Moron bites (#21)

The CIA edition.

Best line to come out of the insanity so far:

Mass concentration and coordination of autism via the Internet will [have been a] defining aspect of humanity’s history.

    Thing is its also true russia is a competitor that we have reached a deal with yet. It is pretty clear inteligence community is out of control or should i say in control, which is good they are answering our probe. can trump change this by changing their leadership is a question or will trump be PWND.
    As for autisticnet well like the rest of us they are subject to the speech laws and surveillance state, unlike nrx at least they get that and are attempting to out maneuver that tech coup they see being orchestrated, unfortunately there more autists in the cathedral than out.

    In an insane society, only the dropouts are sane. “Autism” as defined in internet vernacular means people who are socially inept as a consequence of having withdrawn from the insanity at an early age. Sure, most of them are also broken people, but even then, they have preserved some critical thinking faculties.

    This is along the lines of what I was going to say. I’m not sure I would agree that all these guys are autistic. But I do agree that when you give many of the working-class jobs to immigrants and then impose upon men the cost of their dignity and sanity if they want to work in an (effeminized) professional or intellectual environment amidst many affirmative action hires, you will create a large population of disaffected, intelligent, competent, angry young men. And, as always in history, they will be at the center of the most interesting developments.

    If Leftists were smart, they would have… on second thought, I’m smart enough not to do their intellectual work for them.

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought about writing something critical of the left, only to self-censor so as to ensure that their weakness and self-destruction is prolonged as much as possible. I don’t give them any kind of a hint, even if doing so would feel good. They need to suffer.

    But many people who score on the high end of the “autism” continuum have unique talents and a willingness to burrow into matters deeply, as we have seen on Reddit on subjects like MKultra and Pizzagate….

    So, admin: what were you saying about the Cathedral being merely “CIA in clown-face”?

    To think that all these years, I respected G-men. To see them exposed as pathetic clowns like this is surprisingly sad. I feel that I have lost something. Having strong enemies to ennobles a man.

    Even if that guy didn’t do it (and we have no reason to believe he did), just look at the report. I would bet $10,000 that it’s a fake – that the golden shower episode never happened.

    Here some text from the dossier.

    “In 2009, Trump went to the bathroom in his Moscow hotel. Once in the bathroom, he yelled out, “I hate black people!” then proceeded to relieve himself in the toilet. After he was finished he reportedly said, “I take the biggest dumps, nobody takes bigger dumps than me, believe me” and followed with “Y’know what I refer to my poop as – an Obama, because he’s shit, he sucks and was born in Kenya” ”

    Not even halfway through January and the Cathedral officially jumps the shark, just in time for Trump inauguration.

    Autism is more powerful than most people realize. Most people just think about those dudes with low IQ who shit in their pants. In reality, the high iq autist (who is less likely to be specifically identified as such) has probably ALWAYS been responsible for technological progress. So, I guess it isn’t surprising if you get a bunch of these guys together they really can change things in very creative ways.

    I think that one day “autism” is going to be acknowledged as a catch-all for cognitive abnormality, like cancer is now understood to be a catch-all for inappropriate cell proliferation.

    Some hallmarks of cognitive abnormality will be shared amongst the cognitively abnormal no matter which molecular pathways are causing this. The most fragile aptitudes are those which are most evolutionarily recent. In particular human beings have been under intense recent selection for social skills. Skills like theory of mind, reading facial expressions, empathy, social hierarchy, and language. So we can expect the cognitively abnormal to be socially dysfunctional and exhibit weirdness in these domains. I wouldn’t call it a power to be bad at those things. But in rare cases of abnormality there may be some commensurate benefits, like hyperfocus.

    Autism is likely caused be greater than normal concentrations of testosterone during fetal development. This results in a slight IQ advantage because it encourages more brain mass. Most importantly it encourages a larger amount of white matter growth which has been linked to having a deep understanding of a very few narrow domains. It also shifts cognitive ability profiles towards visual-spatial processing and away from verbal reasoning. This pattern is pretty particular and isn’t going to be confused with, say, schizophrenia.

    Whether or not an autist is high or low functioning is, in my opinion, probably only slightly related to the above cause of Autism generally. Much more important is X linked recessive genes which boost intelligence. When you have this combination right, you get these people who are socially inept, but very creative otherwise, especially in technological or theoretical thinking.

    Ok, I’m reading your article now. If it’s just one pathway then there are a lot of misdiagnoses out there. Because there are a lot of ways to achieve socially dysfunctional brains. I see that you are building a theory which, if true, would mean that the way you use the word autism is simply not the way that psych clinics use the word. Babies that have been dropped on their heads or suffer from hypoxia from getting stuck in a curtain pull are routinely diagnosed with autism. spectrum disorder in social services and psych clinics.

    What it means to them is here: https://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/autism-spectrum-disorders-asd/index.shtml.

    “Ongoing social problems that include difficulty communicating and interacting with others
    Repetitive behaviors as well as limited interests or activities
    Symptoms that typically are recognized in the first two years of life
    Symptoms that hurt the individual’s ability to function socially, at school or work, or other areas of life”

    You’re developing a theory which would, if true, explain one particular developmental pathway which could lead to a clinical diagnosis of autism. But I don’t think you get to decide how the psych industry uses the term, and I don’t think it would be useful to try to start an argument about it, which would really just amount to semantic bickering. Maybe you should start talking about Fetal Testoterone Autism (FTA) or something like that, in order to disambiguate.

    It wasn’t 4chan. They’ve named the author of the dossier now:

    Although I guess ‘Christopher Steele’ does sound like a made-up spy name.

    By extension: “The New York Times said something, so I’ll believe it.”
    …Equally absurd. Perhaps more absurd. And no mistake, for it has become nigh impossible to discern truth from fiction, fact from fantasy, in this degraded cultural age.

    I think that the best approach is to note the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect, and always assume that the media is a priori untrustworthy and incompetent. It has become more reasonable to trust a self-proclaimed “expert” or “insider” from 4chan before one trusts the NY Times; this hypothetical 4chan poster is both anonymous not getting paid per post, and thus lacks the two most obvious ulterior motives: Status and money. 4chan, moreover, is not a Cathedral organ, so is not inherently biased against Trump on an institutional level.
