Hi Chris, my son has Asperger's syndrome. He was arrested recently for losing his (short) temper with a very aggravating health worker. When asked if he needed an appropriate adult as he 'suffered from' autism. he said, and I am very proud, that he doesn't suffer from the condition-it is who he is-take it or leave it. Short lesson-never play my boy at chess (or at least don't put money on it). Long lesson Chris-cut the victomology-it isn't appealing-I appreciate you are in pain it but if you want to hold up your writing in short bits as (as it seems) an example of Nietzchean overcoming then lose the diagnostic prop!
Sloughing one's skin.-The snake that cannot slough its skin perishes. Likewise spirits which are prevented from changing their opinions; they cease to be spirits (Nietzsche: Daybreak:V:573)

Recently I have been trying to write my blog in clause chains rather
then the traditional sentence paragraph structure
and I received a rather interesting comment along the lines that this is
as if it were thought in production, with hesitations, gaps, etc etc.
I was also trying to get to the flesh and blood body, contra the ideal
bodies of Nietzsche and Deleuze.
Yesterday, I stumbled onto another aspect of this naked body. I am an
Aspergers in severe neurological pain. Rather then the popular
misconception of Aspergers as being affectless, that is, the ideal body
with limited affect, Aspergers is a neurological condition which in real
neural terms is an overloading of distressing affect as if pain is a
brick wall that one is attached to and unable to break from or through,
without the use of morphine, which my government denies me, or as luck
would have it, I have enough valium and codeine to get through to words
and thought. It seems to me that here, the body must also break away
from philosophy, which itself becomes a brick wall denying access to the
real neurological flesh and blood body.
In my blog I have been playing analog against digital images and again,
Deleuze is mistaken in his logic for aligning the human body with the
analog against the digital societies of control. Rather, the real flesh,
blood and neural body is the interface, itself, the real flesh and blood
face, which the Asperger misreads not because of a lack of physical
affect (facial expressions, body languages etc) but because of a neural
overload in the feedback system in which the flesh and blood body is.
Deleuze's alignment of the analog with the human is then his mistaken
absolute idealism. Anyways...
(I had re-joined this list to ask a burning question which I have
forgotten; no matter it will return.)
have chronic fatigue syndrome so may be delayed in reply or brain fog weird
just to let you know that's all, Chris Jones.
