sometimes the lines are too straight on the page,
or in the mind, for that matter.

What could this possibly mean?
What do lines on page or in mind represent?

Id guess the lines could be literal lines, as in lined paper. In the mind perhaps the lines that we think between, patterns of thought that prevent us seeing other opportunities.

Or they could be lines of text, poetry or prose.

I like phrases like this that allow for multiple meanings and require some interpretation. I know that most autistic people don't.

the music of the quiet gambler (poem)


Pull the lever.
Repeat.
The stars gather on the screen
The music is lilting, like your father's voice
There is no stirring now, just sounds.
The music of the quiet gambler abounds.

Aha! Linear Thinkers Tend to Be More Systemizing And Analytic.

Aha! Non-Linear Thinkers Tend to Use Free Association and Are More Creative.

A Stereotype is that All 'Higher Functioning' Autistic Folks are of 'STEM Major Ilk;'

However, That's A Stereotype; Actually, in College Majors as Studied, STEM only Comprises about a Third.

You've Met One Autistic Person,
Based on Observable Behavior
Deficits Associated With Reciprocal
Social Communication And Restrictive
Repetitive Special Interests And You've only Met one;

True, There Are Engineers And Those Who Paint Ceilings
of New Sistine Chapels and Sculpt 'David's in Completely Different Ways;

Like that Dude Who Painted 'Jesus' With Long Hair; Whereas, Long Hair Was

Even Against The
Rule in 'That Day,'
By The Words of
A Dude Called Paul
in a 'Big Black Book.'

So, At this Point, i'll Name
Drop A Couple of Real Historical
Figures, Who Actually Left More than Oral Tradition (Per Jesus);

Yes of Course, Michelangelo and DaVinci; So Well Known, Only
A First Name and Last Name Will Be Enough to Identify All Three, Hehe.

Was Einstein A Linear Thinker?

Relatively, Speaking, Hehe, Hell No;

The Dude Used Wonder in Free Association
of Open Minded Imagination; He Thought Out of the

Box So Others

Could See Further
Than Their Boxes;

Of Course, Nature Doesn't Operate

in Linear Ways; Nature Evolves With Creativity;

Our Minds; Particularly, the Left Hemisphere's of Our Minds
Seek to Grasp and Materially Reduce The Environment For Order.

This Reduces Human Anxiety; So, We Build Homes to Live in With
Straight Lines and Angles and Build Cities The Same Way for An Illusion of

Control
Over the Rest
of Non-Linear Nature.

Basically, Reality is Comprised
of Troughs and Crests of Waves;

Hehe, Similar to the Way i am Writing Now;

All Naturally

Per Say And Do;

Per Song and Dance;

Free As Waves Move on the Ocean Front;

Every Shore 'Line' Unique, Creative, and As Real as Real Gets.

If you Need Someone With A 'High Pedigree' to Explain; For Those
With Enough Focus and Attention Span to Last Through a Lecture;

Iain McGilchrist, Is About as Good as It Gets to Explain the Pitfalls

(John Keating [Robin Williams] in the Movie, The 'Dead Poet Society,'
Does A Great Job too)

of Our Western
Civilization Ways

of Materially Reducing
Reality in Linear Ways Of Thinking...

You Could Look Him Up on YouTube and
Even Sit Through and Listen to 28 Volumes
That Summarize a 1500 Page Book He Wrote on the Subject;

This statement suggests that occasionally, adhering strictly to straight lines in both writing and thinking might be limiting or rigid. It implies a preference for embracing creativity and flexibility.

The phrase "sometimes the lines are too straight on the page, or in the mind, for that matter" is metaphorical. It means that sticking too rigidly to conventional or straightforward thinking, represented by "straight lines," can be restrictive.

For instance, if someone is overly literal in their interpretation of information, they might struggle to see beyond the literal meaning of words or concepts. In creativity or problem-solving, this mindset could limit their ability to explore innovative ideas or think outside established boundaries.

In writing, if someone only follows a strict, linear structure without incorporating varied perspectives or styles, their expression may lack depth and nuance. Essentially, the statement encourages a more open-minded and flexible approach to thinking and creativity, suggesting that not everything should conform to a rigid, linear pattern.
