My research on autism began many years ago. The reason i started researching on this particular subject is because of a conversation I had with a friend about acid. I hadn’t experienced an acid trip yet, but this friend of mine had already attained a scholarly state in tripping and his explanation was so imaginative, that I already knew what it was to trip and to flip.
For those of you who don’t know what an acid trip is, do not try it at home. It’s not the acid that cleans your bathroom. Beware, my aunt died because she had some of it, and god bless her, she had a nasty death.
The theory that autism may be the evolution of human consciousness began when i learnt a little about the autistic brain In the year 2009. It is the fact that doctors and scientists from all over the world have discovered that autistic people have a different brain. It’s called the autistic brain. It’s bigger than the human brain. It’s got more grey matter, which is responsible for feelings like dejavu and what we recognise as long term memory. I learnt this thing about the grey matter in my 12th std. I had taken psychology as the main paper.
It’s been the most interesting subject I’ve wanted to study about, from ever since.
I wish to continue my research on the amygdala as soon as i have the time to continue my scientific research. Right now, my hands are full with law and cinema.
Anyway back to autism. Autism is not a disease, it is a disorder, which as humans, we cannot understand. And therefore the condition has been classified under mental illness which i furiously fight against, because from an autistic persons point of view, it could be us who is mentally ill.
I believe the autistic mind is an advanced brain condition. Science is a growing resource for mankind which serves the thirst for knowledge. Science has developed something called a theory of the mind. As in, we have been told that each person has a mind of their own and that each person’s mind has a different set of thoughts, beliefs, desires and intent. That each person’s mind can only be accessed by introspection and reading another’s mind is equal to magic, therefore, impossible.
Our constitutional law and international civil code is a principle based on this theory, and therefore change in such a belief, would change our entire civilization, the way we think, the reason for existence and would eventually let us question reality itself.
The reason why I think autism is a higher consciousness is because of an autistic persons nature of existence. There’s a test called the Sally-Anne test, for all children. Children who fail this test are classified under the autism spectrum, and the levels are graded to identify the depth of their condition. Now the Sally-Anne test proves the existence or the non-existence of the theory of a mind.
The mind theory is necessary for us humans to accept these children either into our society or to classify them as mentally ill. The test is a simple skit that children are asked to sit and watch. In the end, the children are questioned and their answer determines their life.
In the skit, two dolls are placed each with a basket, and three marbles on the floor. One of the doll is Sally, and the other is Anne. Sally takes the three marbles and keeps it in her basket, she then leaves the basket and goes out for a break. While Sally is away, Anne takes the marble from Sally’s basket and keeps it in her own. Now the question.
When Sally returns where will she look for the marbles.
Where will Sally look for her marbles?
Non-autistic children will say that she will look in Sally’s own basket, but autistic children, will say that she will look in Anne’s basket.
Sally left her basket with the marbles. Is it not natural for her to find the marbles in her own basket? Why would she go looking for it in Anne’s!
The Sally-Anne test not only proves that autistic people do not have a theory of the mind but also proves that they believe in a universal mind. Which in our scientific world, does not exist. It is a fundamental law, according to natural law, that you cannot prove what does not exist.
Autistic people believe in universal consciousness and therefore, they cannot lie to one another, or even understand what it is to be cheated, or to think further, do the many things that humanity does to one each other especially because they believe that no one will know what happens as long as it has been told. My personal explanation to this, is a growth in consciousness. Autism is a higher level of consciousness.
I believe in humans, we still have the ability to see the truth in reality. But as long as science is the only source, to prove or to probe such notions, it is irrational to read other people’s minds, but however such an act can be explained, through the existence of a sub-conscious mind.
Therefore, my explanation to autism, is that, it is equal to a sub-conscious living, only consciously. I believe that they know the universal truth, that they do not think of what others might think, or believe that others may have a different perspective or believe that an idea belongs to them alone.
They may believe in a universal mind, and for the sake of god, let us all think for one moment, what if that is true? What if there is a future for a society of mankind, made of people with a pure, creative and a united conscience. What if?
