This is a chaotic post that describes a bunch of thought currents that met in a day or two. I landed in Berlin again, and when wandering aimlessly, I once again bumped into the Wall Memorial path near Mauerpark. I had been there before, but never explicitly to look at the historical photos and read … Continue reading Umbrele nopţii (Diaconescu), Living While Black (Kinouani), and the Berlin Wall Memorial
Not many news on this blog also because since February, I have been chewing on philosophical questions that are not particularly within the topic area of this blog. I quite dislike evil. I haven't had an awful lot of exposure to evil in my childhood, nor really in my youth. Sometimes I didn't recognise it, … Continue reading The multi-headed hydra and the nature of Evil
This is more a generalised update post. I have been toying with various article topic ideas, but in the end the point is that my best friend has a crisis and can't listen (incl. to my newest theories), and I don't feel like paying a stranger to listen, so I'll once again simply write up … Continue reading Exodus from paradise and forced return to following politics (comments on Ukraine war from Poland)
So I'm too tired and jaded to describe it, but it seems to have happened again – within the same couple of days probably twice. Event for which the simplest explanation is that for some reason I had a flash (in one case of less than a second, in the other longer – perhaps seconds or minutes) … Continue reading Involuntary telepathy again, and book recommendation on (extra)sensory perception in autism

So, I had a dream … Continue reading Autism and birth trauma
Well Ok, ADDCA seems pretty white, too. (It's just that Martha Beck said her coaching program may look like an expensive "white womens' thing".)I'm talking about the ADD Coach Academy, the first one ever founded to explicit focus on ADD, and that I got lured into because of having gotten a friendly chat with their … Continue reading ADD coaching at ADDCA vs. life coaching with rich white women
On the intersections between Complex PTSD and autism. Are there autistics who don't "catch" C-PTSD? Are there autism-specific forms and healing paths? And my idea of autism-specific causes (hint: double-empathy problem). Welcomes feedback.
This is a mixed essay starting out with my personal struggles with the "autistic" label to complaints about rigid identity politics towards bookish theories about a missing distinction between the sensitivity vs. coping strategies dimensions of the "autism" concept.
It's been a while since I've been writing here, largely because I've been cutting down screen time to allow my eyes to get better. And travels. Being stuck alone at home with exceptionally lousy weather outside (storm warnings) is perhaps the moment to catch up. Via a friend's mention and then a good review on … Continue reading Relationships without the saviour complex
