The Wild boy making life flow
36 Victor loved setting the table ,or anything else he could do to be helpful. Sawing firewood filled him with happiness and pride. He love the fragrant wood and the sound of the saw. He was skillful at feeding and tending the fires. When he solved a difficult problem in his studies,or the doctor praised him , he beamed with pleasure. HE love order and straightened his room every day. He was a boy ,a person. He wasn't wild anymore.
"He loved order and straightened his room every day" That is "autism picture thoughts" at work. Lost in our lack of eye contact thoughts are photo images of our lives. Those images are like your daydream to some degree and it really helps our world flow If the images in our minds eye are the same ones in reality vision. If things get moved and no longer 'match' our picture in the mind thoughts it causes confusion until we learn some more advanced autism thoughts. If you had to think in daydreams all the time like we do (our default system) and those Day dream thoughts had to match the real world you would see where many autistic get their "attitude from".
Being a Social Slave is also a hall mark autism thing. Until we figure out how to do more than most basic things socially we are better off getting along to go along. Thus we are great at doing the table ,cleaning, putting up with tons of "problems". Sadly many of us in our Autism anthropology have discovered we are prime servants for the Narcissistic people in our lives. By the time we discover a parent usually had molded us into a Narcissistic web it is often too late to help ourselves out of a eggshell life. Taat means we learn to walk on eggshells keeping the Narcissistic rants to a minimum to actually seeing the Narcissistic Eggshell in our "loved one". Narcissistic people are hollow people all built on image and no real substance. A born onto them slave like an Autism child is a gift for them.
