OMG I'm so excited!! Check this out! Ken Wilber is one of my heroes, so this is huge for me.

IntegralLife

I don't think he has AS, because I don't think there are any developmental issues, but clearly evolution is at work in us still.

I just figure everyone that lies has a reason for it, even if they themselves don't consciously know. Neurotypicals seem to do it by reflex to certain situations in order to preserve the self, even if, logically speaking, it makes no sense to do so. The aspie subconscious seems more open, so we mor...

[off topic] I suspect that many Aspies hear voices. My b/f does too. And I think you're right. It's just the way your mind contains or holds that alternate Voice so you can put on perspectives that are also you're own, but which may confuse others (or yourself) if you express them all at once. My b/...

Yes, I understand, Rok. There is occasionally life after High School. There are many social scenes which intentionally reinforce and continue the social dynamics of High School in "adult life" but those can be avoided for the most part. Social scenes which are designed to reinforce kindness and inte...

I hold conversations in my head very well. I'll split my mind up into objective viewpoints and debate things. Usually there's the vindictive, the sage, the innocent, and the willful. They all communicate extremely well. When I talk to others I'll take on a particular aspect I feel is best suited to...

i don't understand why people do that. It's one of the key reasons I can't make friends. I always have that subconscious feeling that they're going to deceive me. Just tell yourself that they're the ones missing out on a loyal and great friend. I'm sure it's a true statement, so if you tell yoursel...

This made me laugh too as I've noticed this before.

I suspect that the count is taken just prior to your own download, so if you refresh after poking around a bit, you'll show up. Try it.

This is fantastic. I was just reading the wiki page on Cognitive Dissonance which I got to from their page on Spindle Neurons and have skimmed an interesting article here: Intuition and Autism: a possible role for Von Economo nerons . Yes, I think I see now. Aside from the usual tendency for science...

Oh, you poor thing. LOL This has got to be one of the most common of all human experiences. I feel much more connected to you since you have that experience also. Some Mothers don't know when their job is done . Their identity is confused with their job and they can't stop or they might disappear or...

Okay, Stinkypuppy, I think it's time to stop. You're exaggerating my position to make your point and your argument seems more about disallowing me to make my point than learning or teaching something. That tells me we're done with this discussion. Besides, I've succeeded in making my point. I'm sorr...

So, I'm gonna put some extra emphasis on the phrase "When an NT wants you to want to ..." In other words, they are not satisfied if you just stop talking and nod your head every once in a while and it's obvious you're bored. I'm not just talking about party-chat. I'm talking about a close or even be...

Sorry, Stinkypuppy, but I disagree partly. You're assuming I'm making an assumption that I'm not. I'm not talking about the US. Nor am I talking about any one Nation specifically. I'm talking about Evolution. Spiral Dynamics - EnlighteNext Some parts of Western Europe are far ahead of the US in this...

So, your first deflection is now ignored since I countered it successfully? The more informed and "civilized" you claim to be, the more responsibility you will be required to bear for your actions. No doubt you are cunning. But also somewhat naive. Parts of Eastern Europe may be like what we here ha...

In this way, for starters: "When I get really dangerous though, is when I am smiling. That is warning sign. That means I am ready to think about making physical assault. I relax my face and smile before I get angry." Memorizing laws and rules and understanding only their obvious meanings does not pr...

And I've been shunned for saying that sometimes Aspies can be dangerous. :roll: Sometimes AS creates a complete lack of conscience of how not okay certain behavior is. And worse, it creates a corresponding inappropriate defensiveness when this person suffers consequences of this not okay behavior. T...
