Note: That Asperger's represents some kind of mutation that's actually evolutionarily healthy. The survival value of a failure of empathy, so humans can finally make rational decisions unclouded by emotion.
(I haven't gotten around to reading The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time because Bob Smith's novel came out. But it's next on the list.)
This week starting on the chapter on interdisciplinary courses on dreaming, which means collecting every note on the topic I've ever written.
In Humanities, The Bacchae, Leviticus, then on to The Tempest. In Dream Screen, from Freud to Jung by way of Mark Blechner and Ernest Hartmann, Forbidden Planet and Living in Oblivion.

I know this is off-topic, but I just saw the re-release of Blade Runner, after reading Freud's "The Uncanny." Many themes echo those in Hoffman's "Sand Man" tale, and the new version fluffs the Oedipal content ("I want more life, fucker" is replaced with "I want more life, father," etc.)... also the eye-gouging is much more explicit.

anyhow. sorry to digress, carry on.
