Comments:
When I spoke with Ivar Lovaas, he revealed that his favourite historical autistic was his fellow Norwegian, the artist Edvard Munch. This is what Munch had to say about his atypical brain, and the meaning of "indistinguishable":

"A German once said to me: 'But you could rid yourself of many of your troubles.' To which I replied: 'They are part of me and my art. They are indistinguishable from me, and it would destroy my art.'" (from Edvard Munch: The Man and His Art)
