1. a group of signs and symptoms that together are characteristic or indicative of a specific disease or other disorder
2. a group of things or events that form a recognizable pattern, especially of something undesirable
A syndrome is a group of behaviors that form a recognizable pattern indicative of an undesirable situation.
The question is: Undesirable to whom?
The human mind when encountering unfavorable conditions will react in certain predictable ways. If the resulting behaviors are misinterpreted or not understood, the otherwise normal reaction can seem a mystery and harmful. Attention is focused on the behavior and not on the stimulus; especially if the stimulus is deliberately and artificially in place as an accepted and preferred social norm.
In the case of autism the stimulus is the current manner of thought pervasive in human society. It is a form of social consciousness that is incompatible with the newborn mind.
The mind upon birth is introduced to an external environment it is unprepared for. In order to survive, the infant is asked to adopt behaviors appropriate to the external environment but which go against its own inner consciousness.
The infant mind reacting to the external condition shuts down, withdraws, or develops coping mechanisms in order to maintain its integrity.
The path the infant mind takes all depends on the perceived consequence of error - the severity of the punishment in the case of being wrong. Strength of will also plays a part in this decision. A personality with a strong will is less likely to withdraw. These willful personalities later become the NeuroAdept.
Adept - somebody who is highly proficient or expert at something
The collective set of unique behaviors developed by the willful mind has come to be known as Asperger’s Syndrome.
AS is the autistic mind learning to navigate an alien landscape and being, to a degree, successful.
AS describes the infant personality encountering adverse external conditions and not backing down.

9 And God went on to say: “Let the waters under the heavens be brought together into one place and let the dry land appear.” And it came to be so.
10 And God began calling the dry land Earth, but the bringing together of the waters he called Seas....
2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters.
11 And God said, "Let the earth put forth vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, upon the earth." And it was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
20 And God said, "Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the firmament of the heavens." 21 So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth."
26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth."
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
We have been on the planet for 4 million years and have just recently involved ourselves with an exploration of space beyond our atmosphere. Is not difficult to believe there are civilizations which have been in existence for hundreds of millions of years who are already deeply involved in exploration of space beyond their relative atmospheres, and further, who are currently involved in migratory population experiments akin to the possible Martian Terraforming and subsequent colonization we are now investigating in our own solar system.
Entities traveling the stars do not think or plan in years or centuries, they plan in much larger lengths of time - eras.
An event is arriving that happens every 26,000 years - the alignment of the earth with galactic center exactly at the winter solstice. Perhaps we are due a visit from the holders of the experiment earth; the "God" and the "Angels" who are returning to check on the Terran project.
Perhaps there are experimenters who have been injected into the experiment as observers or Watchers, avataars whose task it is to bear witness and keep a chronicle for future endeavors of a similar nature.
It would make sense to transform a suitable planet, induce a native population, then integrate with the native population to ensure compatibility and the survival of an otherwise alien entity.
In the stellar community physical appearance would not matter as much as the manner of thought - the group mind.
Biology does not separate the human from the animal; it is the manner of thought in each which generates the major differences.
Adam, the First Clone -
It's more likely Eve was genetically engineered first, and then the clone Adam was made using stem cells from the bone marrow of one of her ribs.
In the animal world fetuses are essentially female. The transformation to male comes later in the gestation process so that the male is actually a transformed female. In the absence of males, females can transform themselves and reproduce independent of male input - sharks, honey bees and amphibious frogs for instance.
Science and religion at some time in the past was one and the same thing. The split came when science did away with the supernatural and stated that everything could be explained as natural cause and effect. Whereas religion might say it was the work of a miraculous God, science would say, "We simply do not know yet how it is done, but we will soon discover the process which will explain it."
NASA's Kepler mission has taken its first images of the star-rich sky where it will soon begin hunting for planets like Earth. The new 'first light' images show the mission's target patch of sky, a vast starry field in the Cygnus-Lyra region of our Milky Way galaxy. One image shows millions of stars in Kepler's full field of view, while two others zoom in on just one-thousandth of the full field of view. In one image, a cluster of stars located about 13,000 light-years from Earth, called NGC 6791, can be seen in the lower left corner. The other image zooms in on a region containing a star, called Tres-2, with a known Jupiter-like planet orbiting every 2.5 days.
An interstellar craft traveling at half the speed of light could make the journey to earth from NGC 6791 in 26,000 years.
An event is arriving that happens every 26,000 years. On the winter solstice of 2012, the noonday Sun exactly conjuncts the crossing point of the sun's ecliptic with the galactic plane, while also closely aligning with the exact the center of the galaxy. Some believe it marks the ending of one era and the beginning of another. This will be the fifth such occurrence in the history of Human consciousness.

"You can choose your Destiny but you have to work within the Fate you are given. Fate is a coincidence waiting to happen."
The universe comes into being whole and complete from beginning to end.
It comes into being, but not necessarily into Existence.
That may sound a little confusing, but think about it: Will the universe we experience today be the universe we experience tomorrow? Will everything remain exactly the same, or will things have changed?
Consider a piece of blank paper. The paper is Beingness. If we examine the paper closely we can see it is covered with lightly drawn lines. The lightly drawn lines are Existence. The pattern of the lightly drawn lines is Fate. The pattern is set and cannot be changed; it is an inseparable part of Existence.
The lightly drawn lines, however, can be darkened in. Even though they must follow a set course, the path these potentially dark lines take has not yet been determined. The soon to be darkened lines overlying Fate represent Destiny.
Destiny is a choice of which lines will be darkened in, which paths will be taken and which events will be made to happen as a personal reality.
Destiny is free will to the extent it does not conflict with Fate.
Lines of Fate sometimes connect, so that no matter which Destiny you choose, it leads to the same Fate. I call these instances of multiple connections 'Node Points'.
Node Points hold the web of Existence together. Node Points are common instances of reality that extend across dimensions.
Events at Node Points take on the particular flavor of the environment in which they are experienced.
Node Points 'cut across' dimensions. Where one intersects the material realm, the associated events manifest physically. Where one intersects the Spirit realm, the associated events manifest energetically. In the Psychic realm, associated events manifest clairvoyantly.
The same event occurs across multiple dimensions but the actual experience of the event is greatly influenced by the particular realm upon which it is encountered.

Although it can be said, God has a physical presence through the created form, God has no physical existence.
God is a product of the Mind.
The created form is the physical universe, the observable universe, the universe as we know it.
The created universe came into being whole and complete from beginning to end.
The created universe is a self-sustaining system, and as such, it needs no maintenance. It is whole and complete.
The created universe has a beginning and an end indicated by its involvement with time. Time is made of change - something begins, has duration and ends.
God stands apart from the created form. God's participation is not necessary for Existence to continue. God's participation was only necessary for Existence to begin; thereafter, existence was and is self-sustaining.
Existence is a thought held in God's Mind. Our experience is not that of God, it is of the thought which is held by God.
We cannot know God, but we can know the Thought. In knowing the Thought, we are denied direct knowledge of God. Our human mind, through perception, is directed elsewhere.
We are witnesses to the Thought of Existence within the Mind of God as it becomes whole and complete from beginning to end.
We bear witness to the Thought unfolding in God's Mind through the filter of perception. The unfolding is a Becoming.
The Mind of God is a passive environment; within that passive environment is an unfolding, a dynamic thought of Existence. The dynamic Thought of Existence creates a dynamic relationship. The dynamic relationship is an ongoing dialogue between the observer and the observed.
The Mind is the observer. Anything not identified as being the observer is identified by the mind as being the observed.
The thought associated with the observer is, "I Am That."
The thought associated with the observed is, "I Am Not That."
The observed and the observer taken together represent Existence. The associated thought is, "I Am Also That."
The concept of God is the human mind beginning to realize that everything is part of a consistent self-sustaining system - that all things are essentially one thing.
This realization of central unity is sometimes called God-Consciousness.

In this blog I promote two ideas:
The idea that Existence is the work of an intelligent presence.
The idea that Existence is the interpretation of a raw undifferentiated substance.
Both ideas can be expressed by picturing a spectrum.
At one end of the spectrum place the reality we experience directly through perception.
At the opposite end place a state of beingness about which we can be aware of and about which we can speculate, but about which we can actually know nothing.
In the gradient between, place Existence.
In the Void just before the beginning of Existence, place the Creator Mind. In the occupied space just after the beginning of Existence, place the Creator God.
The image of God is formed through the Mind's recognition of Existence as being an ordered, consistent and self-sustaining reality.
God has no Physical Existence -
If God exists, then Existence has to come before God. If God comes before Existence, then God cannot be said to exist. The same statement is valid if you want to say that God goes beyond considerations of time and space, since time and space are conditions of existence.
God exists as a concept -
The Mind experiences a consistent self-sustaining system and evokes the intelligent presence of a Creator God.
God is a product of the Mind.
First Cause -
An adequate description of Existence requires a different way of thinking. The human mind is designed to look for a cause to explain any effect. It assumes there must be a First Cause that explains the existence of everything. The problem is that the question can always be asked, "But what caused the First Cause?"
And to that there is no answer. The mind must accept that it is possible for an event to occur spontaneously, without any cause.
This is how Beingness appeared out of a Chaotic state of Nothingness as the first instance of Awareness. It appeared spontaneously, without any cause.
Given the infinite potential
for Something to appear out of Nothing,
Given the infinite potential
for Something to appear out of Nothing,

My Latest Toy!
Live Scribe is an ink pen and audio recorder. It records everything you write, scribble and draw along with audio. You can play it back from anywhere, search what you wrote and share your recordings and notes with others. You can turn your notes into digital text and edit them on the computer. That's right - it’s a computerized pen that gives handwritten notes audio support!
Live Scribe Pulse Smart Pen
The 2GB pen is $199, 1GB is $149. Ink refills cost $5.95 for a multipak.
Try to get it on sale and save some bucks. I got mine at Target.
The Smart Pen requires a special "dot paper" and the papers come in a variety of styles and sizes from journals to flip pads; inside they look like regular lined or blank pages with the added menu at the bottom of each page. Tap the menu with the pen and you get available options. In a pinch you can even draw your own menu and use that one.
Livescribe Dot Paper -
The Smart Pen requires Livescribe™ dot paper. This paper is standard paper with printed microdots on its surface. The dots are nearly invisible to the human eye, but the Smart Pen can easily see them through the ink you write on your pages and uses them to know the particular page you are writing and the exact location on that page.
Smart Pens are really cool.

A non-religious non-scientific look at how things got here...
* Time is an envelope in which Change takes place - when Mind forms an association to Sequence, you get an envelope of Time.
* Time is Change perceived.
* An Event is an incident of Change. It requires an observer and Sequence. Change is produced as successive stages of Becoming are perceived by the Mind.
* Mind is the Consciousness as a Dynamic Entity. The entity's dynamic aspect is the interplay of Difference. The interplay of Difference forms Existence.
The Purpose of Existence :
The Mind's Intention is to reconcile the appearance of Difference - to heal the rift between Awareness and the Chaos of Nothingness.
Various ways Mind projects the Intention :
Etheric - the Mind's association to Matter.
Spirit - the Mind's association to Energy.
Change - the Mind's association to Sequence.
Time - the Mind's association to Change.
Difference - the Mind's association to Awareness.
Consciousness, as it applies to Mind, is the recognition of Difference.
The Consciousness itself, IS the Difference.
Awareness in the Human Mind is the ability to discern Presence.
Consciousness in the Human Mind is the ability to discern Difference.
Perception in the Human Mind is the ability to discern separate elements of Existence.
Intellect in the Human Mind interprets separate elements of Existence. Intellect, however, does not address the accuracy of its interpretation.
Intelligence in the Human Mind is measured in accordance with its ability to successfully employ the Intellect but not necessarily with its ability to employ Truth.
Truth is a function of the gnostic mind which gathers the direct knowledge contained within Etheric envelopes of Life and Spirit envelopes of energy.
[The above applies to the Human Mind only. Information regarding the microbial, plant and animal perspective is not available.]
"People comfort themselves with the idea of God
because the reality of God is terrifying."
God-Consciousness, or Enlightenment, is attained after years of diligent pursuit, usually when a person has reached mature adulthood.
It involves a slow process of destroying the Ego and undoing a lifetime of social programming, religious dogma, and philosophic misconceptions.
What if there were people, a new wave in the human population, that were born Enlightened? Not ascended masters or incarnated avatars, but ordinary people untainted by socially normal behavior? People who thought differently right from the beginning.
This is going to sound controversial, but....
"The autistic spectrum is the human mind reacting to an alien environment."
Autistic Evolution -
NeuroTypical - the humans currently setting the social norm.
NeuroSeeded - the humans who have internalized a Divine message and who have, for the most part, withdrawn from social interaction.
NeuroAdepts - the humans who have externalized a Divine message and who are seeking a method of its social integration.
* NeuroAdept - Expresses a Divine Message in the present lifetime.
The gaze is external.
* NeuroSeeded - Expresses a Divine Message in a future lifetime.
The gaze is internal.
Method : How Autistic Evolution Happens
You have two kids lying in the crib, side by side. They both get the same message.
In one of them, the message takes, it makes complete sense relative to the present environment. The mind integrates the provided information and adjusts its development accordingly.
In the other, the message doesn't take, the provided information makes no sense at all relative to the present environment and it drives the mind crazy. The mind, in self defense, retreats.
Information is sent out to the infants as they are just born. It is a Divine Message which describes the nature of Existence.
The target is the latent Ego lying dormant within the infant's mind. The message is an image of Existence which places the Ego in a subordinate position.
Some infants adjust and develop a NeuroAdept profile; the Ego accepts the surrounding social environment and seeks to integrate itself.
Some infants adjust differently and develop a NeuoSeeded profile; the Ego rejects the surrounding social environment and seeks to insulate itself.
Some infants are not offered the information at all and continue to develop a NeuroTypical profile; the Ego remains unaffected.
The choice as to who is offered the information is completely arbitrary, it is a cosmic roll of the dice and should not be viewed as an indication of reward or punishment. It falls under the heading of Fate.
Why did it become necessary?
It became necessary to establish communication from within the human mind instead of from without; information filtered through the intellect and perception is not trusted. Knowledge is direct instead of inferred.
NeuroTypicals have a tendency to add information, to 'read between the lines' or 'fill in the gaps'. This ability to read between the lines marks many of their decisions. Any raw truth is immediately subjected to interpretation. Divine messages are distorted, its original intent is lost or diluted.
That is why NeuroTypicals rely so much on symbolism and social gestures. More attention is paid to the accompanying symbols and gestures than is paid to the verbal communication.
NeuroTypicals think alike. They have the same strategy of survival, cognition is similar across minds. In any basic survival situation, a NeuroTypical will pretty much react the same as other NeuroTypicals.
The NeuroTypical mind decodes information into what it knows and is familiar with; it attempts to preserve the established pattern.
This makes NeuroTypicals generally predictable - if you know how to read them - because the blueprint is in their minds.
The NeuroDiverse do not have these social blueprints. Their behavior and manner of thought is generally unpredictable.
Unpredictable means spontaneous.
Tips for the NeuroDiverse -
NeuroTypicals do not tell the truth, either in their actions or their words. They all know this. It is a matter of survival because everything is seen as a threat to their well-being.
Statements are credible to the degree the individual making them is willing to expend the energy necessary for supporting verbal, bodily and emotional gestures. This emphasis on gesture display is sometimes called 'drama'.
NeuroTypicals are basically insecure. They feel uncertain about their place in the world. They always think someone is going to take their food.
Morals are set on the basis of what is good [for me] and what is bad [for me]. The process is automatic.
God, the ultimate good, is always viewed as being on 'my' side.
Who or what is providing the Divine Message?
That is a mystery.
The message may be a condition of Existence and is just now coming to realization, but from within the human mind instead of from external sources filtered through the intellect and perception - direct knowledge instead of inferred knowledge.
What is it?
The message is one of universal oneness and unity. It explains how all things are one thing without separation; the substance underlying reality is simultaneous and lacking in differentiation.
One thing I remember in particular was the idea of hard and soft at the same time. This came in the form of floating pillows, upon one of which was me. The pillows were accompanied by a great many whispering voices all saying different things;and darkness with visibility - there was no light and no light source, but I could see in a way, nevertheless. Perhaps things contained their own illumination - an internal light.
There was the hard-and-soft pillows, the visible-darkness, the whispering many-voices and me.
The NeuroDiverse Perspective -
The Ego at its infancy stage of development is offered a choice:
A Fifth Dimension perspective of Simultaneity or a Fourth Dimension perspective of Individuality through Separation.
A Fifth Dimensional perspective of Simultaneity can incorporate a Fourth Dimensional perspective of Individuality through Separation; the reverse, however, is not often true.
The NeuroDiverse Mind can go where the NeuroTypical Mind cannot go.
To the NeuroDiverse, the NeuroTypicals seem to be the ones insane.

thinking /think·ing/ (thingk´ing) ideational mental activity (as opposed to emotional activity).
autistic thinking - preoccupation with inner thoughts, daydreams, fantasies, private logic; egocentric, subjective thinking lacking objectivity and connection with external reality.
dereistic thinking - thinking not in accordance with the facts of reality and experience and following illogical, idiosyncratic reasoning.
magical thinking - that characterized by the belief that thinking or wishing something can cause it to occur.
1 the cognitive process of forming mental images or concepts.
2 the process of cognitive problem solving through the sorting, organizing, and classification of facts.
autistic means "self-generated without reference to external reality."
Some people will argue that reality is constructed within the mind:
"While the universe merely provides the raw material, it is actually the mind which forms the formless into a dimension of material existence. Reality is within ourselves and nowhere else."
If we hold divine experience to be of a similar make, we can say God is autistic.
The autistic experience is pure God-Consciousness looking inward. The thought is, "I Am That".
This pure God-Consciousness externalized naturally is the NeuroAdept mind. The thought is, "I Am Also That".
When the experience of reality is interpreted and given multiple layers of meaning, the NeuroTypical mind is created.
The NeuroTypical mind is the autistic mind having undergone Complexity. The thought is, "I Am Not That".
The NeuroTypical mind is an outgrowth of the autistic mind. It is a Becoming; it looks outwards toward Source.
The NeuroAdept mind is also an outgrowth of the autistic mind and as such it, too, is a Becoming which looks outwards toward Source.
The autistic mind, however, is a Returning; it looks inwards toward Source.
The autistic mind is nearer the Mind of God.
