I would like to start this with the quote of the day (in my life): "the people here are not out to break you" I got a job in Korea after a long time looking elsewhere. I am the only westerner in my research group and I don't speak Korean. I do research at a University. Am I screwed? Anything but. I ...

This discussion reminds me of Socrates Allegory of the Cave.

I know we would say it's them attached to the wall.

But they would say it's us.

Socrates was an Aspie and came up with it, so he would probably side with us.

But we know what happened to Socrates...

They have to warp you to feel better about themselves. If they feel good about themselves they don't need to change you. That's the sort of people I like to hang out with. If you work out who has tried to manipulate you, pretend they are still manipulating you (play along), but when they leave, igno...

I apologise. I didn't mean my reply to be quite so blunt. I didn't mean to hurt you. Don't stop yourself from letting your feelings out, or feeling you can talk freely here, due to an idiot like myself. You didn't say anything offensive, I understood it badly. I didn't take into consideration how lo...

I read somewhere that Aspies are also noted for the differences from one another rather than their similarites. However, I find in this site that a lot of other people have the same problems and the same way of understanding things. I think that the fact that all of us struggle with this makes us s...

I found the notion of the interbrain in these forums. It's along the lines of communal conscious, where subconscious information is transmitted between people, kind of like the internet, to make a certain layer of our brain that is shared. I think Aspies are on a separate interbrain. How many people...

don't they speculate newton had asperger?. I think it's pretty much accepted he was. and fyi, alchemy has nothing to do with the history of modern chemistry, which was developed primarily from quantum mechanics in the early 20th century. ><. It depends what you mean by "modern chemistry". There are...

The way I was used to really get to me. So I fought myself. So I despised myself. But it's just me in here. I can't kick me out. I turned me into a nightmare. An inescapable nightmare. So much of me was spent on trying to destroy me. And I found the reason for loathing myself was that I loathed myse...

I think the empathy holes cause us to generate these moral bases so we don't hurt people. We have to work things out with some kind of rationale, rather then just instinctively "knowing". I have no problems with the ability to empathize in many ways, but this is different to feeling empathy. Empathi...

shocking - depends on your predisposition.

I sometimes think about this thing. A non-computer example is a glass of water with some soluble dye mixed in. Unfathomable combinations occur every second but we don't notice the difference. It's just coloured water rather than a visible plethora of shapes formed by dye molecules. The dye "unmixing...
