Autistic behavior is a form of communication. I'm about to take that statement further and show you the significance behind autistic behavior.
 
For me, autism means that my mind is a vast open space where all my knowledge runs free with my hyper-connected brain. Most people are born with instructions to function on this planet – not me. I can't think within parameters that I can't see. It is like being asked to think outside of a box you didn't know you were inside of. Free-range thinking translates into free-range behavior.
 
Not seeing borders can manifest itself in difficulties understanding boundaries, and ...

They put you in a birdcage?

Or is it a typo for "co-op"?

I like the article. I've lived in two countries, Wales and England. I've stayed for a week in Scotland and had a few other short holidays there. I had one little holiday in Ireland. Have also been on holiday to America, Canada and France. I've often thought what holds back human beings is an overvaluation of our national identity. I have read a lot of websites about people who move abroad and how they feel about it. It's clear every country has strengths and weaknesses.. Germany is quite wealthy but at times boring and too strict. France is civilized and cultured but can stick its nose up at those it doesn't approve of.

America is an open and vastly talented country but can be immature. England is practical but tends to forge ahead with ideas without looking fully at all the options, which has led to us having large numbers of causes and people abandoned by "the big picture". The Spanish are friendly yet rarely do things on time. Italians are food gods and have innovated a lot but they are too religious and their culture allows corruption too easily. Swiss are almost perfect but they're too cold and formal, they run the country marvellously, however getting to know them is almost impossible. Scandinavians are very fair minded, however they can be too attached to childhood friends and have a small town mentality, not always embracing bold new ideas (with the exception of ones relating to helping others via welfare). Australians are fun, warm and generally have a sense of fairness, however they're also inverse snobs who often hate old world class, even the good parts like classical music and literature. They often have no concern for the environment as well.

Those are some basic observations. If every country was open to criticism and wanted to learn from others we would all benefit.

That was a lovely article, thanks for posting.
I really resonate with a lack of understanding about boundaries and borders, and creating my own rather than accepting those which society tells me are 'normal.'
For example, when I was younger I used to group people into two colours- either a warm orange or a cool blue. I've gotten out of the habit of this now but, if I think about it, I can still easily do the same with people today.
So yeah, there's not much point in my reply haha apart from me wanting to say that I completely understand what you're saying. Having to fit in with society's boundaries is tiring and, frankly, rather boring. So it's nice that other people feel a similar way

I've never believed in categories. I've always judged people by their personalities and characters, instead of their genders. I also like to do many styles of paintings, drawings and sketches. I can't stick to just one style. Another type of thinking that I do is thinking in colour. I put things that I think are sweet and kind in the green category. I put things that are cool and calming in the blue category. I put the things that make me feel disgust or anger in the pink category. I put things that energize me and rev me up in a good way in the red category. I put things that cheer me up and make me laugh in the yellow category. I put things that wind me down and make me tired in the black category, because that's the colour of night. I put things that inspire me in the white category, because white is where all the colours eventually end up on.
