If this is a Wrong Planet, where social life is structured from neurotypicality, what would a planet be like, a social order (if the term fits), in which autistic neurodivergence (I know that under those conditions it would no longer be called divergent) predominates in social life?

I'm always looking up why people do things that they do.

Hard to tell. As it stands autistic traits seem to vary from culture to culture. Autistic trait expression may well vary based on numerous yet unknown environmental factors that will vary from place to place assuming heterogenity all over the planet in question. Will the same be the case on another planet?

Probably not that different, given that we've all learned to socialize primarily from NTs.

I'd like to think it would be a place that is easier to navigate, if people just said what they mean. Even if it was blunt, it's a lot less exhausting than trying to figure out if someone wants to interact or if they are finding me bothersome. And if people used rational thought to make decisions, it seems like the world would be a lot less topsy-turvy. Maybe that's just wishful thinking.

Low organization leads to low society, and high intelligence leads to high technology. Maybe religion or autocracy will become the best system.Maybe it's easyer to communicate directly。

I'd like to think it would be a place where people were honoured for living by the code "no BS, no lies, just getting the job done".

I agree with this. I'm not a fan of religion.

A world of WYSIWYG. Logic and straightforward communication. Where do I get tickets? (I want to take my wolfies along)
