... and here is proof, Larry, of exactly the attitude bias that folks from analytic had. The idea is so threatening to you, that you cannot talk about it accurately. I never said anything about "autistic superpowers." What I said is that Wittgenstein thought differently from others, and that this might have cognitive implications for the way that certain brain functions work, and that the relationship of this to certain kinds of autism is something worthy of speculation. I never said anyone had any kind of autism. Wittgenstein might have been autistic-like and only in certain respects. And what I said is that, if true, learning to understand this way of processing (or perceiving) ideas would be a requisite to understanding what Wittgenstein meant.
So threatening to you is that you now have to behave this way. The guy who's the argument checker and the article reader. I just gave you a set of premises, and you can't handle them.
Why is this important? Because you go around saying that Stuart should discuss with lay people so he can have the feeling of being the philosophic sophisticate. Yet, this always the false charm that you and Walter and the others in Analytic wished to have. And so the person in your group who can cite quickly to Johnson is regarded as the best cackler.
Wittgensteinians are discriminated against because they are not allowed to show their aspect to others. We aren't allowed to contribute and get any intelligent responses.

One thing I wonder about is whether Sean has succeeded in making contact with other Wittgensteinians with similar autistic superpowers. That would be so cool, like the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. What would they talk about? Would they ever disagree with each other? Would they ever read any books, or would they have gone way beyond that? When two of them got together, could they levitate?
As a dim librarian type, I can barely imagine what it might be like when real Wittgensteinians get together. It must be, as you'd put it, awesome.
