As dumb as Einstein
The good news is It has indeed gone from MR/DD to Einstein the bad news Einstein was too smart for his own good as was Di Vinci , Tesla and Indeed Alan Turing. The shocker of all of this stupidity is as I read the works of Einstein himself is I know exactly where is coming from. His deep picture based thoughts the autism thoughts you would know as daydreams that we translate to normal thoughts are just miles above the head of most people. Einstein him self started out as 'dumb' too. Only today after people can digest his ideas and comment on his work after he is dead (without his input) is he seen as the smart guy.
Einstein and De Vinci all gave up on the human race as I clearly see in their writing. The typical human is only playing with 1/2 a deck and thinking in a very shallow way. Majority is mediocrity and mediocrity dismisses any idea or concept it can't figure out in 30 seconds. Naturally the good thought and reason we have discovered never rings a bell. The entire Autism thought process that starts primitive deep in the autism invisible lack of eye contact thought process and is finally figured out when we discover our OPTIC and brain generated vision are two different things. The DEEP brain generated images are where our good ideas like the Turing Motor come from.
We learned Autism's short cuts, streamlined really fast thoughts that we need to learn to become social are indeed your normal everyday thoughts. Just like everyday dishes everyday thoughts are not quite up to standard required to understand the deep thoughts. The 1000 chapters we figured out in our autism journey could add volumes to the psychology books would finally give the modern self elected experts and educators the real insight they need to effectively do their jobs. All those guys playing with brain wave machines are kind of missing the point. Put a true picture thinker in one of those machines like me with a complete working model of my Turing Motor going in my head and I wonder how that brain wave test would look like?
The logic and the reason and the little one by one autism thoughts that eventually yield normal thoughts have never been in a textbook before. If only they had; Autism for sure would be reduced to a simple grade 1-6 pre school with most of us coming out normal. Autism is the slow motion one by one sub level thoughts that need to be learned (not even taught to us) before normal thoughts you use even work. The day an autism expert or psychology expert can tell us what to do or tell what we are doing during the lack of eye contact and not get all bet of shape over it they will have discovered what we have. SUDDENLY they will know, the still and motion picture thoughts (Temple wrote of those) and they know our Picture in Picture thoughts make us social.Suddeny they will then know our thoughts are watered down to you level. Most importantly however the obvious point of normal thoughts you know use and love that serve mankind well (to a point) are simply to simple to be truly useful in solving the big problems.
Once man discoverers his roots mind wise he will GASP realizing we are not any more advanced than the Romans were, Granted we have more things and people and the world is connected, it is still flat in too many respects. The motors we use are Stumbled Upon logic not innovation. The innovation and the glimmers of hope are here in the works of Einstein, Turing and others and the biggest reason none of those great ideas are in practice is man himself. When 20% of man's logic is all he uses there is little reason to expect the good ideas that will solve mother earths trouble will ever be identified let alone corrected. The herding instinct in people is actually what makes society work as well as, it does. That same herding instinct is also what keeps man glued to Roman times. (oh Hell, Lets have a Toga Party!)
