Anyone else never officially diagnosed with autism? Your RMET score is supposedly a strong predictor of autism. I thought most questions felt impossible but still didn't do as bad as I thought.

Also post your scores if you like.

Also I was actually diagnosed with autism as an adult, for what it's worth. I'm just very good at doing tests. It's more that there was always one word which seemed to be not like the others and less that I could determine the emotion in the eyes.

Does anyone else suffer from this issue? It seems to me that I have trouble constructing sentences when I am talking to people in real life, and even I get my words mixed up when I talk to myself on camera (I make video journals for myself). The issue gets worse when I argue with someone and my words get slurred. I am jealous of people who can quickly form sentences while I need sometime to make up those sentences. I see these same people who can make fluid conversation and I sometimes wonder if there is something wrong with me. It's like they know instantly what to say and how to say it.

A bit of history: When I was a year old I suffered from a seizure that delayed my ability to articulate speech until the age of 7. My mother told me that when I was 5 I could only speak a couple of words. I was in speech classes in school up all the way to 6th grade.

How does one improve speech?

Yeah I usually have to collect myself for anything requiring thought. I can throw out dumb banter to placate people with ease, but if my response needs substance I need moment(s) to collect myself and think. If I ever find myself stumbling I briefly take a calming breath. I haven't gotten flak for doing so in the middle of a conversation so far.

The way I see it taking a moment to think and prepare is always worth it if what you're going to say is of substance. In terms of just rattling off retorts, keeping it short helps most. The more you add to your message, the more complicated and more translated/localized it will have to be, and that takes time. If I try to construct a sentence while remembering things it's no different than if I had started editing in the middle of a piece of writing, the words don't sound natural and grammar errors are abound. That's why it's easier if you just rattle it off and keep going, because the more you go back and repeatedly edit yourself the less naturally you will speak, whether that is in written or spoken word.

If you want to get into the whole rattling off things mentality the best thing I can recommend is playing something dumb like Team Fortress 2 and responding to all shit-talk as autonomously as possible. Almost every server has people shitting on each other for spewing binds so they're prime targets for trading petty insults. From there it's a matter of translating that shit-talk into a more lighthearted banter with a personal touch.

If it's confidence you have problems with then you might have to re-wire your personality, which is highly dependent on context like your philosophy and perspective on who you are. Easier said than done and coming to the conclusion that befits you is a very erratic process.

fuck i have the same problem. i used to excel in essays for writing and presentations for high school/college because i was able to think and formulate my thoughts over time whereas in real time i struggled accompanied by anxiety making it harder to think straight plus add the fact of wanting everything i said coming out sounding articulate added for craziness in my brain. the way i visually represent xanax when i take it is that the little guy in my head with all the file cabinets knows exactly where each piece of information is located, pulls it out and i smoothly perform my sentences and multiple thoughts clearly without any pause or anxiety. whereas when sober its like all file files are random scattered on the ground and all over the place and the little me is frantically scrambling to find each piece of knowledge in my head. its essentially performance anxiety in a broad sense.

back to the original sentence where i say i used to excel in essays and presentations for school. i isolated for like 6-8 years where i stopped going to school aroudn the age of 20 and recently returned. the combined lack of practice of interacting with people or writing papers and being a NEET resulted in losing my ability to communicate even further.

i believe this traces back to when i was 8-12 years old and had a series of 7 hip surgeries which resulted in missed school, and ostracization when i returned to school simply by being different with crutches and unable to participate in physical activity. keep in mind this occurred during a crucial point of mental development in a child.

here i am today unable to create small talk. no friends. artificial relationships that never last are as far as i get.

As satellites in space smash into each other, debris is created. That debris collides creating tinier debris. The more shit we launch up into space, the more debris we create. The more shit we abandon up there, the years, no, decades of work, left up there like trash thrown to the wayside, the more debris we put up there. One day all of this debris will culminate into a layer of sand sized debris in our orbit, covering our planet, preventing any further launches. No GPS, no satellite based internet or TV, nothing. Darkness. Anything we put up there will be shredded and apart of the blob we have created. Our ingenuity is our undoing. Our haste will kill us all. The space race doomed us.

We should have been safer.

If LHC succeeds in making mini black holes it would be interesting if they can. But sadly they failed to make mini black holes even with the world's greatest particle accelerator due to not enough energy. Also even if we make a super tiny black hole with some massive particle collider, it would just evaporate in an extremely short time span due to hawking radiation causing the mini black hole to lose energy.

Hello wizchan, I have a visit with the state doctor in a few hours and I'm rather nervous about messing this up. I followed Uncle Remus guide last year, got myself admitted and I'm now diagnosed with schizophrenia and severe anxiety. It took awhile but now the fated appointment is here, this will decide if I'm free from work. How can I perfectly mimic a schizophrenic person at this interview?

- don't shake hands
- stare at the wall
- act very dumb, sluggish replies

Is there any other thing I should do? Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Can we have a thread where we discuss the death of our parents or other significant relatives? Please make a post in this thread about your experience dealing with the death of a parent or other relative. What advice do you have for other wizards? How did you handle things like funeral arrangements, sorting things out with other family, finances, inheritance, housing, nursing homes, hospice care, insurance, or emotional issues. How did your other family members handle any of these things?

I'm not dealing with this yet but my parents are old and unhealthy. I know I need to plan ahead. I'm autistic and I can't stand when unexpected things happen, so I need to game out various scenarios in my mind before they happen. It is likely that my father will perish first and that my mother will eventually need some sort of nursing home.

I'm very interested in hearing the experiences of other wizards relating to this topic. I'd imagine that there are others here who are interested as well.

My mother died in may. I wasn't shocked or devastated, I almost didn't care.
When I was a kid I though if my mom died I would be absolutely devastated. But now I barely feel any sadness.
I heard you start suffering the loss only after a while. You mind cannot grasp the fact of loss and life has to remind you again and again that your family member is missing. When good things happen you can't share them with mom or when shit happens there's no mom to support you. My birthday without mom, no mom's birthday anymore. Only me and dad at a New Year's table.

My mother died when I was 14. I didn't deal with the "grown up" stuff you mentioned, so can't help you out on that.
I remember at that time I didn't feel sad. My father and younger brother were devastated, but I didn't feels anything strongly.
Sometime I question myself if my mind is really normal. The only thing that help me convince myself that I'm not a heartless piece of shit, is that I didn't actually feels relief when she passed away.

A lot of Wizards hold to an EvoPsych, Sociobiological, Darwinian worldview. But then where does that leave us as Wizard virgins? The whole goal and point of this viewpoint is sexual reproduction.

Sexual pleasure is the highest reward circuitry of the mammal, theres no point denying it. But these brains weren't meant to cope with the challenge of streaming HD VR porn. And thats were NoFap comes in. Where you see all these normie and potential normie men. Men with wives and gfs. Who give all that up because porn is so much better than the reality. And they are so torn up about it. Because they should like 3d reality meatspace more, but their brains don't.

So in that sense we as Wizards can admit that sexual pleasure is the cookie jar reward of evolution, but we stole it without doing our homework first.

What does this have to do with Super AI? Because in the very very distant future, long past the Terminator Singularity stage, when Super AI has processed every atom in the universe. It will all serve one utilitarian function. To maximize the pleasure of a gazillion simulated minds. Theres no need for a story or history to get mind to orgasm. Just skip all that to the moment of pleasure and make it eternal, a gazillion times over. And that is what the universe will be. The final fulfillment of the utilitarian calculus. The maximization of pleasure without pain.

So to fap to HD porn is to benefit from the primitive reward circuitry of evolution, but it is also to disconnect the pleasure from story and effort and suffering and to see to the future of the universe of Super AI and the Orgasmium (also known as hedonium)

I eat fruits and meat and rice. I don't have that much muscles. I never measured my weight for about a year or so. I spend my day reading stuff on computer or in real life.

Not being obsessed with sex is more related to your mentality than your physical shape according to my personal experience. I never desired a gf since I was in kindergarten as I told my mom that I will never marry. You might not believe me but it was true that I never wished to marry even a single point my life even since my beginning. The only time when I started to feel a slight attraction was when I browsed on 4chan r9k many years ago but I had finally recovered from that devastating social conditioning. What's in your mind is more important than some diet or whatever if you wish to truly reject the social conditioning towards sexuality.

Many of you despair at the state of the world and modern consumerism society, but I am here to tell you not to fear because the world that you hate so much is about to end.

The truth is that the data coming back very recently, within the past few years or so has confirmed what climate scientists feared when we first found that methane levels were rapidly rising with no discernible cause: the arctic sea ice is melting and releasing trapped methane into the atmosphere.

Now if you don't know what that means, basically methane is like this evil carbon dioxide you hear so much about except a hundred times worse in terms of the amount of global warming it will cause. As the ice melts, two things start to happen that will result in a runaway rapid warming effect that will completely destroy the current peace and cause billions of deaths including the extinction of other species besides humans. The first is that the physical presence of the ice over a large area in the arctic acts like a kind of reflective mirror that helps reflect some of the energy coming in from the sun. With that melted, that light no longer gets reflected and instead absorbs onto the surface somewhere and radiates heat into the atmosphere. The second thing is that pockets of methane that are trapped in the ice shelf will release into the atmosphere. Both ice on land and in the sea contains large amounts of methane and any instability in that ice is game over and the ice has been destabilized. The last time we had a mass extinction, an event where over 95% of all species on earth went extinct, the cause was because of rapid increases in methane from the arctic ice melting. We're already seeing mass extinction happen with estimates of the current rate of extinction at about 1000 times higher than usual.

Most of our climate change models predicted a slow and steady linear increase in temperatures, but that's not what the data show is happening at all. The effects appeared slow and linear for a while, but now we're seeing a sudden acceleration that is corresponding to an exponential increase, not a linear increase in atmospheric methane levels that has been happening for over 10 years now. We fucked up. It's too late now to ever prevent large scale social collapse. There will be famine and drought and war, billions displaced and starving. No doubt there will be a revolution and the current order will fall.

Here is a good paper about this by a scientist who haPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

So a lot of us say "i want to see the collapse" but how exactly would you see anything - that requires some stupid reporters to do the thing rather than saving their own lives, or even internet providers keeping stuff together.

Internet browsing has been an enormously important part of my life. From my young teenage years through to my late 20s. I have spent a tremendous amount of time browsing all kinds of forums and archives. For me it was a great way to learn about the world, and these creatures called humans that inhabit it, from the safety of my room. Especially as someone with autism, reading countless anecdotes of human behavior has been valuable.

As I approach 30 though, in recent years I am finding myself growing disinterested in forums and discussion boards. Wizchan and some other obscure topic-specific forums are the only places I visit these days, and those visits are becoming more infrequent. Not to sound too romantic about it, but I feel like I'm in the "twilight years" of my internet browsing career. Although this place is special to me, if this trend persists then I may eventually stop visiting here as well. With this in the back of my mind I am savouring my time here. I'm savouring it because I fear that as I continue to age I will no longer browse here due to the lack of novelty and/or not being able to relate to the (on average) younger userbase.

Can anyone else relate to this feeling?

One of the things I treasure most about this place is that the attitudes here align with my own value system. It is a truly wonderful feeling to have your world view validated. There is no way I could ever find such validation in meatspace. To be told (indirectly/abstractly) that there is nothing wrong with me and that I'm fine the way I am. That is precious to me.

I don't know where I'm going with this but I just wonder how ephemeral this subculture is. Will it somehow disappear or will I eventually leave on my own accord before that happens?

What is life like once one outgrows the internet?

To be clear when I mention internet use here I'm referring to lurking in forums and discussion boards and the like. Not using the internet as a utility. Certainly I have many technical interests and the internet is a tool for that, but what I'm referring to in this post is distinct from utilitarian internet use.

Topics similar to this have been discussed here in the past so I apologise if this is a repetitious post.

Holy fucking shit every single site worth a damn is dying.

It's like they want to kill anon platforms completely as soon as possible and now I can't even imagine being on the Internet in a few years. It's gotten to the point where reading a random book is better, even if it's a shit book. Even worse is I have to travel back in time by 10+ years to find media to watch that isn't full of propaganda/poz.
