SIngle sided profound deafness can also mean: * Trouble paying attention to what people are saying: “evasive” behaviour. * Misdiagnoses as ADHD * Seeming lack of awareness of other people’s personal space and moods since brain is hyper-focused on deciphering auditory information in lieu of non-verbal social cues. * Appearance of anxiousness even in low noise situations * Jumpiness * Chronic interpersonal communication difficulties due to inability of brain to isolate or beam form sounds and voices of other individuals

Thing is, I +don’t- understand most other people’s points of view. I don’t feel threatened _or_ amused if someone says, “as a member of [race/gender/nationality/etc], understanding me will escape you”, I’m like, ‘Ok, You’re probably right”. If my engagement with them was one of mocking or debate, my behavior would clearly indicate that they are, in fact, correct, and that I don’t.

EDIT 5: I was right the first time; removed the doubt edits. Confusion was that SOCIAL is can also be included in DMN but doesn’t have to be. will add: start at DMN, THEN to motor, then using motor/concrete to imitate a “2nd order DMN” that includes social background assumption (typical social intentions) due to lack of a DMN social background .. oh, i am so close. –restart Motor to default mode network There is a how to why spectrum which goes from concrete to abstract and it recruits different parts of the brain but it’s not so much a dichotomy as there’s levels of abstraction. This is big. I’ve read some people (inattentive adhd, autism, preterm born but there’s many others) who spend a lot of time in the “default mode network” (DFN) (daydreaming, thinking about past and future and possibilities, etc) and I’m definitely one of them. Now armed with that and a) the notion of an “salience network” bridging between default mode network and executive network (a paper from a few days ago and b) this notion of concrete (how) to abstract (why / social), I’m “almost there”. These papers use DIFFERENT notion of abstract than I’ve been and so I have to adjust so I’m not there “yet” but wow it’s almost: I think for example my learning of psychology from a young age was to compensate for being UNABLE to form a quick “Theory of Mind” and _instead” have used reasoning systems to compensate and motor systems for “SPEED” to try to IMITATE A “THEORY OF MIND” (compensation) as best I could.

America has a “need for things to be cheap” problem. It is why we have an undocumented worker issue to begin with. They tried hiring suburban high schoolers to do this in the 1960s. It failed miserably. This is hard work that is decades away from any real automation and if we want to grow food on our own soil, we either have a pay high prices at the supermarket or expect undocumented workers to do the hard stuff and at least give them basic human rights.

She shouldn’t worry. The internet has unleashed creativity among children in a way that the world’s never seen before. Go through Youtube or Tiktok or Instagram and you’ll see hundreds of thousands of kids worldwide making videos to entertain themselves and their friends or even just out to nobody – just to perform and show off what they can do. They share dancing, drawings, musical talent, sport skills – and even if nobody’s watching, these phones give them an outlet to express themselves. So no, She’s wrong. It’s not that the internet is needed or that phones are needed; but they HELP creativity more than hurt because they give the ability to share with others.

She shouldn’t worry.
