I am growing into an envy for the lifestyle of Stephen Hawking.

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 I see the acceptance of handicaps and the new/nu freedoms/competencies released.

new = freedoms known but blocked or undeveloped
nu = freedoms discovered, unknown before, potentials, ready for actualization.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 As I elder, more and more attention/time/energy is devoted to my disabled, uncomfortable, and distracting body. Less and less attention/time/energy is devoted to creating/composing/doing relevant/rewarding/enjoyable “activities”.

Larry’s condition as of December 2017.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 lifetime lack of mental imagery in all sensory modalities

*total absence of any sensory remembrances of past events, even of a moment ago
*memories only of conceptualized “report”of a supposed objective event
*distant past events “remembered” only as prior conceptual “memories”
*specific locations trigger such “memories” of events occurring at those locations (almost always embarrassing and sexual)
*zero sensory imagination, no visual thinking
*occasional sub vocalization – always emerges from subconscious
writing/typing emerges
*sometimes sub vocalization accompanies emergence of symbols on screen, often in-process editing – grammar correction or generalization

6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 lifetime on autism spectrum

*inadequate relations with fellow humans
*frequent lack of interest in persons, forget their existence, no concrete memories of past encounters
*avoidance of realtime encounters – both phone and F2F, email OK – but forget to reply if not immediately
*HOWEVER, was comfortable lecturing to classes of students.
*HOWEVER, will sometimes speak up after lectures or in meetings, often “politely confrontational”.
*feel lost and “out-of-place” at-parties and in-crowds.
*procrastinate making phone calls
*HOWEVER, can enter long dialog with strangers on topics of interest – sometime I enter “lecture/sharing mode”.
*Unsure about Larry, Confident about nuet.
*quick trigger to SHOUTING when dissed, limited to “family”

need to focus and slow down
drift, stumble on rough ground, many corrected potential falls
a few actual falls, bruises only

20 Leave a comment on paragraph 20 0 Inadequate exercise, muscles weak

weekly guided yoga-stretching, online – one hour/week for 10+ years

practice yoga-stretching only when “waiting” for appointments

22 Leave a comment on paragraph 22 0 Lack of fingers/hands/arms strength and dexterity.

Can focus during conversation, but often digresses to meta levels
WANDERS between episodes of focus
Less frequent insights or motivation to read/write when wandering

27 Leave a comment on paragraph 27 0 some memory/thinking on amplification of lifelong issues
forget most of sems/docs I have written, surprised to discover them
no recall of specifics of anything I have written
remembrances limited to generalities, often awed at details rediscovered

28 Leave a comment on paragraph 28 0 Liberated mind, beyond normal human

Larry/nuet’s Dream Future

Like Stephen Hawking, Larry’s body is maintained by competent-teams.

nuet is galdeed as best possible, seafed by a system-of-teams.

Larry/nuet = Larry is body, nuet is sum-of patterns in body/brain /mind, an inner “wrld”, the immediate correlate of all experience.

galdee = grow/adapt/learn/develop/evolve/emerge

seaf =support/enable/augment/facilitate

nuet becomes a tool of emergent humanity.

The technologies for Hawking/Victor are developed for all humans, as “life extension”.
