About autism seen from inside out
To make known the cause of autism from direct experience of autism;s inner worlds.
To make conscious for the 70 million individuals worldwide on the autistic spectrum, many more family members and researchers affected by the condition – who t confront daily what has been unexplainable.
To develop pragmatic resources that can make all the difference in the world.
Hats off to Dr. Steven Katz who had the guts and chutzpah to follow me into the darkness inside Archetypal Autism – and let go of 50 years of Western erudition and orientation.
With a family history of autism this site shares personal experience of a 25 year 24/7 journey into the inner world of autism.
This Holy Fool (I invite you to Google it if not familiar) infiltrated autism’s inner worlds using dreams, meditation and non-stop persistence. In the process overcome every autistic impairment whether sensory, cognitive, etc, you know them all too well.
The scientific word is Neurogenesis. All sensation and feeling were recovered one at a time, each taking about 5 or so years requiring 50-80 hours a week until complete regeneration of the entire impaired sensory system.
Prior he experienced (enjoyed would not be the right word) improbable success in several New York City finance businesses.
He first founded Practical Growth, Inc. (then called Symbax, Inc.) providing tax consulting services to small and medium sized business. This evolved into a specialty financing business founding Medallion Financial. He also was the lead entrepreneur in partnership with Emigrant Savings Bank creating from a startup Emigrant Funding. Both businesses have enjoyed much success, each now with several billions in assets.
Before he was able to see color he was known New York art collector appearing on the front page of the Wall Street Journal and featured in a Sunday New York Times article on unusual art collectors.
This improbable event was made possible solely by photographic memory and intuition acquiring color vision and depth perception on June 8, 1994 in Oklahoma City.
A decade plus of online experiences have served as a tool for healing but become an award winning online pro with experience in Local SEO, SEO, PPC and Google Certified including recognizing and documenting very early local SEO protocols winning SEMMY awards in 2008 and 2009.
Clients have enjoyed outstanding transformative success as I combined a highly developed intuition, successful business building and technical know-how.
