There is a special area which i haven't covered : autism. I am no expert on this. There are many different forms of autism and maybe what i suggest applies only to some forms. But i wonder how autism and panoraming are connected.

I know young children have an autistic phase. It seems to me that adult autists are unable to inhibit their childhood panoramic sensitivity.

I'm wondering if the senses of smell and taste and especially the humming exercises – could be a stabilising influence for autistic people, and maybe also people who are extremely sensitive or agoraphobic.

Then i'm wondering if daydreaming and panoraming are being confused. How often are children enjoying an autistic/panoramic moment, and then being criticised or disciplined for daydreaming? How often are panoramic moments being confused with attention deficiency or ADHD?

There would be great wisdom in a balanced education system, teaching both focused and panoramic sensing.

I'd be very interested in communication with experts in these fields.
