atypical, neurotypical

what does atypical and neurotypical mean?


a-, prefix for NOT, and typical, or the NORMAL type,

and while we could (but NOT until college) discuss how NORMAL is a social construct,

or we could (via OVERSIMPLIFICATION) claim there is no such thing as NORMAL,

it won’t stop

the damage caused by segregating the human species

into superior and inferior groups;

it won’t stop until

we can accept the undeniable duality of our collectively conscious different/sameness


neuro-, prefix for BRAIN STUFF, and typical, or the NORMAL type,

more biologically plausible by considering how the brain processes information,

and constructing NORMALCY around whichever processing method presents most of time, although

we still know so little about how the brain goes about the human experience, and it will

not stop until we reconstruct NORMALCY:

thus, we propel towards another societal reboot

to include all of us
