30 Famous Thinkers-inital post
I was recently sent this link to a very good website featuring 'great minds'. Indeed most of these people have autism traits and indeed might like many of us been able to overcome our autism on our own either absently with age and experience or with honest knowledge of our different mindsets- before the curse of Rain Man era Autism. Of course privately in our own mind, we often realized we might have figured out 'normal persons thoughts ' but the average person uses too much of a shortcut thought process to even have our thoughts register. So, in reality, us explaining our mind to normal people was mostly futile and the dismal chance of success of us relating our 1000 chapters of psychology as we know them are not real good. When you discover the mind that has never been in a text book before and also discover it spans from the bottom of the gene pool to Einstein and the most active segment of the normal human mind is a very small range of short cut thoughts ;one then realizes the real meaning of some of the stuff Einstein and others are quoted on . Of course, some of these great minds were great minds and not many of them had the Social butterfly ability they needed to really ring the chimes of the normal population. That would have come eventually like it has for many of us.
One addition to this list of great thinkers I would add is Alan Turing 1912-1954 he was gay autistic and father of the computer. His biography by Andrew Hodges, The Enigma is autism all figured out in plain sight and like the autism we know, it is beyond the scope of normal thinkers even if they have PH.D in Psychology. (They are blindest of them all.)
Please look over the link below and read up on some of the minds of time gone by. I will comment on some of the articles and title them 30 Famous Thinkers, so you can quickly follow them threw the blog. Best Rich
