Robert Edwards: This below is a conversation between a mother and her autistic 6 year old son. It was taken from “Wrong Planet”, the autism/Asperger Syndrome networking website, as part of a discussion on autistic people’s views on re-incarnation.

QUOTE:

My 6 year old son said something to me the other day about reincarnation that totally blew me away. Really left me scratching my head. He’s verbal, but not in the way of spontaneous conversation, so that’s why I found what he said to be even more odd. It went something like this:

Him: “when you die, you come back to be born again?”

Me: “I don’t really know. Maybe…”

Him: “Why Sid (our cat) decide to be a cat instead of a man when he came back?”

Me: “I’m not sure he had a choice. Do you think we have choices?”

Him: “Yes” Then he walked off.

I have no idea where that came from. We aren’t religious, and we don’t ever talk about the afterlife in front of him. Though, I used to be super obsessed with anything paranormal, psychic, and New Agey I don’t remember ever speaking about it in front of him.

END-QUOTE

I thought that one was definitely worth sharing :)

Your servant Rob
