Frozen Poo in Cangzhou.
posted at 08:45 am on 12-18-2010
After a turbulent 2000's I finally seem to have settled in China, the land of my ancestors. AND a very backwards country in regards to basic medical services to help Autisitcs.
I can see why. I work and live out of Cangzhou, a factory town in Hebei province. Which resembles Mos Esley Space port, complete with Scum and Villians preying on the town folk. (ummm kind of pitcher what the moon looks like with darkened shack shanty shops with a singular luminary white light.
Very Outer Rim kind of atomosphere. But not all is bad, about this place it's the home of a Form of Kung Fu, is home to one of Humanities oldiest piece of art (infront of the convention center). And the people are actually very nice. But it is a worker's town. The inner city is actually quite nice, I just lived in the outer edge at the Cangzhou Vocational College.
I have discovered that I'm heir to a Dragon Eye plantation, and am in volved or the one of the last of my Generation who can answer the challenge of wrestling the deed out of this old greedy party member's hands. The village is depeneding on me.
As an suspected Autistic, I want to lend a succor hand to upgrade this remote village in Guangxi, but for now I'm working, learning the language, (it's quite difficult, but if one thing us Aspies excelle at is impossible tasks), such as language aquisition, patterns.
I'm learning through literacy. Already I have recognized some characters. Through kindness and compassion and concern for my fellow peeps I want to bring to the forefront awareness of mental illnesses, or different thinking.
China, currently has more important things to worry about, to worry about the mental well being or intergration of people with difference. As evident in bullying, patriarchi, and jingonism.
There were many times when I just wanted to go back to Canada, to my Chef Boyadee Panagos, Flames, clean water, TOILET BOWL (because water is in limited resources (due to an aged infrastructure unable to cope with a population explosion, and water being diverted to forestry and agriculture), and funds used to upgrade the pet projects of the Party (the Special Economic Zones). God bless thier Huttese Hearts (Guangdong, Hong Kong, Macau, Beijing, and other high tech cities). The rest of China has to fend for themselves and thus slowly grow. As expected, growth in education (forget all those propagandas about Chess Whizes, Stem Cell Gods/esses, and Cyborgnetic little girl gymnasts), China is very rural and 2nd world.
The People themselves who put the "People" in "People's" republic of China, are slowly building the country through reform, While party members steal sums of money that make Bernie Madoff, look like a pauper! But China is still very "Victorian", with it's early Victorian issues. Especially mental health, and aid to different people. While it's the Aspies who are the gymnasts, who are the Go-ban (connect 4 but with black and white pebbles and 5 to win) and Chess players .
The Olympics and the Expo are just illusions, China was just clever enough to invest all over the world with the trade surpluses of the 90s. Japan still makes supurb technologly... The super rich and super eliet. Soulless, will atone for their ignorance in Buddhist Bardo. (coincidently I've seen these dark Hades like deminsions in many dreams. While not physically in pain, Looking at black mucky rivers (inky rivers), is quite depressing. There's a river behind one of our workers places the Pungs, beside the Cangzhou Nuke plant (there were over 50 nuke plants I counted on my ride up from Shanghai to Cangzhou (on that bullet train, the Mark 2 version broke the world speed record I hear).
Now why the name Frozen poo in Cangzhou. Because the place lacks toilets unless you're super rich and live in an apartment with one. And unfortunate to live in a block of houses (clusters of houses served by a communal 4x4 square outhouse, where there are no partitions), at 4 am and you really need to go... ( found out that they use Chamber pots and dump it out in the morning), at 40- Well knows how Khan was able to rule he largest empire..... He's mongoli and it's more north than this place..... up there in the Siberian places. ha ha ha colder crapping.
Once I've saved up, and learned enough of this Strange ancestorial customs of the Chiense I aim to be an active player in this game. (Aspies love games, well the Gamer Aspies do anyways), speaking of which, yes, the stereotype of Starcraft is true. (however, There are other competing games, with a chinese motif where you play as this heavenly Chinese chick kicking monsters, or reenact the 3 Kingdoms, or fictional chinese achronisitc MPPOGS. those seem to be more popular.
I also plan to amuse myself by coping the bible into Chinese, or Quran, and pass them off to my neighbors. However, contrary to the official reports of China shooting Christians, not so. or from what I've seen. (I've only been here for two months), Infact, perhaps we've entered that state where Christians arn't perscuted as much, as St. Anthony discovered. However, churches are still heavily monitored as "Patriotic Churches", where clergy are trained by the government, BUT, say in the case of Catholism, some Fathers are sanctioned by both the government AND the Vatican. As I discovered. And the bible is not such a perscuted literature (Falun Gong definatly), but with the Patriotic churches, Bibles are readily avilable. And As for Islam..... The Hui Chinese, have been Muslims for hundreds of years, they're Gentically Chinese Hans, but Muslims. Cangzhou is home to a ancient Hui population, centuries old Mosque, and a growing Uighir population.
The question of Uighirstan, and Tibet? (These don't belong to China the traditional Sino-sphere never penetrated the Tibetan platau, however swung southward to the Guangs. (Guangdong, Guangzi). Both the KMT (Taiwan), and CCP have done terrible perscutions that our people must Attone for. HOWEVER, Tibetan Lords are prone to kidnapping Ethnics of the Guangs as bride and sexual slaves.
Uighirstan (East Turkmenstan, currently Xinnang), South Xiinang belongs to the Uighries, the North belongs to the Hans (we explored the empty land and settled).
Eventually the New China, (lol Communist China was supposed to be the NEW China), Ancient problems, mideval problems, especially the Dragon Eye plantions, all 400 Hectatres of it. But after a decade on the side lines, I have to step up.... I'm on the Ice, much of our attempts of micromanagement and volunteering are based on initative. Such as Missionary building, and snap decisions must be made.
First things first, let's get the hospitals in, let's clean up the neighborhood, and upgrade so that less waste is produced, and thus preventing more Autistics (not the functional ones, the ones that disabled example physically), or prevent still births, Let it be known that the Guangs is the ground Zero for the Influenza pandemics of the world. If left unchecked undeveloped, and poverty broken down... Super bugs will just keep on coming out of that place like a broken sewer line. I have to tell the truth. To fix things, you need to know what's broken. Poverty and ignorance, and materialism. But one mustn't forget the human factor, to serve and heal people who are affected.
Schools for Auspies, schools for the deaf or disabled, to include, and not encourage ignorance of keep the "freak locked" in a closet bumkinisms. Or that is a family of weirdos etc. What about me? the guy who's trying to help? Because my mind doesn't work as quickly, I exist in a foggy existance of confusion and observation, and I'm quite clumsy.... again "Wrong planet", (what if these "humans" are on a planet where Aspies mannerisms are the norm, of course i mean this figuratively that we're not form another planet). Or I take instructions literally, I dont' understand idiomatic instructions in ENGLISH. how the hell am I going to understand them in Chinese right?
Well time to put my anal retentive prefectionsms, and hard work (my Aspie skills), to the test, to show them that Aspies aren't evil Chinese mytholigical monsters you read as a kid).
I plan to donate Gold to the Aspie school, I think that's how it works. to make a donation that keeps on growing?
Like ignorance and superstitions prevail among this ancient Chinese people. To the point, that parents are freaking out contemplating mass familar suicide, because isolation and stigma is so perpeptual. Perhaps I would like to fund some documentaries, or invite documentaries to be sent descretly to show the world the plight.
Speaking of backwards and superstitions, like brutality. I saw one of those children with Acid eyes (as on Slum Dog Milliionare). We my family went to go pick up a client at the airport, and this boy is quided by his "mother", ( honestly, wanted to kill here then). If there is one thing I will not stand for is abuse to children! (often in my dreams I am some kind of guardian for very lost and scared children, one boy I ducked in and out of allys from these police who were trying to arrest him I think). Another I was like a wall. I find Race to Witch Mountain very delightful. how can people be such sick F's?
Always know that life may suck in the 1st world for those of use with Aspergers. But life REALLY sucks in these places, rural China for instance with NO, "wrong planet", advocates, no Aut-TV on youtube, and no Temple Grandin like mentors.
Or it could be worse we could be in a war zone with these issues like Dafur, or Haiti, or India. (there are currenlty 5 wars), or indonesia where pious preachers might mistake a seizure for a demonic possession (I am refering to a young girl having a seizure infront of the Sultan of Brunei, (he just laughed at her), and a Indonesian girl being exocised.
It angers me that some teens with perfectly formed minds, waste such gifts on indulgances with chemicals that serously mess it up. Such a gifted mind....Where as although we prefer our gifts of Aspergers and talents associated with this "syndrom", we know it is not an easy trade. We give up such things as judgement of spacial distances, and other such physical imparements. I myself hate being around people. I feel this strange nerve feeling a magentic bio electric feeling.
