry King Live and many other Television programs all promoting autism awareness month all year around. It seems all of us that had the natural born Autism thought process and figured out a never in a text book thought system are just inferior to our expert research staff assigned to us that never had an autism thought in their lives. No wonder Autism is such a mess the experts are in charge!
