A classical text made by someone with AS?

Postby Leeder Krenon » Thu May 15, 2008 3:20 pm

I have read Confucius's "The Analects" several times by now, and I noticed that I often could have come to the same conclusions as Confucius did in the text, when I was studying "The Analects" for personal reasons.

For example, he said some rather self-evident things like, "To study and not think is a waste. To think and not study is dangerous."

I found that after reading through the text very carefully, I found that the things Confucius said often sounded like things I might say if I were asked the same questions.

So, I'm wondering this: What do you think of the text? If you have (or are knowledgeable in) AS, does Confucius sound like he had the condition?
The only reason the government pays for my college education is so I will pay them more money in taxes throughout my lifetime. Now, if they are expecting me to like them for it, tough $#%^.

I do not know much about Confucius at all but, in my opinion, the majority of the great philosophers and inventors throughout history could have had Asperger's Syndrome. Some people with the syndrome end-up devoting their entire life to a single role or goal. If you look at people like Einstein, for example, his entire life was based around science. He also got very angered by what he perceived was morally wrong, as do a lot of us here.
