Well I don't think autistic people are the next step of evolution. But if there are more evolved people among us, I kinda pity them. Even assuming they have superior intellect and skills, they are isolated and trapped as a subspecies within a slightly more primitive species.
Most of them may never know of the existence of others like them. They never fit into the normal world. They would have to forsake their own logic for the more inferior one of the masses in order to fit in. Despite having superior abilities, they will never be at the top, because as we well know, getting ahead in the world is not about what you know but who you know.
And they will not breed because they will be ronery. And we are not like ourselves back in the animal days where one can just fuck someone and reproduce via rape.
This pretty much. And i'd rather saywe're a POSSIBLE START to evolution. If anything we're just as far as you say a subspecies.
I wouldn't say that. If you take a minute to stalk his activity you'll actually see traces of intelligent points here and there, but for whatever reason 90% of his energy seems to be going into putting off others around him...
Silly creature~ I wonder what his motivations are. :3
QI tweeted an great quote from Einstein the other day, "Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree,it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid"
Offhandedly, I think I'll never tease fish again.
I like this quote.
