We are all autistic

Autism is a developmental disorder that affects the brain's normal development.   It is characterized by impaired social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behavior. 

People think the same thoughts over and over.  They prefer one thing over another.  They continually talk about the same subjects.  Their behavior is repetitive.  You know their opinions and they seldom change.

People are not present in this moment to become aware of their cellular patterning so that something new can show up.  It sets us up for repetition. 

From birth we are programmed.  If a child were allowed to develop its nervous system without interference it would be reflective in their lives. From the moment we are born our nervous system is being impaired.  We are put on a schedule, put in front of a TV, given toys instead of given attention.  We are given answers instead of finding answers for ourselves.

When a child goes to school the child receives limited communication: "Have you done your homework?  Have you cleaned your room?"  The child better has an answer that pleases the parent.  How many children, especially teenagers, can be open with their parents? 

People do things the same way every day, they have to-do lists to make sure its always the same. 

People behave decorously, they have programmed answers and programmed behaviors, a very limited existence.
