A New Way of Thinking

From the web ...


Asperger’s Syndrome is a “high functioning” form of Autism Spectrum Disorder. A diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome can be synonymous with a diagnosis of High Functioning Autism (HFA) and individuals diagnosed with AS, HFA, and other closely-related neurological disorders benefit equally from the support and service provided by Portland Aspergers Network.

Studies conclude that the incidence of Asperger’s Syndrome has increased by epidemic proportions in recent years. In the past two decades the ratio of an Autistic Spectrum Disorder diagnosis has escalated from one child in ten thousand to one child in two hundred fifty.

There is no cure for AS. The cause remains unknown. There is a prevailing belief that the combination of genetic factors and environmental triggers contributes to the probability of diagnosis. Regardless of its origin—its existence is a painfully real and rapidly growing problem in every country in the world. Attention to this issue is imperative as this growing sect of the world’s population emerges into adulthood.

OK. Whatever.

I'm thinking that this thing they are calling 'Asperger's Syndrome' is simply a new way of thinking about Reality and Existence. It is not a disorder at all. It is an advancement in the mind's evolution. Autism and Asperger's Syndrome are two separate occurrences of the same thing; one of which took, and the other of which didn't.

I will not focus on the autism side of the argument since I have no experience with it. I shall instead present a picture of Existence from the point of view of a gnostic Asperger with a special interest in ontology and the paranormal.

As always, we will work from within the An'Kareen environment and ask the assistance of the Uv-taar modabid for this blog instead of my usual channel Anne Karin - sorry Anne.

Stick around, though. This should be interesting.
