  • Mar 11 2013: Central I think is communication, looking at he notebooks of leonardo davinci as an example; I have three but importantly 'without' drawings & illustrations. This to me became obvious and very disruptive so having a clear comprehension of his expressions without this form of leonardo's communications made them much less understandable, okay to me. lol Additional point, I know a brilliant son of a ivy physicist who is pigeonholed as attention disordered who is very much thwarted by this diagnosis emotionally I feel it stymies his pursuit big time.
