From Rich Shull, What a very good effort, too bad this book falls short on substance missing autism hero Alan Turing's (1912-1954) and his phenomenal triumphs over Autism and fathering the computer. Alan was a W.W.II hero winning an OBE office of the British Empire award and even hob knobbed with heads of state including Churchill. Alan's odd strange way and intense ideas and splinter skills among other things made him the hero he was. Being Gay and coming out autistically and sexually gave him the very same intense social class all of us in our Autism group have had. Autism's UN admitted to current day heroes all have discovered were too little too late, despite doing autism perfectly and doing stuff that has never been in a text book before and despite NOT being a social misfit (well not a major one) we do the impossible every day.
Modern Autism Is not all thrilled with our success/it makes their success of pathetic "fourth graders in college " (my apologies to young aspies) and all the more painful. Admitting to the autism we have done and comparing it to the autism they know and love is just pure treason for modern Autism that will be exposed as a farce of Rain Man if we are ever admitted to. Admitting to us will go too many miles in proving modern autism was indeed invented and made into a self inflicted injury. We have discovered the building blocks of the human mind and taped them. Autism, has not become a neurological disorder, those taking that stance are indeed the very professionals that have never had an autism thought or figured out what we have. Autism is really neurological order, something no professional has ever experienced. Autism is BOTH MR/DD and Einstein and the day autism quits speaking for us and listens it can discover what we have.
The biography of Alan Turing by Andrew Hodges (1983) is unknowingly the Autism blueprint all of us in our successful autism group have followed. Modern Autism will not own up to any of us. This book is titled The Enigma. Many modern Autism Apologist could read the book and never know they read the autism blueprint and inadvenrently the answers they seek. Even IF they did understand it they would protect themselves and their good olde boy autism network and claim they didn't. Autism is indeed very illusive and very obvious if you know what to look for. Modern Autism research empires and peer approved doctors really don't want to know our answers or know about us , frankly. They are much happier keeping the status quoe in group homes and in a life they molded for them. Once were pigeonholed with early diagnosis at age three we have no where to go but down these days. Still if one person is brave enough to see how we built on Temples work and took it to normal thoughts we might be able to the impossible for everyone in the spectrum? Who would have ever dreamd autism was figured out? Certainly not those that invented the condition post Rain Man.
Rich Shull on the blogs Atomic autism and Pre Rain Man Autism.
