a fuckingg justin bieber picture has more notes than this. you’re all heartless. fucking reblog it, unless you’re ashamed to have a picture or post related to a child with a disability on your blog, in that case, you can now go jump off a bridge.
My little brother is autistic. I’d be more than happy to help out..
For example, that flower thing. Everyone (or almost everyone, whatever, lol) can agree that a flower is pretty. It's colour and texture and shape and smell create a whole thing that people find aesthetically pleasant. When you break the flower down to the cells, it loses a certain kind of beauty. It loses the whole-experience kind of beauty that is aesthetically pleasing to look at and instead becomes a sort of wonder-beauty, where it's the cell isn't really what's aesthetically pretty but the fact that the cell is what creates the flower.
Does that make any sense?
I suppose it makes sense, if you think that we’re disregarding the aesthetic appeal of something when we break it down to its components.
When you start to work out how a flower works at the very basic level, you discover more about it and can simplify and consolidate what you know about it.
Simplicity itself is beauty in its own right, so when you have a pretty thing such as a flower that can also be explained simply, the beauty of said flower increases.
The marvel of said flower increases more as it can be complex in its simplicity. A multiplicity of organelles all doing the same actions over and over thousands and thousands of times a day, and yet it can be explained so simply.
