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.
