One more thing..... The ‘New’ media was actually invented by ASD folk. As was anything that has changed the world over history of humanity. Indeed - the world stands on autistic shoulders. The NTs are tooooooo social to actually get anything useful done. They’d be swinging in the trees still or living in caves if it wasn’t for the ASD gene
This is actually an interesting thought. Through the years of working with teenagers on the spectrum, I've been attending a lot of presentations with a swedish psychologist called Bo Hejlskov. He proposes that one possible step in the human evolution might be that people with neuropsychiatric variances "force" out the neurotypical genepool, since humanity needs solutions to major problems, which means a need for people to be totally focused on the problem at hand - something I've personally seen in many of the teenagers I work with. Focus, interest and creativity.
Interesting contribution to the discussion!
Yes - also I’m a natural disaster, or catastrophe.
NTs will run around screaming and die - even kill each other to survive (yuk)
In life or death situations for me time slows down and my mind suddenly becomes more efficient than ever. That’s why I can pass tests with ease. I’ve been there many times with my water sports - pushing boundaries to the limits, world firsts. I swim in places that would simply kill a normal person. I surf over jagged reefs with sharp metal spikes sticking up in places where you have to climb cliffs to get to them and a simple injury would be fatal. All the NTs surf in crowds on beach breaks.
