About Sica

Bio

My name is Sica and I am proud to have helped recover many autistic persons. It is an ability that anyone has. At 20, I proposed myself to try to understand the meaning of life and be a monk in the society. At 30, I felt remorse to live without compassion for the have nots. I am 40 now and happy like 8. I live with less than 2 dollars a day so I am the poorest foreigner in China. When I work with someone's heart, be it -2 or 90+ years old, I use my heart and body, some objects and the energy we all have. I have yet to find one autistic person I couldn't see how to help, yet some parents often abuse their role and disapprove of help. Meanwhile, I volunteer a lot in education, social support, recycling, psychotherapy, social development. My job record is in journalism, administration, databases, marketing, teaching, architecture, psychology, even acting. My best teacher is a 14yo girl (from South China) who runs one marathon each day (from 3 to 6 AM) and my best student is a high school graduate and university student at 15. My own company is supposed to offer business and personal development advice, but Chinese markets sometimes require special assistance. I wish to have an opportunity on TED to explain what autism is and how to recover from it. More details, if necessary, as one may ask.

An idea worth spreading

I use it everyday! It is the energy of something that is more than consciousness. It is applicable to anything and make everything count. An idea worth spreading? SOCIETY and FAMILY, these two are the problem of everything human. Social CULTURES mostly disregard any individual, while family CULTURES discredit social identities. When one dissolves the barriers that conceptualize THE person, ONE and we ALL might realize that we are only senses of another reality (none of which is family, group, district, country or humanity). Until then, I feel everyDAY is dark, because we are addressing wrong channels. We are all DARK maybe, as long as ONE seems to triumph about the singularity of A self represented WORD.

I'm passionate about

Life / Invention / Sound / Energy / Recycling / Life / Invention / Sound / Energy / Recycling / ... Everything as One

My TED story

I watched or listened to about 200 talks. I hope that one day I could open eyes on TED, about autism at least. I even hope that some experts in China and abroad would agree to test autism treatment methods live. Life to me (even without watching or reading) is so amusing now, with people everywhere (without words) providing most information I need. Maybe one day TED would break the barrier of sound and step into reality (I mean: not be a journal, but a reality maker). Meanwhile, thanks to mr Ted for trusting himself to launch TEDx. For better access to solutions through talks, hopeful we keep ... TogEther.D

Ajit Narayanan: A word game to communicate in any language
People with limited conceptual needs would learn less characters. Chinese is a bi-lingual system, where speaking and writing have lately been overwritten. In the past, one character was like one banknote. If you forgot it, it might not be yours. If you can't get it, it is not yours. Nowadays, language enforcement by modern societies does seem to force banknotes into the hand of people. So, character's value diverges. Yet most modern people are part of this complex language made up of raw tree and house environment with limbs of modern signage, cityscape and soap opera emotions.

Gabriel Stancu, I can use any object or any soft as a tool rather than an exact model for exchanges. Children or handicapped (to say so) rely on perceptions that common adults disregard or fail to distinguish. Communication language for them relies on concepts inside the brain rather than sensory objects. The use of things makes the story, for them. While for ordinary people, stories are ruled by the society. I used tablet's interactive options from software not for special problem people and got results as if I had used establihed concepts. It's wonder to see a Chinese deal with noise on the Android phone like we do let our eyes do with text.

Eoin Travers, I wish you knew one such charitable body to back up an autism recovery program. I worked with 60 so children and improvement is as fast as problem pointed at well. Mainstream experts or families practice "science" as a rule, instead of alternative. So, in my humble experience in France and China, could not find One. And solutions I have, and suffer silently for these problem kids.

I was very disappointed by FreeSpeech one year ago and am still reluctant to share my view. The software is not more than other trials made by educated persons to quench the feeling of loss in front of autistic kids. I am surprised at how experts deal with so simple problems. Every autistic person I have met and worked with can communicate with me, only using the body, with its various parts. No need to probe pictures, no need to slow down reason. I wish someone would invite me to TED, for a definitive explanation of what is autism and how to recover from it, instead of wondering about machines (the way drunkards wonder about a new sort of liquids). With all my respect to the app creator, though, since I know how much efforts are needed everywhere.
