I have been speaking with an old friend about one of his consciousness expanding drug experiences and he has kindly agreed to do an interview for a future podcast.
We noted during our conversation that his experience more than likely mirrored the experience of someone with classic autism. He is not the first person I have spoken to about this and is unlikely to be the last.
He basically lost all sense of reality, melted into and entered the void.
Don’t worry, he wasn’t driving.
Then I suggested that there was significant irony in the fact that human beings strive to achieve oneness while at the same time striving to cure autism and have people who are experiencing the oneness, people with no conscious understanding of the illusion of reality, be like us.
This is possibly a delicate area, particularly for someone who has a severely autistic child.
Has our culture got it all wrong?
As an Aspergerian, I have spent years conditioning myself to communicate with neuro-typical people and do a very good job of it.
In learning, I have even understood neuro-typical problems and can act as an interpreter between the neuro-tribe and the aspie-tribe.
I communicate well with both groups.
If only there were someone who could interpret for classic autism?
Then perhaps we wouldn’t need Osho?
See you on the other side of the looking glass,
