Aspergers : Left-Handed and Footed

This childlike posture is universal to us and completely unseen in Homo Sapiens

Neanderthals don't sit like robots, they sit like people.

I sit this way because it seems natural. It is so easy to imagine people clustered around a campfire relaxing in these quixotic poses because they are ... dreamy, wry, impractical and unsophisticated in terms of their ability to calculate their body's appearance as a social stratagem. As one person noted, this takes the pressure off the soles of the feet making it a good way to sit despite not being "correct."

It is friendly and so very personable. This posture says I am more concerned with comfort than projecting discipline and regimentation.

I just see melonheads pulling Sapiens out of cloning vats and seating them at benches and all of them side-by-side with that exact same distance between their feet sitting parallel with their shoulders. They are more like automatons than natural, organic creatures. It is the Neanderthal who is warm, uncultured and lacking in a desire to do what most conforms in all things. Why are Neanderthals so slow to mature and always childlike even at 50? Homo Sapiens matures at half the rates of primates and maintains neoteny well into his 20's. The Neanderthals mature at half the rates of the humans for the exact same reason. Coupled with a superior intellect their childlike aspect keeps them much more creative, experimental and good at problem solving long after Homo Sapiens has completely shut down mentally. These qualities are the difference between life and death in an Ice Age in which most of the planet is covered with snow.
"Apparently sitting with your feet like this is really comfortable.  I’ve tried it now, and it made me remember how many comfortable things we give up when we enter the world of adulthood and social referencing.  The ability to be disconnected from social norms can cause problems - we hear lots about that - but it can also preserve behaviors that are timeless in their comfort and charm."
Now for the big finish.

Every single study that has ever been done of workplace productivity has shown that people concerned with privacy, comfort and happy surroundings (the absolute opposite of cubicles, dress codes, authoritarian management and surveillance) are far, far more productive than their contemporaries who don't seem to mind. How productive? Ratios of 25-to-1 and 100-to-1 are common with such people. That's right. Objective metrics (seems certain to miss a lot that might also be pertinent) has revealed such people can do 25 times the amount of work in a day that ordinary people can. A shame the world isn't really like Saps imagines it to be at all. Of course, such people are the first to be terminated/expelled/forced out in political struggles for power every time. The research proves as much every single time they study the phenomenon.

The same tension that pulls the big toe into the Greek foot shape pulls the feet in. I know a baby like this who can touch the soled of her feet together. Thanks for the post; it was eye-opening.

Tex are you a diagnosed Aspie? Also, do you have prosopagnosia and haphephobia?

Texas Arcane said...

@Awdi

Like most Neanderthals, can only remember immediate kin or people who look like Neanderthals. This has been demonstrated in the lab.

Obvious why. Neanderthals had no need to remember non-Neanderthal faces or faces outside immediate circle. Everybody else if they were looking at them, they killed them because they shouldn't be on Neanderthal territory.

Huh. I just thought sitting like that was one of my odd quirks. I've never seen anyone else do it. I also sleep with my arms curled underneath my chest, like a cat. I'm right handed, but I used to wear my watch on my right hand. I stopped wearing a watch entirely because, with my right hand being dominant, it kept bumping into whatever I was reaching for.

I'm curious, does anybody here use a standing desk? I bounce from sitting to standing depending on what I'm doing. Deep thinking and planning is done sitting. Execution is done standing.

Most neanderthals did not have asperger's or any mental illness.

Funny I remember getting yelled at in boot camp for sitting like that.

Autism != Asperger's
The rates of autism have risen dramatically since GMO food 'been introduced in da market, my nigga. Not asperger's.
Asperger's tend to be more common amongst Northern Europeans, but some other forms of autism will tend to be more common amongst blacks. The second link didn't talk of Aspeger's.


To me, it seems too coherent and it is very, extremely likely that much of Texas Arcane's toughts are true and valid.

I find this very unlikely that Asperger's syndrome may be a disorder.
It just seems too "coordinated". It seems to be a response to a demand from the environment, and if you take a closer look at the sexual tendencies in males and females, you will see that they correlate and were "meant" to be each other, almost as if it was a race.

And then, many other things indicate that Asperger's syndrome is a degree of expression of Neanderthal genes.
For exemple, Neanderthals had a much, much lower digit ratio, which is an indicator of prenatal testosterone, and in utero testosterone restrains the development of the left-brain hemisphere and encourage the development of the right-brain hemisphere, and it causes left-handedness.
And then, the brain of both male and female aspies tends to be more masculine, and endocasts have shown that the Neanderthal's brains were much, much more masculine as well. For this reason, sometimes the females can happen to be bisexual, and the males very straight. That doesn't prevent Europeans from having the greatest difference regarding skull thickness between males and females however.

And the skulls of the original Indo-Europeans had many, many Neanderthal features. If there is one thing that I observed in many aspies, it is often a natural disdain for sex (which they can very often occur to blame on their parents or religion..).. and as texas arcane said many times, difficulties being dishonest.
"Aryan" comes from the sanskrit "Arya", which means "Noble", "honorable", "spiritual", and if you take a closer look at the toughts and doctrins of people which we could say have inherited alot of Neanderthal DNA for exemple the ancient greeks or the aryans, you will find that they very often occured to hold the same toughts as aspies nowadays.

What the first link you gave says is.. stupid.

@Takuzda

Spot on. I would add some modifiers for nothing but interest :

1. In Ashkenazi Jews the expression of Asperger's Syndrome is nearly always accompanied by other symptoms involving autism, whereas in Northern Europeans Asperger's Syndrome often appears with little or no genuine autism involved. For example, Northern Europeans with Asperger's Syndrome often demonstrate great agility (according to Hans Asperger) whereas in jews is always associated with clumsiness. What we are seeing here clearly is genes being expressed from the same species in two different ways and most often pathologies in Eastern European jews. Important to note the original species that had these genes had all the markers for autism and schizophrenia turned off completely meaning they did not suffer from either. Compare for example Von Braun with any jewish intellectual. Both had peculiar social awkwardnesses but Von Braun never displayed nervous tics, strange bursts of mania or bipolar mood swings.

2. A heightened requirement set for mating meant Neanderthals would be able to control their fertility. If things weren't "just right" they might live and sleep together without having sex despite having high levels of testosterone. Fertility could destroy a tribe overnight unchecked if it occurred year round on impulse without some capacity for prudence and hesitancy.

3. There are a lot of embarrassing things about Neanderthal sexuality and one of the most important is noted by Takuzda. Men may have been very straight and women may have been casually bisexual. This also contributes to fertility control for a lot of different reasons. It is possible that woman confused parentage as often happens in matriarchies (and patriarchies) as well. One important facet of tribal life would be for a woman to possess an extended kinship that may have included possible suitors - the most critical thing would be to see to it that women and children were always taken care of, even if the man were killed or lost. This would entail another male stepping forward to adopt that woman as his wife as her long term platonic friend previously, with the capacity to change it into a traditional male/female bonding. So we could say that whereas Neanderthal marriages were far more monogamous they would have still had an extended kin and tribal network to assume responsibilities for them. The Neanderthals would have been utterly horrified at a notion of single mothers facing the world without assistance to care for their children like we take for granted nowadays. They probably would have dismissed modern people as little more than animals.

4. Doctors are doing nothing but trying to avoid lawsuits by confusing Asperger's Syndrome and autism. It is a way of obfuscation that hopes to stave off the malpractice litigation. "Who among us really knows what is going on? It's a mystery. Your kid may have that super retard autism or something. Let's not jump to conclusions." Essentially due to vaccines it has been necessary for the medical community to draft Hans Asperger to their side to explain all these Frankenstein damaged children. If Hans Asperger were still alive he'd be the first to sue them for using his name and his research to describe something that has nothing to do with what he concluded was not autism at all.

I read that article and I was confused for a second, doesn't everyone sit like that, all the time?

So I did a quick google search for people sitting, people sitting crossed ankles. I scrolled through a bit but I didn't see anyone sitting like that.

Now I'll have to look around and watch how people tend to sit.

Tex, I have a question, is there a lot of overlap between someone with strong introversion and those with Asperger's?

Texas Arcane said...

@Russell

Introversion is constantly selected against by Homo Sapiens basic living conditions, as is intelligence and perception. It could only be a trait that arose amongst people with small tribal numbers.

Grogard said...

Autistic kids must have some kind of brain damage from pollution. They grow in numbers in industrialized world and barely exist outside it. They are about as low functioning as down's syndrome kids, too, except usually violent and uncontrollable.

Interesting about digit ratio and handedness. Looks like I have neanderthal-range digit ratio. Since grey matter and testosterone go hand in hand no wonder I am so analytical. The family has lots of lefties on both sides.

I do that with my feet too and used to fold my hands all the time. Maybe I am actually aspie? LOL

Mantis Mainomai said...

I don't know that I am terribly Neanderthal.

Yet when I opened that link I just happened to be sitting exactly as pictured... interesting.

I know you've said before that Thal and Saps is like oil and water when it comes to admixture. What are your thoughts on introverted people who display some Thal traits, though not to an extreme?

I'm introverted, but I'm certainly not left-handed and I don't have an extreme digit ratio, though it is low (ring finger longer than index - though for some reason the ratio appears higher on my left hand than right). I do have the Greek foot, yet again it is not to an extreme. I'm not extremely masculine or robust.

To what extent does environment tone down the "oil and water"? Or by oil and water, do you mean that an individual can display both stereotypically Saps and stereotypically Thal traits in different areas?

Mantis Mainomai said...

Another question... some of the ways you speak about Thals they could almost be stereotypically Celtic or even Italian, who despite being quite extraverted societies, have a lot of creativity, a certain "childishness", tolerance for eccentrics and show plenty of individual genius...

Yet in others they're uber-Nordic or "Aryan", with that extreme introversion, monomaniacal devotion to a task or ideal, structured and abstract as compared to the more romantic, intuitive Celtic way.

And then there is the case of Neanderthal genes in Asians and Native Americans... Did different groups get different traits?

Do tell me where I read false things into your ideas. :)

@Mantis

The great Stan Gooch was first and was one of the most insightful. He lived just long enough to see the year 2010 when the entire scientific community had to begrudgingly begin to acknowledge some of his work.

It is not that I agree with all his conclusions but I believe the majority of his thought was lightyears ahead of the orthodoxy. Lightyears. Had Gooch known there were five species of Neanderthals now identified and the genetic distance between them was often greater than that between Homo Sapiens and any of them, I do not doubt this would have spurred the most incredible insights that could be imagined.

http://gaiancorps.com/study/history-geography/ancient-history/item/525-stan-gooch-the-neanderthal

I think that where we see wild instability of personality we should not assume that Neanderthals were unstable but rather this is hybrid un-fitness in action. Not all hybridisation produces good results.

Altamurans. They've been trying to hide them for almost a hundred years. They look way too much like anatomically modern human beings.
