It is difficult to read through the archives, each
paragraph a line of flight coursing off to the right,
so that thoughts must jump back and forth between
lines, leaning left!

Of course, my readings are always a-semiotic pur
immanence - how could it be otherise? ;-}

When last I read _1000 Plateaus_ it took 1001 nights
to drag me away dazzled by all the exotic historical
excreta etcetera of all 3 sorts and have never been
able to make a globally consistent plane without some
potholes because concepts, as tirds (habits, rules,
symbols), are precisely side effects, parasitized by
affective (passionate) singularities and event ualy
reterritorialized for practical purposes..

Am reading now about autism at
and the "systematizing-empathizing view" vs the "weak
central coherence theory" and how the current
diagnostics, as Theresa says, "none of them are based
on the problems that people with Asperger's/HFA would
want addressed - e.g. hearing problems ... visual
problems ... skin sensitivities ... Unfortunately, it
appears that the research is driven by what
non-autists view as the problem - i.e. that autists
are asocial. This is not necessarily a problem for
autists... I think researchers like Marcel Just are on
a better track looking at such possibilities as
'underconnectivity' in autistic brains where
coordination and integration among brain areas in
lower in autists than in brains of non-autists".

And dropping in on any of these 1000 Plateaus leaves
apluralist appreciation that, as the person cited
above says, "there are apparently different sorts of
people out there ... some of whom are more suited to
quick and effective social interaction and others who
are more suited for analysizing data and systems
accurately and logically. But, these sorts of ideas
will remain obscured if the research remains
