The next 1000 Chapters in Psychology
Autism, before it was side tracked and became a circus act and buzzword; was VERY CLOSE to being discovered as the connection between MR/DD and Einstein. Autism properly understood and figured out is nothing more than the building blocks of the mind. The Autism mind , as well as, your own mind has entire segments that have never been in a text book before. Man is a fool to himself and absently ignorant of his own minds mind that it is nearly worthless for me to even write about the building blocks of the mind, even though they apply to everyone. Weather we are in a group home ,a late bloomer ,most popular or the most respected doctor on earth or the proverbial couch potato (American slang) our mind that we know and hone to a state we like to call normal is just a small visible sliver of the 'oblivous'.
To make our mind work as we like to think it does- there are banks upon banks of internal codes and short cuts (aka picture thoughts /kind of daydream) that we need to do before normal presents itself. Most people are simply blessed with normal natural thought as standard issue and remain clueless threw out their entire life to the innrworking of the mind. Autistic like me started out below 123 and the ABC's and inadvertently learned the sub level thoughts you unknowingly use all the time every day. Once we learned those we could stop along the way and be Einstein, we could become the social butterflies we were not in school. We thrive often very late in life and most of us like indeed Einstein himself all claim some sort of learning trouble in early life. The Einstein picture thoughts that make us really smart and innovative are a mix of our (yours too) cave person senses and our total understanding of the mind. The mind is NOT pretty nor as grand as you hoped it would be, it is just a big picture book that talks. As backward as the mind really is, the world is in pretty good shape over all but we not any further along than we were in Roman times in terms of psychology , philosophy or even medical science for that matter. It is just as well really ,as the mass ignorance factor ,somewhat like religion, keeps man occupied searching and seeking and researching and yes even hoping for the obvious solution to his mind.
Man in general is just smart enough to be very dangerous and even if his brain was dynamite he still could not blow his head off. Yes , you read it right, we indeed use all ,every bit of our brain power, and foolishly think were under achievers and in reality were working over capacity. Our mind operates on series from birth picture thoughts that build and build from day one. Language, body language, vision, are honest short cuts to our labor intensive thought process that has never been in a book before.Mans mind as we learned if via autism is the one- by-one baby thoughts that compile and translate by various means into 'normal ' . There are 5-6 layers of picture thoughts( sub level) that have to work to before normal thought is achieved. Indeed some of the picture thoughts make us Einstein and EVERY human has the Einstein ability in them. Some day we will have the mind mapped and those in special education will be able to have the proper education for once of the internal thought base presented to them and most will come out just fine. Every student could have an Einstein class. Personality issues from serial killers to narcissiam to the odd geeks to the truly normal would all have an explanation. Someday the psychologist will be able to reset the and flip the right switches of a serial killer, make and MR/DD Student thrive.
Man in general has the wrong end of the stick and his mind is so small it is just plain embarrassing to be human. We have spent century upon century on Gilligan's Island (old TV Show reference) and have to be the laughing stock of the planetary system. I doubt there is much worry of a UFO visiting us unless it is for a joke. I fear we might well be the rats in the maze for other beings that might be experimenting with us.
Knowing what I think I know of the human mind our mind is like a IBM 360 Computer (1960's room sized computer) and I'm sure there are more advanced versions of our mind in the solar system. Man to his credit has only gone backwards a little bit with the advent of television and that is because the TV images have taken the place of our thoughts (really) before TV we had more picture thoughts (more of them) and actually were more knowledgeable of the real world. I'm not expecting one word of this to be believed and indeed I'll probably be burned at the stake as what I have written is just beyond description and beyond anything man could ever believe. Keep in mind your mind is just too small and narrow to more than we do. Again IF the 1000 chapters of Psychology or the picture thoughts that make our mind what they are are ever in a text book all the great puzzlers from philosophy will suddenly have honest answers. Man is NOT ready for the truth and never will be so like those before me Like Einstein , Tesla and Turing for example, we will just leave our insight and invention and innovation in the helpless minds of the best of the ignorant peer reviewed and approved professionals to simmer yet another few centuries until our next contemporary is self discovered like we were. Meanwhile man continues to admire us and try to figure out what we have but his limited knowledge base is just beyond the grasp of understanding. Yes,even our Einstein friend gave up on mankind like I have as we realize the odds of our knowledge being aspired let alone understood are just more than any human is capable of doing.
