    Sometimes I feel like an old steam locomotive that has ran off the tracks. Antiquated in my thinking and too stubborn to advance. Then there are those times when I realize it's not me at all, it's the people who fail to see the logic in what I put forth.
    I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    Not really. Many things which make sense to an Autistic make sense to no one else.

    Is there a Turing test for Rain Men? Do Androids Dream of Affectless Sheep?

    Each Autistic has his/her own World -- I may not be able to understand your concepts.

    Each and every Autistic has his/her own World.

    Perhaps non-autistic people have their own worlds, but these worlds are much more open.

    Do you have any talents? My autistic nephew is a state champion in many athletic pursuits but cannot carry on a personal conversation at length nor qualify for a drivers license.
