Picture Thought for Dummies
Above is the ultimate in picture thoughts a Projection Thought a thought like this one is a few levels above what Temple Grandin wrote about in her book Thinking In Pictures This high level autism thought runs below the surface of a normal persons mind all the time only you don't know it until your stumped and forgot who someone was. Then you see a picture of them and nothing else as you optic vision is canceled.
As for the thought above the background of the skyline is normal optic vision we, we both would see that. The Dorris Day and Rock Hudson part would be projected by our brain in to our field of vision. You would not see it -its exclusive Autism. Yes it is something like you would know as a daydream. The projected image is BRAIN GENERATED and when know all of picture thoughts we can read it and say that is Dorris Day and Rock Hudson.
When we are little this advanced thought is not possible and instead of this our OPTIC vision would be off -we would NOT have eye contact and we would see this picture thought. This advanced projection thought finally allows us to keep regular eye contact read body language and still think as we were programmed. The best part is once we can do this we have achieved normal thoughts and no longer think in pictures at all unless we want to. Picture thoughts are streaks ahead of normal thought and indeed are the stuff Einstein was made of.
This is the core of autism and the next 1000 chapters in psychology, so please post this on your refrigerator or in you autism picture thought book and have at least one correct picture thought posted. See we really do think in pictures we just don't look at them like the professionals envision we do as they say "make story boards".
