I am picking up on ways that spectrum types seem to connected to an earlier permeation of human being that lived much more closely amongst animals and in Nature, and even with animal themselves (since those early people did not feel the same disconnect with other species that modern humans do) rather than to the currently dominant neurotypical strain of human that has largely disconnected from Nature. In our extrasensory abilities, as in an ability to sense many things that we can’t "just" pick up with our conventional five senses (to the exactingly detailed standards we prefer...), our ability to preview how something will feel in advance by tuning into the experiences of others, plus our trends of mixing up and crossing over those senses, as in the way of synesthesia, and of using visual images as memory and information rather than “ideas”, I sense this link. In the way our bodies seem to connect with and respond to circadian and other natural cycles more than most people, I sense that link. In my case, the way I work, quite compulsively and intuitively, with symbology and complex metaphor feels as though it harks back to an earlier format of human that lived deeply immersed in Nature and took all sources of data, logical or otherwise, as clues leading towards a fuller sense of meaning. In our joined-up way of processing, and our deep frustration with systems built to serve social ideas of human behaviour, prescribed largely to serve ideas of lack, profit and control (but which make no sense in the broadest sense or supporting life for all and which fail to take care of the “bigger picture”of our world) I feel like some sort of honorary member of the animal kingdom shaking their head in dismay at the way the world has been turned over for personal gain. Yet, to seem more neuroptypical, in order to blend in and survive, as we saw it, we may have traded off our profound connection with the body and its senses to focus on our heads...
CBD for fibromyalgia?
As expected, some new feedback on the usefulness of CBD for fibromyalgia is starting to appear. Sharing some of this feedback, the new science on this topic and my own anecdote as an opening for your own enquiries, if you think this might be useful for you.
The bread of life
If Fibromyalgia or similar long-term health challenge is part of your experience, its likely that you also experience some degree of food intolerance as the two seem to cross over so very often. In my own case, I have gradually come to notice (and acknowledge) in myself a degree of intolerance to gluten; and then to recognise … Continue reading The bread of life

After all, the skin is a huge permeable membrane that absorbs whatever we apply to it so there's no pretending that … Continue reading Everything’s coming up roses
