“We have two cognitive minds each with it’s own logical and perceptual processing, synchronous and modulated by intensity. (weighting)” – el Loco GringoAutistic ; a counterfeit concept. Something defined by what it is not. Defined in my terms it means “something unknown is wrong with the right mind or something unknown is wrong with the left mind, or something unknown is wrong with an unknown mind” The scientific method at it’s best. Crisp thinking. Psychologists are idiots. I pulled this from wikipedia. I agree with this part “Savant syndrome is poorly understood”. The rest is bullshit.
Savant; Ah, now here’s something I can wrap my head around. I think it’s safe to say it’s what is mistakenly called the subconscious. I liken it to a puppy, not too bright, eager to please and with enormous collating abilities. (more than it should have, actually) Capable of bottom up thinking.
Idiot Savant; Aha! My puppy is wagging it’s tail, my pop peeper went ka-ching, “you’ve got mail” A correlation has been made. Do the word “feral children” ring a bell? Point your peepers at this> Stupid is forever Feral children did not get imprinted during the critical period, no neuron trellis.
While researching savant I ran across this guyDr . Lee E. Warren, B.A., D.D.
Exerpt: What is an idiot savant? Current research theories show that intelligence is non-local and not bound to the brain. Sometimes nature offers insight into a particular subject by presenting a baffling enigma and contradictory example. Intelligence’s contradictory enigma is the idiot-savant.
The word idiot usually refers to a simpleton, in contrast to the word “savant” in French that means “learned one.” Idiot savants are a subgroup of a class of people called idiots with an IQ of about 25.
So a idiot savant has no algorithm in place, for whatever reason, injury, genetic defect. His left mind isn’t working. A sociopath’s right mind isn’t working. Savant, used by itself describes a person who can use his whole brain, Maslow calls them transcendents, I call them nexialists, psychologists call them psychotic. This dual core processor we have between our ears was evolved/a divine gift/created/unfolded in the now whatever to enable us to make sense of what’s outside the skull. call it god if you want or the universe, cosmic standing wave, great mysterous whatever, doesn’t matter. That’s entirely dependent on wetware (worldview)
Or I could be full of shit, I am crazy, don’t you know?
