Several Pontifications from Terrible Ted

Some Sallis theories.

The Sallis solution to the Fermi Paradox:
…racial diversity is the rule among sentient species; thus, highly divergent human racial types find their counterparts in significant racial variability among the alien peoples inhabiting worlds unknown. I further propose a Gresham’s law of universal racial diversity: the more intelligent and productive races of any sentient species will tend to be demographically outcompeted by the more stupid and useless races; the latter, despite their deficiencies for proximate values, are inevitably more fit with respect to the ultimate criterion of survival.  The threshold of technological competence for a detectable alien civilization would no longer obtain as the race or races capable of maintaining that civilization are replaced by those incapable.  Therefore, no such civilizations are detected.
The Sallis theory of autism.  Thus, the race recognition processing software of the amygdala (also involved in threat recognition) of Whites, particularly White children, is capable of easily distinguishing highly distinct racial types - Europeans, sub-Saharan Africans, (pure) Amerindians, and East Asians.  But the post-1965 immigration influx into America (and similar immigration influxes into Europe) has brought into White societies previously rare, more racially intermediate types – South Asians, heavily admixed Latin Americans, Middle/Near Easterners and North Africans. This phenotypically confusing racial diversity “scrambles” the amygdala of susceptible White children, increasing risk for autism.  Hence, the link between diversity and autism and, hence, an explanation for some of the population-autism correlations discovered by James Bowery some years ago.

As regards politics - my “Sallis strategy.”
