Hmm! I've made a tangled mess of only one man's too many details journey. Such is life, I'm told, but don't accept. Merry Holidays to all!

Good plan planning. I don't have much in the way of others. So I think I'll just watch closely to see what happens, or not, in my me.

My experience was analogous to the reports of some Fortune 500 folks collecting ASD/AS "types" as super-performer, "out-of-the-box" thinkers, jammed into NT managed "miracles might happen" paradigms. Analogous to, but not! With me as the very NT-ed "team's" ac...

For all wanted/needed "things," if they are globally wanted enough, or wanted fixed enough, then it's possible to earn money for doing so. Doing such things unusually, might be AS enough to fit some SI's into such work. But can SI holders be teamed so? And if they can be in principle, will...

Caught in the undefinability trap(s) once again. Such a familiar panicy joy!! So . . . 1) What you would consider it to be for youself. 2) What you would consider it to be for another. 3) What you would consider it to be for all others. 4) What you want your tax $$$'s to pay for. 5) What philosophy-...

If there are any "goals" to my SI's, they're quite vague and illusive. The whole SI thing seems to me to be more a "best natural state of being," and that being is very unique.

It's a great experiment. I hope it turns out that it's a good one for you personally. You have gone over many "others" impacts which is most kind and considerate. Please let us know how it goes. I'm going to do it too, just to see.

Been there. Almost did that. Got well shown I wasn't alone. Got more well shown I could stop/ease others endings. So I didn't, and won't. Nor would I wish you to. There's lot's of unsuffering to do.

When are "Special Interests" Global Interests?"

Or are they ever? Statistically some must be!

I'm still wearing my actual Nam days dog tags, but under my shirt. They for a long time were socially unacceptable. Now they are not even seen; but they go under my shirt anyway. They are very real still, of all that's D, I, V & P to me; but not O, and never shall be. (Perhaps I need to "ac...

I am faking illness and emergency house repairs to avoid the mandated holiday?? Xmas eve family dinner.

My 'interests" are more demands than the word interest would indicate. They are all in paints, pens and pencils on paper and achieve spookily, then plateau in fast learning pauses from what happens on the paper.

It strkes me that my "specisl interests," be they Autistic or not, may be a directed form of very minimslist "being thinkiing." They are very intense, focused and seem quite deep. Their compaction simplification "results" feel like a minimalization formation of "th...
