From Rich Shull, Blog host, Alan Turing was Old Working Autism, all figured out in a time and place before autism was cursed with the Rain Man Era "helpless version of Autism" that passes for an epidemic today. Alan's Autism was the Blueprint of many pre Rain Man autism people and indeed we all figured out the same things absent of each other. Many of us took our Splinter skills and obsession beyond the Savant and connected MR/DD to Einstein. What we have done has never been in a book before. Our lack of Eye Contact thought process is just another from of human thought. It would shock the experts of modern autism to see just what it is we do and how we do it. Autism is not what they think it is.
From the Forward by Douglas Hofstadter
"Alan Turing was homosexual- a fact that he took no particular pains to hide,espically as he grew older. For a boy growing up in the 1920s and for a grown man in the subsequent few decades, being homosexual -especially if one was British and a member of the upper classes- was an unmentionable, terrible, and mysterious affliction. "
Most of us in our old High Functioning Anthropology are indeed Gay Lesbian Transgendered and Bi Sexual and some of us are straight. In fact most of our High Functioning people that BUILD on Temples' work met on a Yahoo Group for GLBT aspies. Before you gasp out loud, be careful many of your kids have secretly contacted us and came out to many of us in our Group.
"Atheist, homosexual, eccentric, marathon (with out Walls!) running English mathematician, A.M. Turing was in a large part responsible not only for the concept of computers, intensive theorems about their powers and clear vision of the possibility of computer minds, but also for the cracking of German ciphers during the Second World War. It is fair to day that we owe much to Alan Turing for the fact we are not under Nazi Rule today. And yet this salient figure in world history has remained, as the book's title say's an enigma."
I can assure you if the majority of our high functioning group were straight autism would have had its heroes at least 200 more of us and as such we would deflate the autism empire. Again our thought process has never been in a text book before but perhaps it was in Hieroglyphics on a cave wall? Some Hieroglyphics look like our picture in picture thought process and not the dinner order they claim.
Rampant modern autism is unchecked and without our input it has been allowed to get blown out of proportion. Of Course the white straight and narrow folks in autism and psychology can't even think beyond the scope of their usually small mind. Autism is and was Picture thoughts, that start out below 123 and the ABCs and go all the way to Einstein. The Day Anyone in autism research can tll us and you what a Still and motion Picture is and a projection thought, as well as, 3 and 4 dimension thoughts is the day Psychology will be figured out. IF I'm right psychology will be solved ,with our admission. I have personally seen the root thoughts of Stuttering AND Dyslexia in our Picture thought.
Don't ever expect autism to own up to us now, Rain Man the movie made autism the next big buzzword and now that it is a peer reviewed mess of sloppy substandard autism malarkey. The fact we have pulled of the mr/dd to Einstein trick and coupled together man's odd senses are reasons enough to ignore us. There is no one in this day and age of Autism big money even willing to listen to the very people that built on Temple's Thinking in Pictures book. Curse you Rain Man the movie. It has set man back centuries and I can't help to think the late Dr. Rimland was seeking profit form autism at the expense of others. It seems he knew just enough to be dangerous The autism Empire was worth over a Billion dollars last year- When I win the lotto I will buy some of it back. Rich Shull
