Curse You Rain Man ,,,,,
I know those are not words or thoughts that make me any friends especially in this autism age but please hear me out... Autism Before Rain Man was one the road to being solved. Then the Rain Man Era got a hold of the wrong end of the stick and made a mountain from a mole hill and regrettably lost track of the real autism the autism that is BOTH MR/DD and Einstein.
Normal researchers have never made the leap we have from the bottom of the gene pool up to the normal thoughts of life and as such I can assure you ALL autism research is a farce,,, but a peer review and approved farce so that makes it "OK". No Autism Researcher has had to teach themselves the picture thoughts that we had to. Those Picture thoughts Temple Grandin talks about and WE build on are the very keystone to all of man's mind. No researcher has seen the light , the glory ,the success of connecting those lack of eye contact thoughts to normal ones. No researcher has a clue to what our normal is and when we finally learned how to completely think in Pictures it makes us function. If they did they would know the next 1000 chapters in Psychology. Everything we did to over come Autism is also the blueprint for the mind and man is so stupid he is smart but not smart enough to ever realize he naturally thinks in short cuts and thus it is the reason why psychology and medicine are so inept.
Our Picture thoughts fully developed make us Einstein and Di Vinci and Turing (father of the computer) among others but even though contemporary autism has its heart in the right spot, it has made autism loose track of the real point to the condition and that means man kind is once again cheating himself out of the cornerstone thoughts that make man's mind work. If those thoughts are not figured out they make us group home material and give a lot of researchers a job pointing the finger at the obvious parts of autism and all the while as usual missing the entire point.
Our complete living anthropology of people mostly older that missed Rain Man era antics that build on and have figured out Temple Grandin's picture thoughts, are blackballed from autism as the peer review can't explain or tolerate our real life success. Our autism figured out is NOT the knowledge contemporary autism wants to know about ,let lone admit to- it will cripple contemporary autism starting from the late Dr. Rimland to the modern 'greats of autism' . The knowledge base we figured out has never been in a text book before and we learned it on our own. If ONLY a few other researchers knew it and would give us the time of day (not likely) Autism could be reduced to a grade one threw six school where we could emerge from the grips of autism totally able to cope and even catch a ball and do sports. It would also ignite the passion of our splinter skills and the Einstein side of all of us would shine. Remember autism is MR/DD and Einstein but until (a hard sell) one researcher makes the same connection we have autism is doomed to the Walk- a- thon. Think of all the humanity that is wasted with this research mis conduct?
Ironically everything that was good and worked for us , when we over came autism by happenstance is today mostly labeled taboo,, see what happens when normal thinkers try (so hard) to figure out what have but they have never had a different kind of human thought process. In the end Autism is nothing more than the long hand version of human thought and man doesn't even understand his current shorthand version of the mind.
