An informal attempt is made to convey the essence of a causal understanding of autism that was reached under the influence of my three great teachers, Konrad Lorenz, Gregory Bateson and Robert Rosen. Especially Gregory Bateson understood every detail. He was the father of the double-bind theory, an interactional trap that anyone can fall into as a person. About this I will not write in the following – only positive things. I mention here just one unexpected implication of the following text: Homo sapiens equals Pongo goneotrophicus – the human species is the “parent-feeding ape.” This acquired trait is open to a causal understanding and hence to therapy if wanting. A recent monograph by Marga Vicedo is quoted as an important backdrop.
