While listening to this story I began to wonder about evolution. To survive we must adapt. When our specie begins to explore its next evolutionary development, how would the first experimental attempts appear to those of us who are not a part of the process. Certainly these developmental changes would not be recognized for what they were. Being other than normal they would most likely be regarded as a negative and not a positive, an affliction or defect. It's reasonable to assume that the next evolutionary step would involve the further development of our mind, it's capacity and functionality. What is the possibility that the condition we label as Autism is is fact an expression of this evolutionary process?

If Autism can be viewed as a specialization of the brain's functionality and recognizing that remarkable intellectual accomplishmants can result, is it not possible that we are seeing our specie trying to find it's way into the future.
