What has been termed as “autism,” can also be understood as “extra-consensual perception.”
Auticulture, therefore, is internally (privately) generated culture. It exists outside of cultural consensus, being individual to the individual.
It begins with the inner landscape of the individual.
Auticulture is the human dimension of Nature. It is our own true nature.
Auticulture is antithetical to culture . Culture is akin to an externally generated (collective) “self,” or group mind. Auticulture is a “No” to cultural consensus and to socialized forms of perception, and a “Yes” to something deeper and more latent within the human organism.
It is geared towards the sharing of these primary (sensory) perceptions, outside the consensus of socialized or “neurotypical” reality.
It is not so much an alternate culture or separate reality as it is a bridge, or transitional phase, which we trust will lead us to true (nonsubjective) reality, from idios kosmos to koinos kosmos.
Auticulture entails the rejection of, or extraction from, an unconscious consensus in favor of the slow and arduous assembling of a conscious consensus.
