The Beauty and Curse of Abstract/Visual Thinking

I am an abstract/visual thinker.  I am also a polymath and a genius.  I am what you call neuro-diverse because I don’t think like many people. I’ve been that way since I was born. The strange thing was that my performance Intelligence Quotient was off the chart. I bet Temple’s is, too.

As a child, my hero was Albert Einstein.  I was so very little.  Unlike Temple, I read fluently before reaching 1st grade.  See—we are all very different.

In 2nd grade, I decided to give a talk on African Sleeping Sickness—go figure.  I wrote an article about that here:

African Sleeping Sickness and the 7-year-old Me

.

So the bottom line is that some of us are just born pretty damned smart.  Still—we have a hard time fitting in, so we are called neuro-diverse.

.

Dr. Grandin’s story is astounding.  Mine should have been, too.  But they brain-damaged my babies with their baby shots in the 1970s and that put my life on hold for a half-century.

For a long time, I thought my neuro-diversity had damaged my babies.  It did not.  There were many children with the same problems back in the day

Thousands and thousands and tens thousands of children are now damaged by these shots.  Industry is trying to ramp up the problem with the COVID shot.  But I can follow the science and understand just what these shots do.  Look at my blog to find out:

'This Side of Life'

‘This Side of Life’

Social Issues, Fiction, NonFiction

I have many observations on different aspects of the shots.  Take time because if you don’t, they could destroy everything you love, too—just like me.

.

.

.

But I rail at Dr. Grandin calling so many things thing autism.  Enormous amounts of neurotoxins are now being injected in babies from the time of conception.  Vaccine-Induced Brain Damage is not autism—it’s Vaccine-Induced Brain Damage.

When I look at what many other alphabets have done or not done, I think of Dr. Temple Grandin.  She changed slaughterhouse processes to keep the animals calm and compliant before the livestock was killed.

I’m sure Dr Grandin never intended her work to be applied to us.  But psychology has been my life for a very long time and I can recognize the behavioral patterns that parallel between humans and livestock.

And all these people need to do is a press release, and ‘name recognition’ does the rest.  Our bloggers will lead the livestock to the killchute.

About Temple Grandin

“Everything in my mind works like a search engine set for the image function.” – Temple Grandin in 2008, from an oral history at  Colorado State University

Hear more interview outtakes and learn more about Temple Grandin @ http://blankonblank.org/temple-grandin

You’ve probably heard the story that Einstein – whose name is synonymous with genius – didn’t seem destined for much when he was a small child. He was years behind other children when it came to learning to talk, he did horribly in school. It seems that Einstein’s brain just worked differently than most other people’s. And many people these days are saying that Einstein was probably autistic – one of them is Temple Grandin.

Temple Grandin is a professor of animal sciences who’s worked in the meat industry to invent kinder ways to lead cattle to slaughter. She’s also autistic – the high-functioning version known as Asperger’s Syndrome. Autism, in case you don’t know, is a brain disorder that tends to affect people’s social skills, like the ability to read facial expressions and body language, but it can also mean extraordinary talent in math, music and the visual arts.

Temple Grandin has become something of a celebrity of autism. She’s written books, given TED talks, and she’s been around the world to speak on the subject. Claire Danes has even played her in a movie about her life.

As part of our special series, The Experimenters–where we uncover interviews with the icons of science, technology, and innovation…– we found this interview in the holdings of Colorado State University, where Temple teaches. In this conversation, Temple’s at her best, explaining for the rest of us what it’s really like to have an autistic brain and how Einstein’s not the only genius who could have been dismissed for being different.

Where it’s true Dr. Grandin’s life has been amazing, this article is not about autism.  This article is about Neuro-Diversity and autism fits in one small niche.

I am autodidactic.  I learn and learn and learn.  My visual and polymathic abilities are but a small part of what I do.

I, too, treasure Tesla’s work but see him more as neuro-diverse than autistic.

But Dr. Grandin’s work with lifestock may very well be the end of us.  Those killing us with the shots that have been around in the US since 1971 think of us as “The Herd.”

Again:

I’m sure Dr Grandin never intended her work to be applied to us.  But psychology has been my life for a very long time and I can recognize the behavioral patterns that parallel between humans and livestock.

And all these people need to do is a press release, and ‘name recognition’ does the rest.  Our bloggers will lead the livestock to the kill-chute—and we are the livestock.  Those who view us as lesser beings view us as nothing more than livestock—I  believe they started doing this a long time ago.
