What is the monkeysphere?
OK. After reading this, the following came to mind:
*Look at the estimated monkeysphere of the average human being. Now look at how many people are "friends" of yours on facebook. How big is the overlap with "real life" friends?
*I've used the phrase "wandering moral compass" before, and meant it. But what if these people just have an extremely small monkeysphere? Possible?
*Those with ASD have a stronger tendency to see morality as black and white, wrong or right, yes or no... then apply it without discretion to their world, life, surroundings, and peers. Is the concept of the monkeysphere applicable here, in these specific cases where that is true? Do those with ASD who apply a blanket moral code have a bigger monkeysphere? If so, is this because EVERYONE is important... or no one is?
*also: "Monkeysphere"? REALLY!?
[Yes, some people will notice that I have also posted this elsewhere on the intarnets]
