Climb Every Mountian
My Successful Autism:
Climb every mountain, search high and low,follow every by-way, every path you know.
Unknown to me or my family was my undiscovered Autism that had colored and changed our lives. Thankfully even the experts of Nosinger Center of Ohio State (this was 1966) had no clue to contemporary autism and as such I was able to so the Autism Dream like it had worked so well so long before. I was one of the last to sneak by with out the troubling autism Diagnosis. Autism is both Mr/DD and Einstein and a never in print before human thought process that WILL produce normal thoughts when figured out. We followed every path we knew and invented a few we didn't.
Climb every mountain, ford every stream,follow every Rainbow till you find your dream.
Autism in the dark ages was sell correcting self producing and very nerve racking for the parents and ,teachers and tutors as well as my self. We ALL kept going because every once in a awhile the genius bit would show threw and gave every one hope. In my case the Rainbow "somewhere Over the Rain Bow" and the Gay Identity I was allowed to nurture created a social skills class every autistic person needs to jump the gap between normal and autism. Someday when all of our 1000 chapters in explained Autism are figured out, by the psychology experts this identity thing will make perfect sense.
A dream that will need ,all the love you can give, everyday of your life,for as long as you live.
I was so lucky to grow up with the perfect family that never quit teaching or caring or allowing me to explore and make mistakes and be in the real world. (yes even drive) If I had been diagnosed perhaps they would have given up? Perhaps they would have never seen the hard won joys and the odd glowing moments that motivated us all. I fear contemporary Autism students have the very same moments and they go unnoticed and un apprecated by the autism 'machine' created to help, but doesn't.
The song goes on in much the same lyrics as these. My point is Autism is the last stage (or the first stage) of the human mind . It is the roots to psychology and for sure when figured out the next 1000 chapters in psychology. Autism is the long hand version of human thought and takes place in the dream and daydream mode and it actually cancels out our optic vision (lack of eye contact) . Once we learn to think with the picture thoughts they become normal short cut thoughts like you want us to use. The same thoughts you use all the time.
Meanwhile they are Einstein ideals and if we tap them they are inventions like autistics Alan Turing's Computer. Social functioning regular autism people are even in the mix as well, blending in a geeks in plain sight typically. Remember we are still trying to figure out Di Vinci hundreds of years after his death. The normal mind has no clue to any of this as normal people are just that normal and since they are normal they can't relate to their own deep thoughts or ours. Glossed over normal thought every one uses all the time is just a glossary and pure working autism thoughts (picture thoughts) are a dictionary.
Sadly autism thougths as good as they are/ are NOT the perfect answer or the expected keystone to man's mind. In fact they are very primitive very cavepersonish and not very impressive. All humans think in pictures (daydreams) and never even know it as that bit is what was glossed over so we could function better. If psychology knew all the Picture Thoughts Temple Grandin talked about and added ours that build on hers to the mix and seen how they convert to your normal short cut thoughts the mind would no longer be a puzzle nor would autism be a puzzle. Warning the resulting explanation will not be good for man's ego it will hit a bit too close to home and show us just how much of a cave person we still are.
