AutismThe Theorem: A Major Discovery in Autism!
As a society we value learning. In the United States alone there are over 4000 colleges. That is a big number. Having our children attend an institution of higher learning and education is a goal for millions of Americans. Indeed few would argue that learning is central to our ideals.
What if we told that there was a place that learning was actually a hindrance; a place where your very survival depended on your mindless conformity. A place where you were better off not to know, where it was essential to simply react to changes put in front of you. Indeed while we as a society value learning, the womb is one place where learning was never supposed to take place. And the results are devastating when it does occur.
While it is almost impossible to understand what this means in relation to autism in this brief synopsis, we will take you back to a place where misinterpretation abounds in order to give it a try. To do so we will have to shovel through some science, so pardon our mess as we try to avoid going too deep into the model without digging ourselves into the hole of the core theory; an almost impossible task. But we will give it a try anyways.
As you will learn throughout The Theorem, the typical fetus realizes a very limited consciousness and an inferior memory capacity. What little memory function it is enabled comes in small erratic waves towards the end of the pregnancy; essentially the memory is blocked, as it is just not developed at this early stage. While all the equipment is there, little is happening. Nature wants it this way, as she needs the developing fetus to completely conform to her conditioning model. The importance of this conformity cannot be underestimated or exaggerated. Essential reflex, auditory, and sensory programing is occurring. Not just essential, but life defining. If the fetus fails this conditioning model, then close to 90 percent of these pregnancies will never result in a successful live birth. It is that simple. The fetus simply would not have the ability to make it out of the womb, or even endure anything close to a term of pregnancy.
Now there is another phenomena going on here that as you will see has relevance to autism. The phenomena is that Nature paints in broad strokes. While discussion of this is beyond the scope of this brief summary, what you need to know is that her laws are applied generously throughout her developmental spectrum. One of her laws unwritten and rarely understood has to do with human reproduction. You must realize how much is at stake for her with a live birth. This is the end result of millions of years of evolution and we are her greatest experiment. So if conditions are less than ideal she has a tendency to speed up the process of development a bit. This comes with both the physical and mental spectrum of development. This has been well documented for many years with physical development. Fetal lung development is a good example of this. When conditions throughout the pregnancy are less than ideal, fetal lung development is accelerated. Makes sense right? After all you just learned how important this live birth is to her, so she takes no chances. No matter that many of these areas will atrophy later because they were utilized prematurely, her first goal is to get that fetus out of the womb alive.
What is less understood however, is how Nature does this with neural development. More importantly what this means to fetal neural development in relation to fetal conformity to the two cycles of the fetal behavioral and conditioning model. This a central question The Theorem answers. The results of accelerated neural development in the case of human fetus, as you may have guessed are catastrophic. When conditions are less than optimal for a pregnancy, and for a myriad of factors; including genetic and immunological considerations, the fetus that will later develop autism realizes prematurely an accelerated memory capacity.
Yes, what you are reading is correct, the existence of advanced memory in a time and place where memory is supposed to be blocked. Therefore conformity to the fetal development model; the First Fear and The Euphoric Cycle, is compromised. Now most of the time, the vast majority of time, this results in a miscarriage. But once in a very great while, one of these individuals survive. This is the world of autism; a child who experienced the same intrauterine development scenario that every other child did, but experienced it in a completely different way.
Again, as a society we value our memory and learning. But as you will see in this chapter this is one place that learning was never supposed to take place. This was an environment where the very origin of our reproductional motivation, the very survival of our species, is based on a fetal misinterpretation. This misinterpretation was possible only due to the lack of high functioning fetal memory and an inability to learn. In contrast, the fetus that will develop autism never realizes this misinterpretation; this deception.
Instead this fetus learns. It learns things that have absolute relevance only to the environmental conditions in front of them, and this learning comes at a high cost. One of the many results of this learning is that instead of reacting to changes in the intrauterine environment like the typical, this fetus can actually anticipate these changes and has learned a series of primitive planned movements to deal with them. The vast majority of this primitive learning is focused on futile attempts to anticipate and control the horrifically painful episodes of independent fetal breathing, or fetal apneas. One of the many of these coping strategies is pain reduction. Where the typical fetus accidently experiences its fingers finding its mouth and an increase of dopamine, the autistic fetus goes further. It ‘learns’ through trial and error that if a finger finds a small increase in dopamine, a hand or wrist yields more dopamine and more relief from this nearly incomprehensible pain.
Again, this is in a place where these complex planned movements are not supposed to take place. This unique development results in a series of debilitating symptomology that while may appear strange at first glance; when taken in context of their exposure to the fetal conditioning model, make absolute sense. Hence, a clarity and insight is gained into autism never even imagined, more or less explained.
Another example of one of the many problems with this accelerated memory function and its ability to undertake in primitive learning has to do with sensory coding; especially with the fetal fingers. For the typical fetus, who cannot learn, sensory coding comes at a painful price. To prevent the fetus from seriously injuring the mother, the intrauterine walls that are warm give off an exaggerated painful sensation to the underdeveloped fingertips every time they are touched. The typical fetus reaches out and touches them, realizes the pain, and then quickly retracts them. Over and over again this occurs throughout the night. Why? Because this fetus just forgot as quickly as it retracted its fingers, the painful sensation experienced. The autistic fetus is no fool for such conditioning however. No it learns, and one of the first things it learns is how to avoid pain. It knows that touching those walls is a painful experience, and simply will not repeat the same mistake. There are a couple of obvious problems with this however. The first is that coding is occurring for a reason. During labor, the fetus will need that coding to navigate through the birth canal, as Nature essentially maps out its route by the mothers body temperature. So if the autistic fetus even makes it out of the womb alive, which is doubtful without assistance, it will still realize deficits of sensory perception on its fingertips and other extremities. This could cause it to harm itself accidently as a child, as the sensory coding is deficient.
This of course is just the very beginning, as it would be an injustice to summarize more here. Attempting to interpret the entire model out of this brief summary is not recommended and will likely yield a highly incorrect perception, as key pieces of the model are missing; including but not limited to the explanation of the core developmental cycles of The First Fear and The Euphoric Cycle.
The developmental origin of the major symptoms will all be explained in the book’s section on autism; the stereotypical movements, the biting of the hand, the rocking, the panicked look or reaction to life out of the ordinary, the infatuation with schedules and timetables, interest in watching something spin, the pockets of rote memory, their difficult comprehension of lies and deception, the lack of eye contact, the reduced speech output, the irritation with loud noises, and so much more. Yes, and do not be concerned parents if your child’s symptoms are not on this list, as there will be value for you here. Autism, like Nature that it patterns, is an ever evolving entity; therefore, so is this disorders symptomology.
This is not only the most revealing chapter in the book, but perhaps the most revealing chapter ever written in human history in relation to understanding our own development. In this chapter you will essentially go behind the scenes to a time and place that many feel we were never supposed to even remember, more or less dissect and discuss. It is on these pages that the veil is lifted and we witness the bold brilliance of our own dramatic origins. Then to further enhance perception, typical development is contrasted to the development of an individual that will develop autism. Quite simply, there is nothing like it ever written or experienced.
Indeed the child with autism has overcome astronomical odds all in order to exist; they are the true survivors. While they may be hard to reach for many of us, these remarkable individuals are the only conscious witnesses to the trauma that defined our horrific origins; the trauma that is buried deep within the subconscious of us all. Perhaps this is the reason we are drawn to them and their struggles.
