LITERALLY more internal WIRES!? So still on Retrosplenial Cortex, which seems key to ‘something’. A search for Retrosplenial Cortex ADHD got me: “Insula-Retrosplenial Cortex Overconnectivity Increases Internalizing via Reduced Insight in Autism” “Reduced Insight” – which is a silly phrase – means an inability to see one’s self as having a problem when others around you think you do. It’s a social issue (being out of step with common opinion). That said, defined positively? yeah, I can see what they mean. AND, prematurity results in neuronal overgrowth – overconnectivity – generally, because the neural development is sped up exponentially being out of the womb and having to deal with world-stuff instead of being in the womb developing at the normal slower pace swimming in fluid. [internalizing means keeping things to yourself. It can be a rich internal landscape or anxiety/depression/etc or some combination of things that’s generally invisible to outsiders] https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0006322318300635

My brain chatter never ends and I’ve always had (and am comfortable with) auditory hallucination. Also, my genetics stuff puts me in that ‘zone’. But also, I exhibit many autistic characteristics and people with aspergers often claim me. The imprinted brain theory posits a father/mother split between autism and schizophrenia, which reminds me of the “autism = extreme male, schizophrenia=extreme female” notions. But probably because I’ve always sort of seen myself as an “i-don’t-care much” when it comes to my gender — always what’d probably be considered a ‘mixture’, the notion of a teeter-totter autism vs schizophrenia doesn’t compute with my head.

Sounds like a similar era. I was hooked on “In the Universe” type shows which was my justification for TV as well as finishing up some LONG commitments to other shows I let myself get hooked on (I think the Stargate saga and another). But I grew disillusioned starting around 2011 when Hawking did his special trying to prove why God need-not-exist. It was really a strange phenomenon and I saw more and more a “let’s get rid of religion” campaign on the science channel. It was political activism and it was messing up my interest in physics and stuff. Noise instead of signal. And by 2013 I’d gotten into the habit of recording more shows on science than I could possibly watch and was falling asleep to them just to try to catch up. SO I had to stop, at least for a short time, and focus on a project, which I’m still on.
