Was Charles Darwin an Aspie?

If you find yourself near rocks, you won’t just ‘notice’ them.

You’ll also notice that they’re covered in lichen.

You’ll also notice that the lichen comprises at least three species.

You’ll also notice that there are live and dead patches of these species, making for at least six lichen-related colour permutations.

You’ll also notice that some of these patches seem related to the rocks’ orientation to the sun.

It certainly would’ve helped!

Then you’ll ponder the age and nature of the rocks (igneous, sedimentary, metamorphic).

Then you’ll ponder the nature of the lichen (nutrition, reproduction, life span).

Then you’ll ponder the relationship of the lichen to the rocks.

Then you’ll start thinking about fossils.

And so on.  And so on.

Until it’s time to go home.
