WE All do it - Think in Picutres
If the Autism Thoughts we have learned are the building blocks of the mind you have just witnessed an autism thought you don't know you have stranded in mid thought. Autism If we are right is all kinds of thoughts like this and while you never 'see' these thoughts except on the rare occasion when your stumped,we as humans think with thoughts like those all the time. They run silently below the surface all the time. If we are right these thoughts are building block thoughts. They tell us everything from how to walk and chew gum to ,including even how we talk and if they are done wrong,why we stutter, have dyslexia and yes all figured out how we do Einstein. Rain Man the Move character was only a few picture thoughts away from "Einstein".
Autisitcally ,our OPTIC vision is OFF and we present with lack of eye contact. Our Brain interjects a picture thought into our optic nerve and once we learn to read that picture, build on it and convert it to words we are one or two steps closer to mastering the short hand version of this also known as normal human thoughts. There are 5-6 different kind of picture thoughts and none have been in a text book before and they based in your daydreams (lack of better words). These sub level thoughts are the natural starting point for most people but for many of us we needed to start school learning them. These invisible thoughts are below 123 and the ABC's and not even Sesame Street and Big Bird mention them.
These thoughts are Still and Motion Pictures as mentioned in Temple Grandin's Thinking in Pictures, Then success full people like me ADD to her work Picture-in-Picture thoughts they make us social, Projection thoughts, 3 and 4 dimension thoughts and they make us Einstein. Once we learn all the sub level thoughts and how to use them and when to use them we have learned the longhand version of human thoughts. Once that is mastered suddenly our thoughts become 'sorthand' and we indeed pull off the trick of being normal.
Someday Autism/developmental thoughts could be taught in school as these 1000 chapters in psychology are discovered and as they point out the obvious man will be both delighted and shocked with the outcome. On one hand man will be able to get nearly everyone out of MR/DD special education , re teach a stroke victim how to live again by reprogramming their basic mindset (like hitting a reset button) and on the other the connection to our cave person past will prove to be too close for comfort.
