I don't see pain in colours, but my doctor had difficulty understanding my description of a "thin, high pitched pain."

Some testing has shown I'm not neuro-typical, but I've never explored it further.

Sorry, I only saw I had messed up the code after the edit window had closed [brick wall] .

Huia- preview post should be my constant friend, instead of a passing acquaintance.

Dang. I know what a thin, high pitched pain is. We hates them, my precious, we hates them forever.

How do your musical colours fit with different note names? For example, are G sharp and A flat the same colour? Or is it more a colour palette for a certain key?
My colours/notes do some interesting stuff but they aren't completely consistent.
I can tell my choir is going flat because all the colours start to get colder and a bit muddy and then they just go weird. I find it very difficult to read music in the wrong key when singing as I have to transpose in my head.

Hi! Very similar - enharmonics are generally a similar colour but not the same - for example C sharp is a deep red while D flat is purple, while A flat is a sort of brown while G sharp is a deep orange.

If I'm in a group that's going out of tune the colours go muddy and horrible. It's very hard to read in a different key to that written - I have to do the transposition like you do.

Boogie, I don't recollect your application. Or did you have a different name then? I think I should clarify what Schroedinger said - we do accept Aspies who have identifiable mental health problems, but since AS is a neurological problem not a mental health one, it alone would not be a qualification. The members agreed that having a mental health problem yourself is one of the criteria for membership, and if we change this it would have to be agreed by the membership not just the hosts. We could have a look at this.

I do this too, and I'm not even Aspie (though my son is): 1 is white, 2 is cream, 3 is yellow, 4 is red or orange, 5 is blue, 6 is orange or red, 7 is green, 8 is brown and 9 is purple (how does that relate to Cuisinere rods?). Also I used to do mental arithmetic by imagining cream coloured figures on a maroon background - these are (or were) the colours of Coventry buses!

A good Bible verse for us neurodiverse peeps:

Psalm 139:14

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

So it has!

I thought, when the verse sprang to mind (it's from one of my favourite Psalms) that I'd seen part of it online somewhere, somewhen....

The missing 'e' has been duly noted... [Snigger]

I have been thinking about a private neurodiversity support board board, that is one which includes other non neurotypical people and not restricted to autistic people.

Any views on this?

My thoughts are that there needs to be some debate on acceptance of ND people as normal, I think that would be better tackled in public on an 8th day board. I'm willing to host, subject to Ship admin approval and be involved in a ND private board should that follow.

Any thoughts on this as well? Fell free to disagree, I am just throwing out ideas.

@ Balaam - I think there is room for two boards, one private and one public. I have put in an application for a private board to Simon, and he is waiting till the *new* ship is launched in December to give me a decision.

As we are regularly reminded, the ship is public. It's possible that shipmates may wish to post on a private board matters that they would would not necessarily wish to put up for public discussion and comment.

Advisory hostly oink

I've taken advice from the Admins, and if you would like to throw open the idea of a new Eighth Day board, the way to go is by starting a thread in the Styx asking for thoughts and input.

Thanks.

I haven't forgotten 8th day, but with Ship 3.0 on the slipway I am biding my time, waiting to see if an 8th day will still be there.

Why don't you raise the question on this board?
