It makes sense that a musician can express an idea in terms of music. If the hearer doesn’t ‘get it’, that is not any one’s fault, it is just that the hearer doesn’t get it and there is no harm, no foul, no big deal.  The neurosurgeon can convey a point to another quite easily, but to the patient’s family, the doctor seems ‘cold’.  This disconnect in communication and understanding also seen in communications with the autistic. However, until recently the autistic one was faulted for not being able to communicate.

Today with what seems like a surge in autism, the rest of us are starting to gain understanding of what autism is. There may be an understanding of what causes autism too. Of course it takes a investigative reporter’s paper on autism that conveyed to me a better idea and understanding of what may be causing autism and the history of autism and what autism may have looked like in history.

For those of us who cannot subject ourselves to the MSM and AMA lies given in their papers, it is difficult to pin down what exactly is autism and most importantly, what causes it. Many of us screech about the vaccine industry and their culpability (I’m not saying they have none) and about the environmental pollutants, like chemicals in the water, Chemtrails, foods etc. But we really must take an honest look at all the evidence, and gain a better look at what autism is and discover how it may have been a genetic gift.

The following article will also help us understand why all the tech industries are gearing themselves toward what we think is trans-humanism. I reflect on all the science articles and the alarm I felt about the machine oriented desire of these tech companies, and now I understand why they are doing it. While I don’t find the entire motivation to be innocent (for there are evil controllers everywhere) but for the autistic layman in the industry, I can find no fault. Now.

The Geek Syndrome

Autism – and its milder cousin Asperger’s syndrome – is surging among the children of Silicon Valley. Are math-and-tech genes to blame?

By Steve Silberman

Nick is building a universe on his computer. He’s already mapped out his first planet: an anvil-shaped world called Denthaim that is home to gnomes and gods, along with a three-gendered race known as kiman. As he tells me about his universe, Nick looks up at the ceiling, humming fragments of a melody over and over. “I’m thinking of making magic a form of quantum physics, but I haven’t decided yet, actually,” he explains. The music of his speech is pitched high, alternately poetic and pedantic – as if the soul of an Oxford don has been awkwardly reincarnated in the body of a chubby, rosy-cheeked boy from Silicon Valley. Nick is 11 years old.

Nick’s father is a software engineer, and his mother is a computer programmer. They’ve known that Nick was an unusual child for a long time. He’s infatuated with fantasy novels, but he has a hard time reading people. Clearly bright and imaginative, he has no friends his own age. His inability to pick up on hidden agendas makes him easy prey to certain cruelties, as when some kids paid him a few dollars to wear a ridiculous outfit to school.

One therapist suggested that Nick was suffering from an anxiety disorder. Another said he had a speech impediment. Then his mother read a book called Asperger’s Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals. In it, psychologist Tony Attwood describes children who lack basic social and motor skills, seem unable to decode body language and sense the feelings of others, avoid eye contact, and frequently launch into monologues about narrowly defined – and often highly technical – interests. Even when very young, these children become obsessed with order, arranging their toys in a regimented fashion on the floor and flying into tantrums when their routines are disturbed. As teenagers, they’re prone to getting into trouble with teachers and other figures of authority, partly because the subtle cues that define societal hierarchies are invisible to them.

“I thought, ‘That’s Nick,'” his mother recalls.

Asperger’s syndrome is one of the disorders on the autistic spectrum – a milder form of the condition that afflicted Raymond Babbitt, the character played by Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man. In the taxonomy of autism, those with Asperger’s syndrome have average – or even very high – IQs, while 70 percent of those with other autistic disorders suffer from mild to severe mental retardation. One of the estimated 450,000 people in the US living with autism, Nick is more fortunate than most. He can read, write, and speak. He’ll be able to live and work on his own. Once he gets out of junior high hell, it’s not hard to imagine Nick creating a niche for himself in all his exuberant strangeness. At the less fortunate end of the spectrum are what diagnosticians call “profoundly affected” children. If not forcibly engaged, these children spend their waking hours in trancelike states, staring at lights, rocking, making high-pitched squeaks, and flapping their hands, repetitively stimulating (“stimming”) their miswired nervous systems.
