Yesterday a friend and I were talking about so-called Neuro Typical people. You know, normans? The ones who don’t have the benefit of lightning fast random thought patterns and the ability to easily notice other things when they could be paying attention to one thing only.
We were discussing how they just plod along, maintaining interest in one simple boring thing at a time.
She asked me how they did that. I said I didn’t know. She asked me if we could find out. I said I supposed that a study could be set up to try and determine the cause of this aberrant behavior, but I didn’t think there was any real benefit to doing that.
I pointed out that the N.T.s were actually just the way all people used to be. I noted that in a few more generations, the new Advanced Development of Human Design (ADHD) would be ubiquitous and omnipresent and any studies of the old humans would be of no use except as museum displays.
Then I realized we should probably study them for just that reason. In fact, I realized that it might be too late to be able to perform adequate studies as they may already not be truly Neuro Typical even now.
You see, I’ve noticed some people saying that they are normal in every way, and believed them. Then I discover that they are highly creative in one form or another. Or they will reveal themselves to be capable of solving problems by looking beyond the limits of the set problem. Or they show a tendency to look beyond the constricts of expected behavior and will prove to be capable of entertaining others in a most artistic way. Sometimes they will give every indication that they are normans, and suddenly, in an emergent situation, they will become almost superhuman in their response to trouble.
I can’t help but think of these traits as belonging to our domain, yet here are people who identify with Neuro Typicality who are already showing signs of higher development.
So I propose that we start doing studies of what is left of the norman population while the opportunity still exists. If we put this off much longer, we will have missed our chance to understand an ancient civilization that is clearly faltering. It may already be too late.
And let’s be fair. We clearly owe them a debt of gratitude. They are our genetic ancestors. Lets not miss the opportunity to study them while they are alive. We don’t want to have to do it later on when we’ll be digging up their ruins and trying to puzzle out what they were up to, do we?
