Neurodiversity, or “The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism” -Proposing the “Medi-Social© Model of Disability and Neurodivergence” III-

One of writing’s most complex hurdles is leaving one’s “body” to immerse in the dream within dream of creating a structure for a world somewhat different than the original. In the dystopian nightmare created by Orwell, Emmanuel Goldstein’s “book” becomes the embodiment of Winston’s hope that his participatory complicity in changing the past to suit … Continue reading Neurodiversity, or “The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism” -Proposing the “Medi-Social© Model of Disability and Neurodivergence” III-

A Concerned Neurodivergent’s critique of Judy Singer’s “There’s a lot in a name… Diversity vs Divergence” article – I – …

I have only incidentally heard about Judy Singer, which is probably due to her two-decade long absence, which she succinctly describes as: “Returning to the field 20 years later”. As rather erratically “clarified” in her article, these motives seem to be, using the least belligerent term which comes to my mind, complex, motivated mainly as … Continue reading A Concerned Neurodivergent’s critique of Judy Singer’s “There’s a lot in a name… Diversity vs Divergence” article – I – …

The Stockholm Syndrome Symptomatology of Neurodiversity Militantism

I was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in June 2017. As I wrote in the “About…” tab of my blog, “Over 50 years of a rather odd life, came to a sudden realisation, with all the clicks and cogs falling to their right places.” Little did I know at the time, that the sudden realisation … Continue reading The Stockholm Syndrome Symptomatology of Neurodiversity Militantism

Theoretical Philosophy, a Disclaimer…

Standing alone at the midnight crossroads of thought may be frightening. No one knows who's coming, bargaining belonging for one's liberty of mind. Alone however, doesn't mean lonely, until there's a clarity of purpose, bitter rooted in an effort to achieve through learning, forward looking onto a more palatable reward of understanding. Theoretical philosophy irreverently … Continue reading Theoretical Philosophy, a Disclaimer…

Per aspera ad astra…

Yes, I reverted my Twitter handle back to @Aspergreatness I was diagnosed with ASD/Asperger's Syndrome according to DSM5/ICD-10. What Hans Asperger shouldn't have done in history's darkest hours, I can't change. The legacy of his research into understanding my neurobiology, saved my life. I became an Asper 😡♿✡ Proudly 🐉

Embrace…

There… Where no thoughts remain at the door to nowhere. Where autumn crawls under each fallen dream to carry it beyond forgiveness… I've learned to count backwards from illusion, hoping to reach the point of no return into some stranger's thoughts about my own defeat. When we sit down, my soul and thee, it's me...
