The cause of autism, termed by Eugen Bleuler in 1911, has not been elucidated to this day. A scientific and logical approach can be utilized to eliminate potential causes and consider ideas not thought of before. Therefore, it is proposed that literary creativity is in fact the causative agent of autism and that a biological cause of autism will never be found. This notion is substantiated through its very unscientific early history and verified with observations made by both Leo Kanner and Hans Asperger. Without a mechanism of pathology, it is suggested that perception plays a major role in both the dissemination and the cure of autism. The Chi-square test of independence of statistics was used for hypothesis testing to show the low probability that pathology is likely to be found in the word “egocentricity,” a term described to be one of the earliest precursors of autism. Therefore, due to the history of autism, autism is best defined as only a redefinition of the word “egocentricity.”
This project seeks to benefit those diagnosed with autism. Please see the document with the title of "Literary Creativity" as this is the manuscript written by the author with the intent to publish and make available to the public. The document with the title of "Autistic Thinking Eugen Bleuler" is one of the references referred to in the manuscript written by the author. To get to the material in that reference, please see the text file with the title of "Autistic Thinking Instructions." The website provided in the Wiki was also written by the author and is intended to be a companion to the "Literary Creativity" manuscript. It is hoped that anyone who reads this project enjoys it.
