This year, William, my young aspie friend, turned 25.
It really isn’t my place to talk much about his life now; he’d prefer not to share personal information and I feel I must respect that wish.
He lodges with relatives in a rather run-down area to the east side of London. He holds down a job where his intrinsic aptitude and preference for routine and regulations serve him well.
He has created a cocoon of familiarity around himself and, within its confines, once again feels able to chat to me freely via texts and emails. Regular readers of this blog may remember our remote viewing experiments, which still continue every weekend and are as wonderful and puzzling as ever. See here if you’d like to read about it.
As you may have gathered, William has some unusual skills and what he terms ‘knowing’. I suppose it’s an enhanced version of the intuition and occasional flashes of insight we all get from time to time. He tells me that people with autistic perception ‘receive and process information differently’.
As I mentioned in my last post, William has told and sent me many of his thoughts through the years. Whether it was a masterclass in moving objects through space using the mind or a detailed account of how ‘atom strings’ form the universe/s, I’ve always been impressed by his ideas and explanations.
I decided that, for his birthday, I would collect together all these conversations, random thoughts and articles, from childhood to the present, into a single file and send them to him, so that he had a record of the development of his ideas.
I asked him whether he shows them to anyone apart from me. He said he didn’t. That seemed a waste. So a further thought came to me. What if I formatted them as an e-book? He could then – if he chose – publish them and allow others to share his ideas and musings.
It took him six days to come to a decision. I’ve learned to work with his way of dealing with the world. I was texted a few times in the week and told ‘I’m still thinking’. Pressing him for a decision or offering further information or suggestions would have slowed things still further and caused him additional stress. He needed that time to work through all the repercussions of having his words OUT THERE. Finally, late in the evening of the sixth day, the message came: ‘Publish it.’
So I have.
The Words of William are now available – for the cost of a cup of coffee – on Amazon Kindle. The text is short – some 5500 words, and priced accordingly.
This shy but delightful young man spent many years struggling to find a voice for his thoughts. I’d love him to discover that there are those who share his passion for all things metaphysical, multidimensional and magnificent in this cosmos of ours, so if your interests tend that way, please do consider taking a look and maybe downloading a copy or sharing the link with others who might enjoy it.
Also available on Amazon worldwide.
