Thought Experiment - 'The Matrix Dilemma'

Okay, so just a little thought experiment to get you clever and creative folks discussing...

Morpheus sits you down and places a small green pill in front of you saying how it will instantly and painlessly 'cure' you of your autism, giving you the neurotypicality you would've had from birth, had things been different.

Do you take the pill?

  • Given that I attribute nearly every milestone in human invention to autism, I would say no. Also all of my ancestors going back at least 300 years have strongly autistic traits (with both positive and negative effects very evident in every generation). Therefore for me, autism is a racial trait not a disorder.

    I think it must be totally dull to be NT, making lots of small-talk while not understanding how anything complicated works.
