James Coplan, MD - Developmental Pediatrician / Autistic Spectrum Disorders
This post is for those of you who are on the autism spectrum. I will try to explain something in a way that makes sense to you. My intention is to inform. I am going to take a roundabout way to get to my point. Some people like it when I tell stories, other people get impatient with me. I hope you like the story. At least, I hope you are patient with me. I want to explain a concept: The difference between “don’t know,” and “don’t know what you don’t know.” It’s like the difference between (X) and ( X squared).

For example, I don’t know the mass of the earth. But I know that I don’t know. And I also know how to get the information if I ever want to: I can look it up on-line.

The other kind of situation – not knowing what you don’t know – is much different. Here’s where the story comes in. My step-father grew up in England during the 1930s. His family was affluent, and they gave him flying lessons. When World War II broke out, my stepfather volunteered to become a fighter pilot for the Royal Air Force. Since he already knew how to fly a plane, the RAF whisked him through the enlistment process. Things were going smoothly until the very end of the physical exam, when the medical officer pulled out a bunch of flashcards, and asked my step-father “What number do you see in this pattern of colored dots, Mister Friedman?”

“Number? What number?,” my stepfather replied. “I don’t see anything but dots.” Unbeknownst to my stepfather, he was color blind. Until he took the color vision test, he didn’t know what he didn’t know. After he took the test, he knew what he didn’t know. Get the difference? Years later, when my stepfather married my mother, she made sure to keep the clothes in his closet in separate groups, by color. He still couldn’t see the colors, but he knew that if he took a suit, shirt, necktie, and socks all from the same part of his closet, his clothes would match.

Can you see inside my mind?
People wonder what is a true flashback is.

They think it is like a T.V. show were the person goes into a dream state and everything changes. Yes in some cases this is the case however it gets more intense. When the person has a flashback it takes in to account what triggered it. I want you to step out of yourself and pick a time you had in your life that made you very happy. Feel the air, is there wind or is it calm? Really listen to the sounds ...
