Man on Thinking (life) Support
I have been TV less for some months now and just recently got re connected to the world so to speak. I always knew TV was just a time waster for many people and the connection in their lives to the world, I realize it for sure now. Humans weather you believe it or not (probably not) think in pictures all the time. Body language is a just a short cut picture thought. Not hearing -listening- is not intentional but rather, the simple picture thought process that is the base line for human thoughts turning off your hearing- just like it does turn off our autistic hearing. Humans can only do limited functions with their brain and usually only one thing at a time thus TV has become easy thinking- the easy button for us. TV has in effect became the life support system of human thought.
Humans might as well be sitting in a nursing home or a hospital bed and instead of the easy chair, being connected directly to life support with wires they are radio wave connected by visually watching TV. If you think that is not at all true- watch what happens when the cable goes out and the pre fed picture thoughts on the screen are no longer there? People go crazy. They are in a state similar to those on real life support when the plug is pulled or the power goes off.
I'm not being funny here, I'm serious the Autism Thoughts I was able to figure out have turned out to be the sublevel thoughts of the mind that when figured out explain the mind. If there were true psychology experts that knew what we know they would be on TV either finishing the brainwashing process or simply be appalled with just how backward the human thought process really is.
Even when I take the autism full circle past the savant and social things to the Einstein thought, I am still limited to the best of picture thoughts. Picture thoughts for the uninformed are simply the daydream based thoughts all humans have. Those daydream thoughts have gone 'internal' and run below the surface of our mind all the time and unless your stuck on a thought and see a minds eye picture of someone you don't know your thinking with versions of your daydreams. Even when you are looking at a minds eye picture of someone and can't place their name you don't know like we do, you have just tapped into the sublevel picture thoughts that make our mind work. Man Mind runs on the daydreams below the surface all the time and when the autistic person has the lack of eye contact or the regular person can't hear (doesn't listen) or jumps to the wrong conclusion or doesn't get the joke It is all the picture thoughts daydream thoughts that are not advanced enough to be useful.
Turn off the TV, read a book and make your own picture thoughts again and humanity will be the beneficiary.
