Jack Sinclair there is a difference between the actions of an individual and what are considered acceptable actions in a given society. at the age of 14 I read human sexuality of the human male. I learned about the range of male sexuality – and it is a very broad range indeed. that includes raping cats. it is in the range of male potential just as brutality and dominance and rationality. there’s a difference between the individual, what is acceptable in society, and human nature.

I don’t think brutality domination and greed are common enough to be considered human nature according to either your definition or mine which apparently is nearly the same.

 

Jack Sinclair as I read more and more about autism and adhd as it relates to the amygdala and hippocampus (i worked my way out the olfactory system and back in again) :

I am slowly becoming convinced that I’m possibly wired differently.

I don’t want to be.

The evidence keeps pointing that way.

And if that turns out to be the case, then I rationally deliberate in the places that others run on automatic.

it all ties into social difficulty as it relies greatly on timing – socializing and fulfilling expectations is somewhat of a dance.

if the results of these experiments are about people who do this dance

and not about people like me – if I am indeed different —

then I am in no position to judge what is correct for them from my stance.

but I have to be confirmed to be different before I can accept that.
