(Abu Hamza in the mall)
Do you know these stereotypes about autistic kids who spend time in “their own world”? These children who became fixated on some weird stuff like leaves, flying dust particles, a candle flame, a stream of water, a corner of a table?
Actually these children are very often here and now more than these neurotypical adults could even imagine.
Because these children could fully concentrate on their own body and the world around them, and their neurotypical parents or siblings need to have years and years of meditation and grounding practice experience to be able to do something like that.
Moreover, even if we are speaking about ordinary Autistic child or even daydreaming Autistic kid who is part of the System and certainly have problems with grounding and mindfulness, this child is “here and now” on the same level as their parents. Because most neurotypical people live in a world of culture stereotypes and social judgment that is no more real than the inner world or daydreaming world.
