Prosthetic empathy for anyone!

This story reminded me to write about the future.

It's a four-stage process: Data gathering, data interpretation, communication advice and response modification.

In stage one the optical, audio and chemosensors gather information about the user and other persons present.
In stage two the information is translated into likely emotional states or intents.
In stage three these states can be communicated to the user via visual (a change of tint in the corner of the eye if glasses are worn, for example), audio (tones can give info or warnings) or physical (it can prod those who can neither see nor hear).
In stage four, the response of the user is modified, if necessary, by directly stimulating vocal and smile muscles or using medication or perhaps some as-yet undiscovered NLP or hypnotic technique.
The device can also be employed to inform the user of their own apparent emotional state as this is not always the same as the emotion that is being felt internally at the time (for example with autistic populations).

One can only speculate as to how these technologies might impact on privacy and safety? Chemosensors, night vision and ultra acute microphones are a stalkers' delight!
Which brings us back to dogs. If you want to hunt people, that's what dogs are for ;)

How to measure emotions

Why is this blog about...

A loosely abominable word ball which has very little serious to say about autism when it is run by an autistic person?

Why not meditate on the phrase 'Clinical Significance' for a while...

People who are not sick do not speak of a sickness, we find it brings us down. We speak of diversity.

We walk a thin line between awareness of our own condition (and your social needs) and the pure meditation of autism.

The only option is to drug gently. The mental effort of 'not acting strange' is toxic. A drug which reduces this strange behaviour leaves the meditation of autism intact.

Not fussy, we swing 21 ways, 22 if you count 'none' as a kind of sex ;)

Many have asked why we always reduce the directions of sex into eating directions? Sure the whole male / female / parent / child shebang has 12 (or 18) dimensions compared the the 2 (or 3) dimensions of eating, but is that it? Really?

Oh dear? Centre of the universe again are we? Tut.

It's when you come to do the breeding directions for guys like these that you really need to look to the reductionist approach.

The eating directions of migration? Food moves. Whenever you move you are eating yourself ;)

MDMA as a novel therapeutic tool for high functioning autism.

UPDATE: MAPS are offering $10,000 for this kind of thing!

This has come up on Twitter which is painful to use in discussions so we'll invite them here instead.

Cannabis For Autism
  MDMA is also 'essential' for autistic people to learn about various truths of empathic NT sociability :)

      ‎(ZEUS) is a palindromic vocalisation. (soos) (c.f. yuj, juj or judge)
      Meaning 'eternal eating choice both ends'
      the highest gods have the best eating names.
      dog and god are lower then zeus
      BUT, he is still a man so must have a ma..
      ma zeusa (to make her edible - man must top her always in labels)
      medusa. which, in eating language, eats jesus in reverse, or makes jesus, i'e' babie zeuses or jesus or whatever the dialect was back then.

    • Yamuna Jeanette Gailloux I get it:-) so it is with Horus. It's amazing.

    • Julian Pursell Goddess means ALL.
      only TIME is inedible to her
      srinagurkragnirs is a viable name of time if you want to try to eat it.

      4ugu57 16, 2010 @ 11:44 4m ·  ·  1 n00b

    • Yamuna Jeanette Gailloux Yes. That's why i say goddess bless to people. It includes all. And what's the point in blessing people if it doesn't include everyone ? Is there ever going to be no time ?
      4ugu57 16, 2010 @ 11:46 4m ·  ·  1 n00b

    • Julian Pursell all communication is convergent, and it always converges beyond male to female or 'genderless', which is time.
      any male god names can always be made edible IN REVERSE to a mother, so she is always higher, because GOD DID NOT EAT HIS OWN MUM. ok? all religions agree on that? right? good.

      4ugu57 16, 2010 @ 11:47 4m ·  ·  1 n00b

    • Yamuna Jeanette Gailloux Cool. I get it. So does this mean that the Goddess was first ?
      4ugu57 16, 2010 @ 11:48 4m ·  ·  1 n00b

    • Yamuna Jeanette Gailloux Ok:-)

      this 'thing' made babies by splitting itself in two.
      I would call that female, many would call it an 'it', but I think they are probably mum eaters so I steer clear of those...
